This event is now over



Unfortunately the Riverside Room Soul night at the Cleethorpes Pier this Friday 5th Oct is cancelled due to the circumstances revealed below at this late stage, Wednesday 3rd October.

As of 11 am Wednesday 3rd October the Cleethorpes Pier has closed its doors. As a promoter I had a feature in the local Evening Telegraph which came out today Wednesday 3rd October. (See image below).

At 5 30 p.m. the same day I took a copy to show the Pier management, and to my surprise the Pier was being emptied. The manager explained that up until 11 am this morning, bar and door staff had been organised to cover the night, as the manager had full intentions of honouring the event. Unfortunately against all his attempts, he had been ordered to cease trading. I was the first of many customers who this news is being released to.

I wanted to release this information for the benefit of travellers not having to make the journey. Once again this information has only been released to me today Wednesday 3rd October at 5 .30 p.m.

This news is most disappointing for all.

Ian Paling (Payo) Promoter.

That's really disappointing news as I was looking forward to it. Had some fresh new tunes just arrived today that I would have played.

I'll just have to save them 'til Friday 12th October, Heslam Park Rugby Club, Ashby Road, Scunthorpe, DN16 2AG, 7.30 pm til late A night of Modern Soul with a touch of Jazz Funk. Get yourself there Payo and I'll buy you a drink to cheer you up.
