Oddfellows Reunion - Leicester 25th May 2014

Oddfellows Reunion - Leicester 25th May 2014 magazine cover

Just wanted to let you all know there is an Oddfellows reunion booked in Leicester at the original Nottingham Oddfellows Club venue that the nighters were held at in the 1980's.

 

The date is bank holiday Sunday May 25th 2014, and it will run from 8pm - 2am in 3 rooms (although we are trying to start from 5pm - to allow everybody to catch up early doors but are waiting to have that confirmed.)

 

To date 6 original DJ's are booked with a little bit more to do in that area. Finalised details will be posted up soon regarding tickets and confirmed times etc. The challenge will be to connect with all of the guys who used to attend and make them aware of the event as the numbers allowed in by the club are a lot less than what I expect will want to attend.

 

I will update S.S. over the next week or so, but please PM me, email me; ally.mayer@pyrint.com or call 07971 596679, if you have any questions, regards

 

Ally Mayer

It's a great shame about this as a lot of us were coming but fancy putting this on while Skegness weekender is on at the same time . Most of the folk that would have come will be in Skeggy , A great shame ans possible missed oppertunity , regards Simon.

Hi Simon - As chalky said Skeggy is the month before. The difficulty in putting anything on these days is trying not to clash with other venues but with this event it is more important to accept an available date to secure the original venue and to try and plan this to have the least impact against the soul calendar. I think that the date we have chosen is great for people (and there are a lot already) who will be making long distance travel/hotel arrangements without the worry of work the following day. The challenge we will have is to make sure we touch base with a lot of the regulars who attended in the 80's to ensure they get a ticket as already I have been inundated with requests for tickets and talk of mini buses etc. More info to post over the next week or so. Ally

Hi Steve, can you PM me your contact details as it would be great to get you/Alan and any of the other guys who used to frequent The Oddfellows in the day back down for the reunion? May be an opportunity for a DJ spot - I know Tony has been trying to touch base with you. Venue has hardy changed so it will be like going back in time.
