Looks a belter cant wait check into hotel have a few beers, see LUFC get three points, Bite to eat, shower, dance all night ! looks like I will be spending time in both the King George's room and the Windsor room equally just like the all dayers in late 70's early 80's, Mr Searling in one room Mr Curtis in the other.

No they were students who were inebriated and ( as one of the more eloquent djs) put it , would have danced to the fire alarm. Very sad that a long established soul night ends up like this. Twenty odd soulies and forty odd assorted idiots. On the plus side Pete Eccles performed heroically in difficult circumstances, top dj - deserves better than this.

I wrote off KGH a long time ago, it wasn't the pissheads that stopped us going but the disco divas

It's apparent the management do not listen to the regular soulies who attend

I hear constant comments about undesirables and how Pete Eccles is the star man and should be given better and longer spots but they take no notice

Never been but stop at friends who live there,they attend many soul venues but respectively give this a miss because what has been said above. Before any one charges in they have been themselves and have first hand knowledge. I'm afraid jury's out ,THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!

Such a shame about this iconic venue, a beautiful building, fabulous dance floor, balcony, large stage, the perfect venue for a banging soul night but unfortunately, and I do speak from experience, it's not the place it used to be and has turned into a bit of a soul disco for the general public of Blackburn. I'm honestly not sure what the promoters can do to re-establish this event as a highlight on our calendars the way it used to be.  The rooms still get busy, although not as busy in the days when the event was a sell out within weeks, so there is still money to be made for the promoters running an established event but a huge number of people who used to enjoy the venue in its heyday, no longer go for all the reasons highlighted above.  We are missing out. Venues of this calibre are few and far between.  I wish something could be done.

Slightly different post here regarding Saturday Night im sure it will get a few comments lol. After seeing my team lose at BRFC myself and my wife headed back to the Dunkenhaigh hotel bottle of wine and onto the Kings Hall in Blackburn. Three rooms one which was full and probably keeps the venue going Blakeys room not my scene.

 

I actually enjoyed Richard Searling who played old tracks that ive not had a chance to dance to in years Handbag commercial who gives a .... I play them in my bedroom and in car was nice to dance to some real old classics on a dance floor. In fact as we swapped rooms I thought all the DJs in the Northern Room were spot on no long gaps between songs which we have noticed at other venues. As for the above comments (as one of the more eloquent djs) put it ,would have danced to the fire alarm." Well you can only dance to what a DJ plays.

 

We flitted between Windsor rooms and danced to some great old Jazz Funk classics was a bit shocked when dance floor cleared for Jackie Moore "This Time Baby" is this now handbag music ? Apparently it was a quiet night due to the Bunny Sigler night in Radcliffe I suppose after a long day and a few beers we didn't notice students, I hope there was that gives me hope for the future of some great music that deserves to live on long after im gone.

 

Maybe as I get to more events I will have similar opinions as above but for now I would say a good night great dance floor nobody staring at my dodgy dancing or showing off (sorry that's what it looks like to a 52 year old dad) personally id go back and my wife at 50 enjoyed herself and is learning about Northern Soul next do ? Long Eaton Westgate Rooms

 

Finally big shout to the Man Utd fan from Leigh in Northern Room who insisted on showing his dodgy Man Utd tattoo on his back good laugh made my night and the guys in Jazz Funk room from Nottingham great reminiscing about Rock City Nottingham all dayers. One thing that has not changed always meet like minded soulies and make new friends.

I have been attending this event since it started.....fabulous music as ever in each room ......3 choices of different styles of soulful music......dedicated DJs ....where else will I be able to dance to Colin Curtis, Jim Hargreaves and Ginger Taylor within the space of 4 hours?! Ok so the northern room was quiet but that was probably due to Radcliffe and Rolls Royce which both attracted local northern soulies . The only downside in the northern room was Mr Searling who had a face like a slapped fish throughout his set.....he earns his money with his Blackpool Tower nights I'm sure .....so give us a smile next time please sir.....I will be there again next time!!! Just for the record I am a student at the university centre blackburn college....my handbag wasn't on the floor and I wasn't drunk or falling about. Come on you north east lancs soulies support your local events and please stop organising too many locally which clash!! Communicate!!!
