As our city sees more big changes in 2021 to its layout and infrastructure, one casualty amongst these new developments is the former synagogue building on Anne Street in Hull.
This building won't be recognised by many readers under this use, but the building later became one of Hull's top night spots during the 90s and 2000s.
The building was significantly altered and opened as the Studio Circus nightclub in 1990, under the management of Steve Smith. It was famously opened by the sister of the late Michael Jackson, LaToya Jackson, who performed in front of an excited VIP crowd.
Subsequent names after re-brandings included Eclipse, Ritzy, the Fez Club and finally Heaven & Hell.
It included a neighbouring bar, known earlier as Central Park with an American Diner theme, later to change to Po Na Na Souk Bar when branding changed to Fez. Finally it became Bar Purgatory when the name changed to Heaven & Hell.
Our original image was taken in April, 1992, after a name change to Ritzy, with a fresh coat of paint on the outside. It's believed the site is to be cleared for a hotel development.
Although not as high profile as the Lexington Avenue nightclub which also had a longer history, many will have fond memories of great nights out there

Merit pupil referral unit, in Bucknall, supports young people with medical and mental health needs.
It is now undergoing an expansion so it can almost double the number of places available, from 38 to 72. The improvements will include a new science lab, ICT suite, intervention room for small group teaching, and a redesigned reception.
Work is just starting on the project and is due to be completed in time for September
