Latest news on the upcoming Newquay Weekender from Neil Rushton
Everything looking good for the 4th Newquay Weekender from April 3 to 6.
When we started the event we hoped the combination of Cornwall and Soul Music would result in something different from the other Weekenders and that has certainly proved the case. It's not the biggest or brashest Weekender but it is small and friendly - - everyone seems to spend the weekend smiling
The music is always diverse (if you are looking for the same old, same old, you won't get it here) and uplifting.A lot of people take advantage of the suroundings to go out exploring Cornwall in the day and come back well up for the evening sessions.So far we have always enjoyed great weather. The DJ's love the event - Mick H is getting as many of his crowd as he can to make the trek down here - and they all play what they want, without any guidelines from the promoters.
Thursday night is an open decks night, anyone who wants to play should PM me.
As usual the music is at The Griffin Hotel with the Northern/Rare side of things downstairs in the (very) atmospheric cellar bar and there is an alternative room upsairs which over the weekend will feature everything from Crossover, Modern Soul, Classic Disco, Jazz-Funk and Soulful House.
Weekend passes are £20 each.
This time around we are also taking over the nearby Cliffdene Hotel for accomodation.
Bed, breakfast and dinner for Friday and Saturay, with weekend pass included, is £99 which we think is great value for money.You can book securely on line or by post.
