Down in the Basement- The Belgians + Hilary's 60th on

This event is now over

Down in the Basement (DITB) - Rhythm & Soul Club

@ The Hope Cellar Bar

226 Eccles Old Road


M6 8AG

8pm - 1.30am

£5 Admission

Our little club is extremely honoured to be presenting, the TM Club's (Belgium's premier Popcorn establishment) famous DJ team

of Franco, Michael and Toto.

Their reputation proceeds them and Im sure they will create a real party atmosphere.

If you have been to a popcorn night before you know what to expect and if you haven't you don't know what you're missing.

This will be definately one of the major highlights in the UK's R&B/soul/mod calendar.

Our venue certainly is definitely the venue to deliver the goods in a fantastic basement club.

So we at DOWN IN THE BASEMENT, are hoping to entice you to our ++++TM CLUB SPECIAL+++ WITH *** FRANCO MICHEL AND TOTO****


We are hoping to give them a great British welcome from their journey over from Belgium with a number of their friends.

We are on from 8pm til 1.30 at least to make the most of enjoying the boys slant on things, with TM Club favourites and popcorn


It's taking place on Saturday 27th October 2012. If you'd like to come please contact us through our club page, or the telephone

numbers on the flyer.

We're hoping to show them what a great party atmosphere the UK has to offer but cant do it without you.

So please consider adding us to your diary in october, and buying or reserving your tickets as soon as possible.

We look forward to hearing from you Steve and Mike.

You would be a fool to miss it !!!!!

Presume this will be one 'L' of a night.

Talking of the letter 'L' it might be a good idea to stick one in your thread title and spell 'Belgian' correctly....

You spelled 'L' wrong, it's spelled 'Hell'

Hope you had a great night,we're really disappointed we couldn't make this one but unfortunately the Spa was running the same night.Hopefully we can sort this problem out in future.Must say what you've done is taking the RnB scene forward here.Hope to get over in November or December.

Best regards all at the Spa

Well finally recovering from weekend

What a great Saturday night we had in our little club

Top sounds with absolutely fantastic DJs playing awesome tunes , what more could we want

Dance floor was busy all night and I'm sure there will be lots of pictures posted up soon

I would really like to thank Michel, Toto and Franco not only for their fantastic tunes but also for the friendliness, warmth and hospitality of everyone that had travelled over from Belgium, Anita and I felt honoured to be in your company. Thank you each and every one of you :-)

We will definitely be coming over to Belgium for your next party

Thanks to everyone that came, Im sure everyone had a great time and all the birthday cakes had been eaten by the end of the night, so Anita's baking must be ok !!!

Apologies for the cock up with the bar but the the pub is just changing management so the late licence hadnt been applied for, should be sorted out soon

Look forward to seeing the piccies soon :-)
