Cream Cracker Soul Club 7th Anniversary on
This event is now over
Ok I know its another venue change,my apologies for that, but the one at Burton Latimer was getting unsustainable for many reasons. Having spent many hours trying to find a venue for the Cream Cracker with all the attributes required. Karen, thankfully has found a real belter for us to hopefully settle in. The venue is tucked away behind some residential homes on Rockingham Road in Corby Northants. There is a massive carpark surrounding the complex. The toilets are clean and large so no queueing. The hall itself is a geat big un with a marvellous sprung wooden floor that has had many many years of dancing upon it so its good and slippy, with a carpeted area around it for adequate tables and chairs.The entry corridor is very well lit, wide and more than spacious enough for sellers. There is a bar area adjacent to the main hall, seperated by a windowed and doored wall which is decked out with tables and chairs. The venue has speakers mounted in each corner of the main hall and once I have mastered how to connect them up to my existing equipment it'll no doubt enhance the listening and dancing pleasure. I have managed to keep the hire cost down and procure a 2.30am finish with the bar till 2am, so entry will still only be £5, which has hopefully got to be good value for money. The nights will run from 8pm to 2.30am so for the same entry amount we're getting and an extra 30 minutes dancing, which also means we can probably get another guest on each night. The beer prices are £2.70 for bitter and £2.90 for lager which aint bad compared to many other places. The main room with all lights out is perfect for dancing as the lights from the bar area cast just enough light through the windows to set the mood without impeaching.
The Elizabeth Hotel is just up the road from the venue and I am going to meet with the management there to obtain a discounted price for rooms for anyone travelling.
I promise this is the last move for The Cream Cracker, In all honesty I wish I'd moved to this one when The Football Club in Rothwell went bust.
But at the end of the day its up to the Jacobs, I'll put everything in place and hopefully we can continue with the Cream Cracker Soul Club. No change on the music format.
