After Our first successful year of 2012 we start of with celebrating our first anniversary night for 2013.

A big thank you for 2012 to every one who supported our venue, all the DJs and all our soul family who traveled from all over the country, and all our local soulies we could`nt have done it without you, you know who you are, thank you.

With only four a year we try to keep it special, we play 100% Northern soul with a 100% passion, on 100% vinyl.

Festival hall is a 1920s art deco ballroom, with a balcony & large sprung wooden dance floor, and a second elevated dance floor, plenty of seating, large separate bar area with plenty of seating for chilling out, also tables for record sales, good bar prices, also has its own large free car park. A truly fantastic venue, come and see for yourself.Take a look at some past comments from our night in December

Getting a buzz for this. Proper venue playing quality Music. Run by some fantastic guys ( and Gals ) that obviously know what they are talking about, should be because they've been doing this since Adam was a lad ( Adam Jenkinson that is and he's an old bast*rd !!)

Get you Dancing Shoes Polished and your Talc Bottle topped up.

See you all 'Dancing On The Edge'

Thinking about going to this.... any chance of elaborating on the music policy a little?..

 

Ta.

Share this comment

The music policy is 100% northern soul, aimed at the dancer, every thing from classic oldies, not much modern, 100 mph, to everything else. music from wigan, torch, mecca, catacombes, samanthats, blazers,and everywhere in between.

 

And mary love is in there to.

 

hope that helps.

Warming up at Horwich,then hitting the dance floor to these two.

Plus the resident DJ's,who if they play their cards right will be joining them in the "GOTCHA" files.  

LOL. The M & Ms (and of course Alan & Tosh).

What a fantastic night we had on The Edge.  Again, some quality music passed through the Speakers and appreciated by a hungry dance floor. Thanks to the Guys ( and Girls of course ) for allowing me to play for you, had a great time.  Had a bit of a Barry White voice going on but managed to get through OK.Nice to chat with Mr Evison about old times and such.   With Ian, Steve and Paul playing the stuff it was a great night - Wanted in 3 States my fav track and again filled the floor as that kind of quality should.  Looking forward to the next one already with Ian and Carl on flying the East Mids flag.

Take care and see you, on a floor, near you, real soon.

Thanks Tezza, think the splits is now becoming my signature move, glad you liked the larry clinton, got to admit one of my favorite tunes, been after it for ages, managed to get a copy  last month just in time to play it  on the night, great play list tezza as always, see you in your home town at Chestefield winding wheel on the 23 March.

Had a good time here, will definitely be going again. Lovely venue, such a friendly crowd and met some old friends we haven't seen for ages.

 

Stayed in Alderley Edge Hotel, so could walk there and back, nice hotel, can definitely recommend it.

 

Great photos as well : )
