nirvana was a monthly trance night at the converted coronet theatre at elephant & castle. it was an update of the 'escape from samsara' night that ran since 1991 at the fridge in brixton, which was the most successful trance night in london. the main room burst with brightly clad clubbers, ariel performers on silks and various performers amongst the crowd. a huge screen hung above the dj box with video images. the dj’s included darren shambhala (gods kitchen), choci, nick sentience, tim samsara and tidy trax producer dave holmes. the nirvana night has been succeeded by nights such as the we party at the coronet. these club events take place at the venue once every two months. tim samsara has also brought his own club night, 'escape from samsara' to the coronet theatre and had collaborations with the 'pendragon' club night in may 2012.
