Located in the heart of downtown, Origin Live is on a mission to restore the city’s once thriving music and entertainment scene and “bring variety back to Batley”.
Owned and operated by international 80s city superstar DJ Nick Westwell – who was integral to the resurgence of Batley’s much-loved Frontier as managing director before it closed in 2016 – the famed promoter has proudly created a space for the public to enjoy good old-fashioned entertainment without breaking the bank.
Located on the ground floor of 379 Bradford Road, Batley, Origin Party Bar features a long spring-loaded dance floor, a full stage for live performances and a professional sound and lighting system .
Acts confirmed for his 2022 season include:
May 15: Elvis Legacy (tribute).
May 28: Barmy Bingo (fun and fun bingo game for adults).
June 12: Robbie Williams (tribute).
August 7: Tom Jones (tribute).
September 10: Love Train by Brutus Gold (world No. 1 in the 70s).
Every Friday evening: The Singer Takes It All (karaoke: price £50 – entry free).
Every Saturday evening: Is Party Night – free admission.
Speaking ahead of Origin Live’s 2022 schedule, Nick said: “This year is exciting for us and we have even more planned than announced, we’re just waiting for contracts to be signed.
“There is a misconception about what the place is and what it does, so let me clarify.
“Historically, the building was a two-room venue – that is no longer the case.
“It’s two sites in one building and they operate independently – you can’t switch between them.
“They have separate entrances and exits on different streets and opening and closing times are staggered so customers on one don’t have to interact or engage with the other.
“The minimum age to enter is 21 and we operate an under 25 ID policy, so if you are lucky enough to be under 25, photo ID will be required.
“We also have a strict no sportswear policy (joggers, tracksuits, gym shorts, etc.). Smart casual attire (jeans and trainers) is acceptable.
“We definitely exceed customer expectations because everyone is amazed when they walk in how beautiful it is and more importantly ‘feels’.
“It’s just one of those rooms that has its own fabulous vibe.
“It’s a real cozy place of entertainment for adults who don’t want the drama and abuse associated with going out for drinks these days.”
In addition to its live event schedule, beginning in late May, Origin will open every Sunday afternoon during the summer months.
