Hello again Everybody
    Just wanted to say a personal thankyou to all the Team for their crackin' spots you were all awesome on Saturday. Not forgetting the "Ladies" on the door Jackie & Miss T, nice one Girls.
    A big big thankyou to Tony "Ado" Adamson who took over the decks at 10:30 (after a "great" spot by Russ) & totaly controled the dance floor for the next hour. People danced to every record, blended his tunes perfectly, with loads of club classics & a few of the Scene's currant top sounds, every one a dancer. The Jay Wiggins "My Lonely Girl" was superb & Lady Lady Lady (which I have'nt heard for ages) went down a treat.... Great fantastic spot Tony, showed us how it's done Pal.
  Last but by no means least, thanks a again to everyone old & new who came along to support us, fantastic turnout. Loads of new faces coming along again (one or two who've now become regulars), great to meet the nice people who traveled all the way from Sheffild & friends Nigel & Roger from work, glad you all had a good night, thanks for the brilliant support.
  Next month we're joined by special guest DJ "Keith Barna", from That Beatin' Rhythum Soul Club,Harborough Hills, Barnsley & who also does a Soul Show on "Radio Pennistone".
 Cheers Guys, see all out & about in the weekends to come, Woody & Miss T & all the Gang

P.S. Few photo's to follow as soon as we get them sorted......

Welcome to the ***THE CORNER POCKET AT THE MAJESTIC SUITE - MEXBOROUGH *** Comments sectiom

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

Hi everyone,

Well due to a technical problem with Woody and Miss T's computer i taken on the job of posting August's event here at The Corner Pocket, so just to let you know that myself and the team will be back as usual on the 15th August (the 3rd Saturday of the month)

And as always bringing you a night of truly across the board Northern Soul, Motown and R&B music (and perhaps even a touch of classy popcorn soul as well) so watch this space for more details.

So remember to make a date in your diary for the 15th at The Corner Pocket here in Mexborough, a great venue with excllent bar prices and a chance to hear all your favourite tunes.

With a 100% dance floor driven music policy!

Hi everyone,

Woody informs me that our August event at The Corner Pocket is already getting a lot of positive interest via Facebook and calls received to him and Miss T (sadly his computer is still not fully up and running so it looks like you'll be getting me for a little longer folks)

So you if you want to hear all you favourite tunes from you old soul days and plenty more besides, remember the 15th August (and every 3rd Saturday of the month) here at

Nice to see you've popped your avatar on here Woody, I was starting to get a little lonely.

Well here in the Steel City (student city might be more apt now) we"re in full swing for the Tramlines music festival and I can hear blasting away what sounds like noise I believe it to be thrash metal whatever that is and for those of you who haven't experienced it imagine the noise of having you appendix removed with a chainsaw....that's thrash metal! 

We've got another two days to go after this one....without swearing I'm really quite lost for words to how bad the stuff I'm hearing sounds.....or am I just getting old?

Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to report that as well as Woody, Derek "G" and my good self our special guest DJ for the night is Mr Tony "Ado" Adams who has made a very welcome return back to The Corner Pocket for his second main spot here.

Tony has amassed a quality record collection over the years and his knowledge of the soul scene and rare vinyl is impressive to say the least and like all the team here he is fully dedicated to a 100% dance floor driven music policy so as we always say here at The Pocket,

                "Remember to bring your dancing shoes, you're gonna need 'em"

Ah well, now getting used to the site again I can get on here a little more, :)  still post lots of drivell though  :D

Just a pointer to people that haven't been before but seen the pics and videos of the place, it's a totally isolated downstairs venue with it's own bar and an atmosphere of it's own, the room is a lot darker than it appears in the videos and pictures, come see what we got.  :thumbsup:

Well said Tony,

The Corner Pocket is a pretty impressive venue and i must agree is far darker and more atmospheric than some of the pictures posted might lead you to believe and although we don't seem to mention this much, what i personally think is a top notch sound system (and vinyl played out with plenty of deep bass like these records were intended to sound like when first recorded) and make no doubt this is a great dancers venue!

Talking of dancers i'm sure you'll be packing some classy 70's spins (perhaps J.J Callier's "Pusher Man"?) being popped into that box of yours

don't forget Saturday the 15th of next month (8:00pm while 1:00am) we're at it again down here at "The Corner Pocket" in swinging down town Mexborough, Northern Soul, Motown & RnB at it's very best, "only a couple of weeks now Folks" & time is definately flying by, over half a years gone already.
Take care Everybody, see you there Folks, Woody, Miss T & all the Gang

Where has the time gone indeed Woody?

and on the subject of time The Corner Pocket can't be that far away from celebrating it's first birthday or is that just me....or is time flying really as fast as that? 

So not that long to go now till the 15th, i've cut down a little on the record buying in the last few weeks as i seem to have replaced quite a lot of my favourite plays that were not up to sound quality standard with replacement copies (too be honest i don't think it fair to play a almost worn out record on good quality decks and no it's not great to hear pops, clicks and the odd jump when your favourite disc is playing)

So one or two new plays in the box that might get an outing, and as always it's sure to be a great night.

Hello again Everybody,
can't tell you how much Me & Miss T are looking forward to Saturday the 15th of this month, gonna be "great". Looking forward to seeing "Ado", top Guy behind the decks who's built up an awesome collection over the last few years.
Ado's like us totaly A.T.B with a brilliant original vinyl collection, so I'm sure they'll be a few surprises in the "Old Magic Box" as well as the Club Classics, Seventies winners & Current spins.
Don't forget, we kick off at 8:00pm playing the best sounds around..... (forget Wetherspoons)"Very Cheap Bar" while 12:30am (Room & Dancing while 1:00am), so as Russ says "Bring Your Dancing Shoes".......

Hi woody,

I must mention this more often but The Corner Pocket really does have a great cheap bar (and even cheaper than many WMC prices) so yet another reason to head for those bright lights of downtown Mexborough on the 15th.

Great post there Tony,

And nice to learn a little bit about The Corner Pockets soul pedigree and even Kim Weston appearing live there as well, i have a great family story about my father and a female member of a classic soul group but that's perhaps for another time.

Evening all,

Just looking at the admission prices for The Corner Pocket (both stating £3) i'm not sure on the second flyer that Woody has posted but the first one from Tony is from way back in 2003 and a full 12 years later the price to get in is still the same now there can't be many other things that have stayed the same price for all that time (i can tell you that prices for vinyl records haven't)

Oh and here's yet another reason to make your way to Mexbrough's finest (if you need another reason is) are the fantastic bar prices, remember the average price for a pint of bitter is £3.30 but here at The Corner Pocket all bar prices are at least on par with WWC's and often cheaper, so if you want a great night out that's not going to break the bank look no further, a top venue, with a pure 100% dance floor driven music policy and of course you won't need to be thirsty.

ok as after this request have seen stuff such as cartoon images and all the rest continued to be posted then feel there is a need for action.

 

The over use of images and ott promotion does damage both the site and this event guide feature

As such have given members warnings about their actions on here so they are aware of this

This sort of repeated ott promotion by 'promoters' and' djs' is simply not wanted on here
