1989

During 1989 the club was closed until May, opening on 15 May to enormous queues on Brighton seafront.

In 1989 the Zap also got a new logo and Ian Smith and Zap stalwart Angie Dight moved to Glasgow to investigate a potential tour with Circus Archaos. Here they established their own performance company Mischief La-Bas that continued to supply the Zap (and, from 1998, the National Street Arts Festival) with productions created by the “original face of the Zap”.

To conclude the year, the Zap ritualistically deconstructed Christmas with ?Hamlet the Panto’. This had all the laughs and thrills of a Shakespearian Tragedy - a smile, a song and a fatal stabbing.
