Leeds Central Soul Club Xmas 13 hour special

December 22nd/23rd 2013 @Hifi & Wire Club Leeds.

Something a little extra for the ‘Leeds Central’ regulars and new followers.

A 13 hour, 2 club special event.

Including ALL of the resident DJs (all 10 of ‘em), including 2 new recruits, Sammy Seaman & Stewart Richards.

With our special guest, the legendary

DJ ‘Neil Rushton’.

Neil got Rare Soul bug at 16 years old attending George Hotel, Walsall. Neil graduated to DJing at Wolverhampton ‘Catscombs’ in 1974. When it closed he got into promoting his own events under ‘Heart of England’ Soul Club banner. From 1975, aged 21, he promoted the now iconic All-Dayers @ ‘Manchester Ritz’ which carried on until 1980, and also promoted and DJd at the huge (3,000 plus attendances) ‘ Blackpool Mecca’ with live USA acts including ‘Brass Construction, Crown Heights Affair, Players Association & Sylvester’.

In 1976 Neil became first staff writer for ‘Black Echoes’ Magazine.

Neil set up the ‘Inferno’ re-Issue label. His record finds in USA included 863 copies of ‘Frankie Beverly & The Butlers - If that's what you wanted’ on the original ‘Sassy’ label.

In early 80's Neil DJ’d and co-promoted the ‘Old Vic’ in Wolverhampton which fed records to Stafford’s ‘Top of The World’ All-Nighters.

Neil owns various Northern Soul master recordings, two of which are ‘The Crow -Your Autumn of Tomorrow" and ‘Luther Ingram Orchestra - Exus Trek" both are included in forthcoming Film "Northern Soul".

Neil wrote and published the book "Northern Soul Stories", and Co-published and edited the book "Hype & Soul - Behind the scenes at Motown" by Al Abrams, Promoting now under ‘Soulvation’ brand.

So there ya go, some history there, and he’ll be performing 2 x 1 hour sets just for you.

Please read the following carefully

The event will be spread over 2 venues, ‘Hifi’ the usual venue, from 1pm til’ 8pm, and then will transfer across to ‘HiFi’s’ sister venue ‘Wire’, which is a 2 minute walk from ‘Hifi’ opposite the ‘Corn Exchange’, from 8pm-2am.

Wire’ is an excellent venue very similar to ‘Hifi’ in size and décor, it has been carefully chosen and will complement the event perfectly.

Payment choices

You have the choice to go to either one or the other, or both venues.

If you just want to attend the day event at ‘Hifi’, you can pay on the door £6

If you just want to attend the night event at ‘Wire’, you can also pay on the door £6

If you want to attend both events for the full 13 hours, you can purchase a ticket

from the website below for just £10, so that’s a saving of £2 each on the 2 single events price.

There will be a £1 postage charge for tickets, BUT that is for as many tickets as you want,

so 1 ticket £1 postage, 10 tickets £1 postage, there is NO BOOKING FEE on tickets, and tickets will be posted 1st class.

Payment through ‘Paypal’

You do not need a ‘Paypal’ account to pay using ‘Paypal’,

just follow the simple instructions.

You can also wait and pay on the day for the full event, the admission charge will be £12 on the door.

So there yer go! A little complicated, but it’s gonna be well worth it believe me, this event will be a milestone for the ‘Leeds Central’ and if it all goes well, we have to option to do 3 or 4 a year!!

Usual rules apply — Over 18s only, No drinks allowed to be taken into either venue, Bags will be searched on entry, No drinks allowed on the dance floor and no spillage. Both venues are Talc friendly!!

See you all there for a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!

HI STEVE,

 

Bloody typical!!

 

The first time you manage to arrange a date that does not clash with my other favourite event on sunday, the horse and groom, and i am away for the weekend. I was really looking forward to this one and meeting up with the resident dj,s and many old friends that i know will be in attendance.

 

Hey Ho, maybe next time.

 

Good luck for the day i am sure it will be packed as usual.

 

regards ROY

Well! Woke up today with virtually no voice, sore feet and knees. Great day yesterday at the Central.
The next day always makes me realise how good it actually was, as it's hard to focus on the day with all the stress of getting everything organised and running as smoothly as possible.
Thank you all for the great comments on here, it all helps send out the message that what we have is one of the best Northern Soul events in the UK, and makes me proud that you are all happy with it.
2014 is going to be a big year for the Central, in April we will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary of the reunions, it's also a bank Holiday so maybe something special is on the cards.
Thank you all for your support, and have a great Xmas and a happy new year.

Qoute from Neil Rushton

"Great time at Leeds Central yesterday. Brilliant atmosphere at totally rammed venue. Good to see so many people I had lost touch with over the years including Andy Simpson. Brilliant crowd to play records to. Top marks Steve Luigi for putting it all together."
Thanks Neil, top day top tunes and a top man!

Hi Steve

 

I was supposed to be having a soul free (event wise) period over the holiday season, and was quite content with my decision, that is, until I attended the Leeds Central.  Crikey mikey what a wonderful afternoon I had!!  & was well chuffed that I'd decided to break my abstinence!!

 

Great atmosphere, great music, some cheesy music thrown in (to go with the crackers) & the dancefloor loved it.  What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon, with some crazy & bonkers friends, giggling, singing & having a good old shimmy

 

Sorry I couldn't make the evening do, but I was working the next day, plus I was completely cream crackered from all the fun & frolics of the afternoon session.

 

It really was a superb so thanks Steve  :hatsoff2:

 

All the very best for Christmas & the New Year

 

Ali xx
