Cheers Gaz,

Look forward to seeing you and the Shropshire Posse on the 9th.

It is reminiscent of those mad, cold treks to Blackpool in the early 70s. All my 'straight' mates (the ones who liked the music but weren't obsessed) thought I was mad: "traveling 130 miles for an evening disco, you must be off yer 'ed". But us soulies were... and still are - in the eyes of Joe Public.

The soul is strong in us.

KOKO,

Pep.

PS. No escalators to contend with here mind you!

Looking good and on my birthday too - time for a celebration! Clifford family members are attending!

We'll be over with Harpo & Sandi as we're staying with them that weekend. A few of the southerners are coming over too, at least they said they were at Rugby...

:-)

Good to meet up with Pep after all these years and old friends and new. Enjoyed playing some tunes out loud at this great venue. I felt all the dj's played some blinding sets- In the summer this venue will come into its own on the seafront in Minehead ktf.

Yes agree with Matt

terrific venue, loads of potential, some cracking tunes played by the seaside,

get the numbers in and the atmosphere will go through the roof in a venue like this

Yes, thanks Pete and Matt for pointing out the greatness of this venue: a very nicely decorated former theatre with balcony and pillared basement nightclub space. Additionally there is a raised area, ideal for record dealers and a chill-out room at the rear of the balcony. Finally there is an outside balcony overlooking the sand and sea... just 20 yards away!

It would be hard to imagine a more ideal venue for Northern Soul, and would undoubtedly be a contender for number one were it situated in the North or the Midlands. A big venue it has to be said, with a capacity of over 800 - a size ideally suited to weekenders and the like, which we plan to run in due course.

Great music played throughout by very good DJs to a small, but appreciative crowd.

I am grateful to all of you for your support and enthusiasm.

'Pep'.
