Take a look back at 30 Disco Henry photos from a 2009 Saturday night out at Groove and Lava nightclubs in Northampton
Take a look back at 30 pictures Northampton's 'mini celebrity' Disco Henry took while out at Groove and Lava nightclubs in Northampton in March 2009.
Disco Henry has been taking photos of revellers in Northampton and Wellingborough nightclubs since 2004 - he was possibly one of the first in the town to really utilise the internet and social media to provide people with memories of their nights out.
In an exclusive interview with Chronicle & Echo, Disco Henry gave an insight into what it's been like being a "mini celebrity" across the county.
He said: "I would say I'm a mini celebrity in Northants. If you asked most people I would say they know me. People know of me and obviously my Facebook, which has about 26,000 followers now.
"It's lovely to be recognised and to be appreciated for my work. I think 99 per cent of people appreciate what I do. I just do it because I love people.
"When people look back on my pictures they say how good the nights out were. I was taking a thousand photos some nights. I have probably met and pictured millions of people.
"Between 2006 and 2015 were my favourite years. My favourite nights were at NB's and Lava Ignite because of the larger capacity of people. Embargos was great. Groove was great, too. It was a lot more fun 10 years ago than it is now, there was more camaraderie."

In playing a collection of Pink Floyd songs at a concert at the Orpheum Theatre, in Boston on October 31 2008, Gov’t Mule thought they doing little more than adhering to a tradition beloved of improvisational “jam bands”. After all, for them and others, the idea of paying tribute to the greats on Halloween was nothing new. On this date in years past, “Mule”, as they are known to their friends, had devoted at least half of their show to artists such as (among others) Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, Bla

The greatest film score of 2023 isn’t eligible for an Academy Award. That’s because Leonard Bernstein composed it between 1944 and 1977, multiple pieces that collectively form the musical backdrop of “Maestro,” Bradley Cooper’s film about the 20th century American composer-conductor. The classical excerpts functioning as dramatic score include Bernstein’s ballets “Fancy Free” and “Facsimile,” …
