HOLLYWOOD star and international DJ, Idris Elba, will be heading to Bournemouth for a special party this Bank Holiday weekend.

The talented actor who played Detective John Luther in the BBC1 series Luther, will perform a DJ set at Halo on Sunday, April 30 as part of the town centre club's fourth birthday celebrations.

Club owner Ty Temel told the Echo: "Everyone loves Idris Elba. We worked very hard to pull this one off and expect the night to be sold out out by the time doors open.

"We've had people like DJ Pete Tong, Tamar Hassan and Zane Lowe to help us celebrate in the past, but Idris Elba has to be our biggest booking to date."

Ty added that the star is known for being very selective about which clubs he chooses to DJ at - usually clubs in Ibiza and the US.

"Idris will be playing big current house and dance anthems plus a few classics thrown in for good measure," he said.

"We are as excited for this birthday more than ever, which is great considering the four years of hard work and great parties we have already put on.

"Despite all the negatives from the beginning, we have won best club three years on the bounce and now we have an Hollywood actor coming to celebrate with us."

As an exclusive special offer for Daily Echo readers, we are giving away four pairs of VIP tickets worth £25 each.

The lucky winners will have fast track VIP access to the venue and upstairs VIP balcony plus the best views of the man himself.
