A busy Bank holiday weekend for us, but this event was "marked up" on the calendar for months in advance with eager anticipation. As soon as Chris told me New Century had secured Bury Town Hall for it future all-nighters I knew it would be the perfect venue.

I don't get out into Lancashire often enough, so it was fantastic to hook up with people I only chant with via the Internet. The main room has a fantastic feel to it, just the right size, with the added bonus of the balcony to the Record Bar / refreshment area upstairs. Nice to see John Philips spinning a few tunes, always good to see him back in the UK, Andy Dyson followed on keeping the dance floor full. However the earlier spot by Mick "Coops" Cooper was a gem, featuring many Cleethorpes records that don't get airtime often enough!

The rare room was chock a block, superb sounds every time we were in there and Shifty was on top form said hello to so many old mates too, fantastic !

The third room, loosely called modern, featured several DJs in the mix, heavy beat house seemed to be the order of the day, with a smattering of Latin Jazz grooves, not really my bag, but it was busy with an appreciative crowd in there and a nice sized room.

Great Venue, Great professional promotion with attention to detail.

We will be back !

Welcome back New Century Soul. :thumbup:Over 300 people from as far apart as Scotland, Norfolk. The West Country. Wales and everywhere in between is a testament to the anticipation that awaited the return of the legendary nighters. And I don't think people where disappointed, not from everyone that I spoke with. And that was a lot, believe me :lol: Spent time in all three music rooms, record bar and surprise, surprise the foyer/ outside area. From a personal perspective the move from Radcliffe should have happened a few year's ago. Bury town hall is the perfect venue size wise, large enough to cope but small enough to create a intimate atmosphere. Thanks to everyone who was involved for making last night possible :hatsoff2::hatsoff2:

For me it's worth the trip just to hear Flash McKinley played out.  My all-time top favourite record.  A real Preston cybermen tune ! :)

ROBBOS' SPINS FOR NCS BURY

Whilst out together over the weekend I asked Robbo if he had any ideas for spins at Bury, he looked quite serious and thoughtful for a few seconds then said he'd probably open with:

Lonnie Donigan | Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour | DOT (Demo)

Folowed by:

Bernard Cribbins | The Hole in the Ground | HMV (British Issue)

I should've know better I guess lol

:D

Right, after being ‘racked with guilt’ after saying I don’t really like seeing play lists nowadays because I think a record is for ‘the moment’, and one can’t tell if a night is any good or not by play lists alone (no offence to anyone that does of course, that’s just me), I thought why not? Some people appreciate them / even find them interesting! :D So, here are a few I’d like to share on the night (If ‘fitting’ at 3.00am) :wink:

Dream Team - There He Is - Gregory Records

Silky Hargraves - I’ll Keep On Trying - Unissued version

Chubby and The Turnpikes - The Inside Story - Capitol

The Softiques - Two Kinds Of Boys - Sheldon

Sonny Craver - I’m No Fool - Teri De

The Embers - First Time - JCP

Here’s to a good night :wink:

All the best,

Len :thumbsup:

Great new venue as Radcliffe had run it's course and wasn't helped with unfortunate timing coinciding with flood and snow on 2015 events.

It's a shame to loose some of the funk edged/upfront jocks from room 2 but Bob and Robbo always played great sets when they were in room 2

Always great to see John Phillips when he's over here and Andy Dyson returning to the main room.

I'm sure it will be a great turnout Bury is far more accessible for most and am looking forward to it.

Good luck with the venue Chris & Marcelle, unfortunately I cant be there for the first event, but will be up as soon as I possibly can be....BTW how in gods name did you get Shifty...we've lost touch a little in recent years, but love that bloke, I hope he's now sweating like a Royal Marine doing a Maths test getting his playbox in order lol...because expectation will be high for sure....also, I hope this heralds a return to the wheels of steel for a thoroughly nice bloke, DJ & recorder provider.

Shiftys playlist (Kenwood Suite)

No official news from the man yet but he has threatened to post a few potential plays - maybe Russ is right and he's sweating like a marine taking a math exam?? Must be a reference to Russ's personal experience ?

