North Lancs Soul Festival Weekender on
The 5th North Lancs Soul Festival will take place on 20th, 21st & 22nd May 2011 in Morecambe, Lancashire.
The full weekend Festival programme is nearing its final structure though I can tell you at this time that the Festival will mostly be based at Smokey O'Connor's utilising their 3 rooms across the weekend, although there are still some further programme options being considered.
As in previous years, the weekend Festival will be advertised and run as a Free Festival, holding the concept and ethos of our unique Festival intact; so we will continue with a free door policy to access the entertainment at Smokey's, making this a superb weekend "celebration of soul".
Promotion of the festival to the general public will be launched at the end of the month which will include poster / flyer design by Roger Williams along with a new stand-alone website which is currently under construction.
We will officially kick off the Festival at 2pm on Friday 20th at Smokey's right through until late on Sunday 22nd May.
In an addition for this year and in conjunction with the Festival, I've arranged for The Platform (Morecambe's entertainment venue) to host Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band on the Saturday night at 8pm.
This is not an official Festival event and therefore not a free event, however for those who are attending the Festival and who also wish to attend this event, I have arranged for discounted tickets to be available and you will be able to purchase your discounted tickets over the phone with a "unique purchase code" that will be posted on this thread within in the next few days.
Festival DJ's will be attending from all across the UK for the weekend, and with more names to follow already confirmed for the event include (in no particular order);
Wakefield City Soul Club
Bob "The Crate" Smith
Seaside Soul Club
Grange Soul - Darlington
