“Our bodies might age but our souls are timeless” Elderly couple go clubbing until dawn in London


A Polish couple in their 80s stunned clubbers at Fabric when they showed up with tickets for an underground club night and partied until 5am.

The Warsaw pair, who were in the UK visiting their daughter in Watford, and had bought tickets to Sunday's ‘WetYourSelf’ night after reading a review of London's notorious nightclub in a Polish newspaper.

DJ Jacob Hansen, 35, told the Evening Standard he thought the couple must be lost when he saw them walking down the stairs just before 10pm.

“I was downstairs just opening and I saw her on her crutches going slowly down the stairs,” he says.

“I thought they were maybe relatives of someone from the club, but then I spoke to the people on the door and they said they had tickets.

“I ran down to welcome them to the club, I said 'it's amazing you're here' and gave them a drink.

“They had two tequila shots and she gave me a high five.”

Hansen, who has run the night for 10 years, said that after the couple downed their welcome drinks they refused any more alcohol and switched to cups of tea.

A clubber who spoke Polish told Hansen that the couple said they enjoy clubbing back home.

“The thing I really, really loved was they had so much humour between them,” Hansen tells the Standard. “They were really sweet, they were on the balcony with their hands together ballroom dancing.”

At 5am the chuffed DJ organised a free taxi ride home for the pair, who had originally planned to take the first tube back to Watford at 6am.

Sharing a picture of himself with the pair, Hansen wrote: “Our bodies might age but our souls are timeless.”
