NO TALC needed on this perfect professionally maintained floor ...... mmmmmmm not like the one this lad maintains down Padiham the last time the soul night was on there, where it he maintains the dance floor..... for some reason he decided to change the  floor polish on the advise of the Accrington people, and it was the worst floor you could dance on. Mmmmmmm makes you wonder why.

That's not a very soulful comment is it "brother Pete" ? Grow up and put your dummy back in.

 

Give another promoter a chance and in turn that gives the rest of us an opportunity once more to "Keep The Faith". 

 

I hope you will support the event with the enthusiasm and good will that other soulies support yours.

Padiham Pete has personal issues with me ! He even doubted how long I have been on the scene and asked did I do wigan ...lol

Most who know me know I have been around for about 40 years and yes did a quick couple of tracks in Mr M's when my old mate Keith Brady ( R.I.P ) got caught short in his spot.Plus guested at Blackpool Mecca ( last night ) Bretby, Winsford, Tonys - Blackburn and many more nighters & soul nights both in Germany & Sweden , plus ran the viaduct for 10 years.

Anyway he ( Padiham Pete ) never gets his facts straight.

The floor is now as perfect as possible. Talc is not needed and banned. The dancefloor had the incorrect solution being put down for around three/ four years ( and yes on advice by the council I used it and so did three others ) which was causing the seals between the wood to disolve & break up. Infact if I haddn't have got the advice from Accrington and called in the experts who look after Blackpool tower ballroom and recently Burnley Mechanics then Padiham would have been closed for upto 6 weeks at cost of almost 5k to rub down , re seal & re varnish, this would not have happened with financial cut backs.

One the things that ruins sprung dancefloors is Talc and people now using shaved candle wax plus spilling beer ! !

 

I am I have stated I am not running Accrington just helping to promote a venue that costs too much for local people to hire and giving them the chance to have a great night in the town,

yes and the floor  should be perfect, we have never had an issue with it before in nearly 7 year, the n all of a sudden when your helping to " promote" an other venue take advice from people at that venue about the floor at Padiham mmmmmm fishy. lets get facts right Alan there's not just me as you YOU say as issues with you, theres many people down Padiham who thinks the same..... any way I for one am not going to get into a slanging match with you over it. I just thought I put my and others point over..... Matters is closed for me

Accrington will be a great night as the nights at Padiham will continue to be busy. You will notice in Sept how much better the dancefloor is, remember it is designed for ballroom dancing and they who use it three times a week are very happy. If I hadn't done what I did  and called in experts then the last event would have been cancelled, then you wouldn't have been happy and i guess I would have been accused of doing that on purpose also, damed if I do damned if I don't !

Just a shame you couldn't speak of issues to my face. Matters closed .

Alan I couldn't speak of the issue to your face, as I didn't get to know about it by a number of soulies who attended the event, till the day after, at another venue. I believe some said something to Kath on the night, don't think that because I didn't say anything to your face that I didn't have the guts Alan, If I had summut to say to you "I 'LL SAY IT"..... Has for me having issues with YOU, please let me know what they are, I haven't got a clue what your going on about...... All that said, I hope Des, Phill and the guest DJ's have a great night of DJing and keep the floor packed, as I'm sure they will with being great DJ's..... and I also hope everyone attending as a fantastic night....

p.s. Alan it was not me who asked if you did Wigan ,and I have never doubted how long you have been on the scene, so have the guts to write the truth, and please get YOUR facts right

This page is about ACCRINGTON TOWN HALL & Bringing a great new night to the area, so respect that and PM me about anything else. People messaged me that you asked about my Wigan spot, I even joke that it was only 2 records ;-)

NOW PLEASE - ENJOY ACCRINGTON as they have two additional dj's now on !

Sorry, No guest list Pete, as I said it is Hyndburn Council run.

I am only booking the guest dj's for them .  Des Jones & Phil Duckworth are the regualr/ resident dj's and there will be two nationally known guests everytime it is on.

Following the June date the hall is closed and having a major referb ,which when it reopens will have a new bar area and other improvements it will be open before the 4th October Soul Night.

No Dancefloors are being replaced. Only accrington are having a new bar fitted and other building work not effecting the ballroom dancefloor but improving the decor . Friday booking looking great, you can still pay on the door.

Why don't you all act your age and not your shoe size. It's about the passion of northern soul, not about playing baby school. Grow up.

I think everyone had a great time. A big thanks to Alan Barnes for putting this event on.The one in October should be a sell out with the amount of good comments we got from everyone.Some classic oldies and a few sounds that you don't often hear played,made it a night to remember.Well done to all the DJs...As usual i was the last to leave,and even got to end the night with probably the best Motown record ever made...(Four tops-Ask the lonely). It sounded so good in that wonderful room.A near perfect night all round...Thanks to everyone concerned

I am meeting with the council next week and the plan is one more in October then looking ahead four in 2015. A few people have asked about a nighter and although they have a license I don't really want to go down that route but let me know if anyone fancies an alldayer possibly near Christmas or some time in 2015
