6TS: Then there was Jack's - March 10th Allnighter

 

So after 25 years plus of 6TS dances down the famous Oxford Street stairs of the 100 Club, we are upping our decks and travelling south of the river to Jack's at London Bridge. The inaugural Jack's nighter is on Saturday March 10th from 10pm-7am at 7-9, Crucifix Lane, London SE1. Membership is not strictly required though we will be carrying on with the scheme to keep it family and to give us an excuse to turn undesirables away. If you or a friend don't have a card you'll get in anyway unless you're too drunk or can't name a Northern Soul nightclub once in Wigan. For the first night we have the massed ranks of the Tower DJ Kru - Andy Brazil, MC Donna and Bad Boy Kenny to warm you suckers up. Then on the stroke of midnight Mick Smith will usher in a new era of 6TS sounds at Jack's, closely followed by Butch, myself, guest DJ Dave Abbott and last minute super-sub James Trouble (Keith Money has been detained in auld Aberdeen). We'll keep you entertained until 7am when you can head for the trains, tubes, Triumph Heralds or taxis or simply dive into the welcoming waters of the nearby Thames. I popped down to Jack's a couple of Saturdays ago to check out the place in the daytime and it really is a great venue. We're going to use the big spare room for over-spill, record dealers, chilling out and nervous breakdowns. Eventually we might make it an alternate room, but that will depend on numbers and whether we want to split the crowd or not. London Bridge station is on mainlines from all over the South East and if you're down from the North just hop on the Northern Line at Euston or Kings Cross (City Branch NOT Charing Cross Branch). The Jubilee line is the quickest from the West End (Bond St or Green Park tubes). Folks from the West could get a barge from Henley and Eastenders will probably just hijack a minicab. When you come out of the station head for the London Bridge or Tooley St exit, not the Borough High St exit. Turn right into Tooley St and walk past The London Dungeon, then go past the Britain At War exhibition centre, keep on past the Shipwrights pub on the right (or perhaps meet your chums there), you'll see the modern glass-built Unicorn theatre on the left and turn right into Shand St opposite the theatre. Go under the arches and Jack's entrance is just the other side, it sounds long but is only an eight minute walk. The local borough is a lot more laid back than Westminster and the owner Johnny says you can easily park around the place at the weekend, most people do it on single or double lines and he's never seen anyone get nicked. We'll have a cloakroom, two all night bars and the smiling faces of our 6TS staff to make you feel at home. Specific queries E-mail me on ady.croasdell@btinternet.com and we'll put info and news up on www.6ts.info from time to time. The month after, on April 14th, we're back at the 100 Club for the new 9pm-6am sessions and then we alternate the dates throughout the year so it's 10th Mar, 19th May, 18th Aug, 27th Oct (the 1st Sat in Nov was booked) at Jack's and 14th April, 7th July, 22nd Sept and Dec 1st at the 100 Club. So with the new sociable hours, there's no excuse for anyone to miss out on the rebirth of the 6TS rare&Northern soul experience. Be there at the start of something beautiful. Ady