I do know that Shifty could put up a real challenge to Robbo as I've seen his triangle picture disc of Ernie by By Benny Hill

Hi All
Just a quick update with parking information around our new venue.
There is off road free car parking available on Knowsley Street which is down the side of the venue, also across the road on Manchester Street which is pay and display but is free after 6pm Saturday till 8am Sunday. There is secure multi storey car parking under the Premier Inn on Duke Street which is off Knowsley Street and is £4.00 for all night at weekends.
*Parking Warning*
There is also a car park across the road at Bury tram station, but I would advise you stay clear of that as it is for tram customers only and as the trams stop at 12am and start again at 7am then you may be liable for a fine ( you have been warned)

We have been contacted by GMP and we have agreed that there will be NO entrance after 3am, this is to fall in line with the licensing for the rest of Bury Town Centre
look forward to seeing some of you on the 28th

The third room – On the 28th this room at  Burt Town Hall will become a club within a club; dark walls, dancing lights and a deep driving baseline will invite you to Stomp, Shuffle, Shout and Sing as soulful, jazzy rhythms tempt you to lose yourself and move your body to a different vibe. Soulful House, mixed with Nu Funk, mixed with twisted disco, all mixed with love from DJ’s who’s’ knowledge and soul come deep from the clubs from the North West. Paul Hawkins, Pete Haigh, Tony Cooney, Mark Grice and Baz Maleady, come together with special guests to show the spirit of Bradford Modern Room lives on, the Spirit of Morecambe Modern Room lives on, the Spirit of Lowton Modern Room lives on, the Spirit of the Mecca lives on, BUT this is Somethin' Else!

Saturday 28th May sees the return of the NCS All-Nighters to Manchester at the superb new venue, Bury Town Hall. NCS under the guidance of Chris Waterman has always strived to bring the best of the scene together in their events, the best DJ’s, the best venues, the best dancefloors, the best sound and most of all the best people. This new event will be no exception!
With a choice of three rooms as well as a dedicated bar and record dealer area on the first floor of this fantastic venue there is sure to be something for everyone.
The main room, the Elizabethan suite is an imposing hall a large wooden dancefloor is surrounded by seating, a balcony area with a large stage at the front. The acoustics are superb as is the sound system, so you will hear all your favourite Northern sounds loud and clear.
DJ’s on the night Andy Dyson, Calvin Lee Hughes, Dick Krop, Andy Garside, Mick Cooper, John Phillips, Owen'Monica'Bolton and Colin James have all been hand-picked to showcase a range of sounds and styles encompassing all that’s great about the music we love between the hours of 9pm Saturday till 7am Sunday morning
The second room, The Kenwood Suite, a cool room with its own ambiance. The focus is on the centrally placed dancefloor, surrounded by a superb sound system of its own, the music in this room will be a mix of styles from the rare, not so rare, underplayed but just sooo good. Between the hours of 10pm Saturday and 5am Sunday DJ’s Robbo, Bob Hinsley, Lenny Dopson, Paul Johnson, Simon Ingham and special guest, collector, DJ and record dealer, Shifty, will endeavour to tempt you to the dancefloor with aural delights from the 60’s and 70’s – this could be worth the admission fee in value itself.
The third room – On the May 28th this room at the NCS All-Nighter at Bury Town Hall will become a club within a club; dark walls, dancing lights and a deep driving baseline will invite you to Stomp, Shuffle, Shout and Sing as soulful, jazzy rhythms tempt you to lose yourself and move your body to a different vibe. Soulful House, mixed with Nu Funk, mixed with twisted disco, all mixed with love from DJ’s who’s’ knowledge and soul come deep from the clubs from the North West. Paul Hawkins, Pete Haigh, Tony Cooney, Mark Grice and Baz Maleady, come together with special guests to show the spirit of Bradford Modern Room lives on, the Spirit of Morecambe Modern Room lives on, the Spirit of Lowton Modern Room lives on and the Spirit of the Mecca lives on, BUT this is Somethin' Else!

Anyway had a great night at Bury and it delivered on  the venue ,crowd and just the buzz a brilliant success for Chris and Marcelle who deserve it more than anyone.

It's always great to see a venue give the young'ens a chance for big room experience to encourage the new generation and their friends etc. and this should be applauded.

Mainly oldies apart from the odd tune. Some great quality oldies I hadn't heard  for a while so that was refreshing in a strange way.Shifty, Bob and Simon played a few decent ones in room 2 as did John Phillips,Dick Crop and Colin James in the main room and above all Andy Dyson shone out with a brilliant mixed  set.
