Could you give a finishing time for this event as it is listed in the all nighter event list & several members have requested this.
The 'rule of thumb' for the all nighter listing is 6am for all-nighters in the UK.

important you list the dj's, times and start/finish of event....bear in mind, this is a specific event, a lot of original members may be interested if they know who you have in mind to dj...that means, to all intents and purposes.....original catacombs djs.

I'd be interested too as I'm on the DJ list and haven't heard from the promoter  :g:

Just to clarify things - I was asked to DJ by a friend - at what I was told would be an All dayer - which I had to refuse as I will be at Orrell supporting friends - and one of our regular haunts.

I never went to the Cats as I was up in Anglesey in the RAF without transport in the early 70's.  I knew the music obviously as whenever I was home I'd be straight down Max's shop to feed my hunger for our music.

I wasn't aware that the alldayer - now an allnighter - was a Cats Memorial, although I've been to loads since moving back home 10 years ago.

I have pointed out that to the friend in question. 

There are Cats regulars far more qualified than I to represent those wonderful times -   and I would hope they have been asked 

I left it til now until posting this - to allow communication in private with those concerned 

I consider it an honour to have been asked, whether I play or not 

Regards  

Wulfie  :hatsoff2:

i'm completely flabbergasted that  i haven't even received an invite, let alone been asked to dj, and this is a venue that i attended and consider my first real foray into the world of northern soul. up until his untimely death, max was a very good friend and a person from whom, i bought many records over the years and shared many other gigs with. it appears any reference to this event being organized in a manner befitting the cats, has fallen on deaf ears or the people concerned, quite simply don't want to respond because they think they know best. if it had had soulvation's name against it as has been the case in recent years i would expect to see a line-up of djs associated with the venue, but it's pretty obvious to me that the resultant silence means neil rushton is not at the forefront when infact he should be...why are you refusing to answer perfectly legitimate questions?....i'm sorry but as far as i'm concerned, and it is only my honest opinion.....this is a sad reflection of bandwagon jumping by people who have neither representation or knowledge of the catacombs and as such it's a total sham.

I had planned on attending tonight but the lack of communication has put me right off. I only wanted to know when the night finished so I could make plans to stay or leave early. Bad show Soul Shakedown.

I really wanted to attend catacombs anniversary night also but the pathetic sorry no other words to describe the total

lack of communication on promotion side put me off. Was it too much trouble for ending time to be announced for the sake

of people who travel a long way!!!!!....... Hope it was a excellent and well attended night last night but remember next

time lots of people attended the cats club well outside the Wolverhampton area.....REALLY bad show soul snakedown!!!!!

bloody disgraceful, if this was an interpretation minus any of the original incumbents of the turntables at the catacombs..., then they are both oblivious to scrutiny and totally out of their depth. they're now obviously dodging the flack as they have even failed to reply to the mounting critisism. as has been noted on previous occasions, pep has had a massive say in anyone's intentions to procure permission to hold an authentic tribute and as far as i am aware, still holds copyright for the club's name and anything held in celebration of it....unless circumstances have changed in recent years. either way, ignorance is something not tolerated on here and the organizers of this event should hold theirselves to account for failing to state the obvious.
