Yo ! Mace

 

My usual sales table if you don't mind. :thumbsup:

Wow! just noticed how many Dj bookings the ubiquitous Ted Massey is doing tonight  :sweatingbullets: , is anyone sponsoring him ?  :D

 They don't call him the Alan Wicker of Northern Soul for nothing. :yes:

For god sake don't blink you might miss him. :wicked: Will he have a change of Shirt for each individual venue ?  :g:

Ted Massey pays me to let him DJ at Bidds so I can't really dock him any money!

Directions.....

FROM M6

Exit M6 from Junction 15 if coming from South, or Junction 16 if coming from North onto the A500 towards Stoke.

Exit the A500 at the A50 Meir / Uttoxeter / Derby junction, passing S.C.F.C. Britannia Stadium on right..

... Turn off A50 on 3rd exit for Longton East and Normacot. Turn left and head towards Longton on Uttoxeter Rd.

About 50 yards further down Uttoxeter Road turn right onto Meir Hay Road

Follow this road and it bends to the left - it then becomes Sutherland Road after bend.

BIDDS is down this road on right side, just after petrol station and hardware store on same side.

Drive to bottom left hand corner of car park for entrance.

FROM DERBY/UTTOXETER/NOTTS etc on A50.

Exit A50 on Normacot slip road (about half mile after Meir Tunnel).

Turn right at top of slip road, going back over the top of the A50 and head towards Longton (East)

About 50 yards further down Uttoxeter Road turn right onto Meir Hay Road

Follow this road and it bends to the left - it then becomes Sutherland Road after bend.

BIDDS is down this road on right side, just after petrol station and hardware store on same side.

top all nighter at Bidds .. a great cross section of music from all dj's with no "tumbleweed" spots from certain dj's that seem to be happening at one or two places of late leaving the next dj with a rescue mission..... its all a matter of sense and mix , and i am glad to say the dj's at bidds have that sense to get it right for most .. roll on next n' :)

It was the first visit for the four of us who travelled from Wigan n Manchester to Bidds

We all enjoyed it and we will be back again

It is a no frills nighter and I enjoyed most of the DJ spots

It was good to catch up with my old Wigan mate Kev Murphy who played a cracking set

Ted Massey and Rob Smith demonstrated once again why they are sought after has top DJs

It is so good to see DJs and Promoters like Vinny Francis-Jez Jones-Mark Freeman-Casper visiting other venues as punters and that is appreciated by the nighter crew one of the reasons why there events are so succesfull

I'd hardly call Bidds a no frills Allnighter these days after witnessing the on going restoration of the interior décor.

The new murals which adorn the walls of the gent's bogs are really something to behold. :yes:

So as soon as they get rid of the taste of Chlorine from the beer pumps and add a chicken in a basket menu, a Michilen star surely awaits. Mind you the red flock wallpaper does occasionally clash with Ted Massey's shirt :wicked:

Oh! the music ain't bad either :thumbsup: although the dodgy mike did make a few Dj's sound like Stephen Hawkins :lol:

Cheers folks, many thanks to all those who turned out to support us, same goes for DJs and door staff.

Apologies for mic, had a technical issue with the mic channel on my mixer which I eventually sorted 10 mins into Rob Smiths set at 5am....shoulda left it be, fcuk me he can chat some between tunes!

Ted Massey was still up after 4.45.......bet he never saw much of Sunday!

Nice to see Mrs Foster and Mrs Welding making the most of the comfy armchairs.....now looking at booking DFS for my next venue!

Kev, we tie bells onto our sheep when we know you guys are coming.

No ring means they are safe.

Irregular ringing means they are being chased.

Fast paced ringing on a regular rhythmic beat means you caught one!
