As a massive thank you to all those who have supported Marcelle & Chris over the years or to those who want to come along for the first time, entry will be FREE.

The Kenwood Suite will return for the final night alongside the Elizabethan Suite.  Top Djs in both rooms will mean there will be something for everyone, big all-nighter sounds downstairs and something a little different maybe upstairs, split for choice!

Total respect for what they have achieved over the years.  I've been lucky enough to have attended most of the above mentioned  apart from the London and Birmingham ones. Chris and Marcelle have become more than promoters,  they have become firm friends and it was a privilege to be invited to help them celebrate there wedding.  Wishing you both everything you want away from the promotional side of the soul scene.
