An Ilford nightclub will welcome a 90s music star for a throwback event of dance anthems in aid of a cancer charity close to the organiser’s heart.

Craig Bonser, of East Ham, has attracted Blackbox’s Katrin Quinol to perform her number one single Ride on Time at If Bar, Ilford Hill, Ilford on Saturday.

The Jubilee weekend night will raise funds for World Cancer Research Fund in memory of Craig’s grandparents, who both died as a result of the disease a decade apart.

Also on the bill for the event is Jessica Mitchell (aka DJ Connoisseur), who believes the Blackbox star will be a fitting “queen for the night”.

She said: “The venue will be playing their part in the royal jubilee weekend celebrations by temporarily bringing back those club land glory days otherwise known as the 1990s.

“Expect to witness an unashamed marriage of race, generation and sexualities on the night.”

Tickets are priced at £5 online and can be purchased from
