Crackin first night for us at Bilsthorpe welfare. 

The Djs kept the dancefloor well busy and the room itself was busy.

Was up dancing most of the night and even had the local " muppet show " entertainment for good measure ;) 

Did overhear a comment in the ladies " I havent heard a single tune I know" 

At which I was stifling my laughing behind the loo door 

Well done guys see you in Novevember unless you decide to do a sooner one

Regards Mand

Thanks to all concerned for a good night. I thought the civilians might spoil it a bit but it was quite interesting to see how other people enjoyed themselves! I don't want to sound like a "Moanin'' B" but I think it's a bit over-priced: North Wings, £3.50; Grosvenor £4.00; Forest Town £3.00 etc, etc, and I can't see why there's any need at all for per-booked tickets! It was the £5 charge that killed The Shed at Beeston. Apart from that you played all my stuff so thanks.

Appreciate the feedback re cost so for the next event we are introducing early bird b4 9 at lower price and abolishing tickets more info nearer the date.

Once again we appreciate all the people who came along,The ticket was to try and gauge how many locals there would be in attendance so that we could cater for all dancers ,but in the end it was a good all round dance night.see you somewhere soon
