THE STORY SO FAR....
The Marisco Disco is one of North Devon's most loved and treasured nightspots. It's been the destination for thousands of Disco goers for the last 50 years and we think she is need of a serious makeover as well as essential repair works to bring her into the twenty-tens and get through the season.
The club plays an important and intergral part of the community, a great deal of tourism makes its way to Woolacombe thanks to Marisco. Without it's prescence the demographic of the area would change considerably, and not for the better! Lets help keep the atmosphere.
Now, we aren't going to lie, it's been a tuffy... With such a short season last year, and the constant barrage of bills, including £12,000 to fix the electrics to make you all safe and sound, plus a quote for £19,000 to replace the broken aircon (which is essential with the weather hotting up), we are sad to say there is no chance of a facelift without your help.
Saying this, we realise this is an absolutely fabulous opportunity for us and in no way do we expect you to feel sorry for us!! What we need is your help, In the form of pledges so we can get the club looking amazing and it can carry on for another 50 years.
