A GROUP has formed to show that a fun night out in Barnsley is possible without alcohol.

The Immortals group has teamed up with Young Addaction, a service working in Barnsley to support young people with alcohol and drug issues, to plan a series of booze free nights out for summer.

The Immortals also raises awareness about the risks of dangerous and excessive drinking and drug use.

Among its first summer events are live DJ set evenings. The first for 14 to 18-year-olds was last week at Sara's Flowers and Teas on Pitt Street in Barnsley.

The Immortals will also take over Experience Barnsley museum in July and work with the arts organisation Creative Recovery on street art in August.
