Event Information

Hi everyone and welcome to the next Banbury Soul Club event of 2014.
This is our first event after our summer break and as usual it is our Annual Oldies night.

Saturday 27th September 2014 - 8pm - 1am.
General Foods Sports and Social Club.
Castle Quays
OX16 2PA

Pay on the door is still only £5.00 and as always the emphasis is on quality and enjoyment.

We always aim to have two guest DJ's at every Banbury Soul Club event. But this night is an exception.
There are five guest DJ’s and the three residents.
The intention is to keep it fresh and hear a variety of different tunes from the guests.
This month's musical extravaganza is no exception to that rule.

Our guests are Tezz, Gilko, Kev and myself (Tabs) either double decking or doing a solo spot.

And our headline DJ is none other than Mark (Fluff) Freeman.
I’m sure Mark needs no introduction.
One of the Premier ‘Oldie’ DJ’s in the UK.
Mark has an impressive CV including his own highly successful Nuneaton Co-op niters, Blackpool Tower and Prestatyn weekenders to name just three.

However don’t be misled into thinking this will be the usual top 500 oldies night.
This is Oldies “Banbury” style.
Now I have no idea what the other DJ’s will play but here is an example of a totally forgotten oldie that I’ll be spinning.
A late Wigan spin but an oldie none the less.

So hopefully that will give you an idea that it won’t be the same old same old all night.

The guests will be complimented by the residents, Tom, Steve and Charlie.
All long term collectors and everything played on ovo only.

So again we would like to think that BSC have provided complimentary DJ's covering the whole spectrum of soul for dancers.
But don't take our word for it, come along and experience it for yourselves.

For those that haven’t been before this really is a superb venue.
An upstairs ballroom with a sprung wooden floor and a raised stage.
A separate bar area which is fully stocked and at club prices.
Comfortable seating and also plenty of space for record dealers.
(No charge for Sales tables at our venue)
Free parking just a few minutes' walk away.

Please respect their policy as we don't want to lose this venue after waiting years to obtain it.

And I hope the attached picture shows it is a highly polished floor so talc shouldn't really be required.
Anyway hope to see you all on Saturday 27th September 2014.

Admission is still just £5.

All looking good for the 27th, with a host of local DJs spinning their wares, with Mark Freeman & Tezz looking forward to their set as usual,


Although Dave Gilkes can't make this one, he doubled booked with the Skegness weekender, but will be double decking with me in November

Record sellers still very much welcomed, and for free at Banbury

See you all soon

Well folks.  Banbury's summer break is over.  We're all really looking forward to the start of the season, so they say!  And as always, we're starting off with our big Oldie's Nite - Banbury style. 


Very pleased to welcome back, Mark 'Fluff' Freeman.  Mark as you know runs the big Nuneaton Oldies Alnighter.  Very successful.

Mark, will be enthusticasly backed by all of us - Tezz, Tom, Charlie, Kev, Steve, and Tabs.........


The night starts at 8.00 pm.  And we will be blasting out the tunes from 8.01 pm until it finishes. 

So looking forward to meeting friends, old and new, at Banbury on 27 September.

Record sellers welcome of course.

Plenty of seating, large sprung wooden dancefloor.  Fully loaded bar.  Free parking.

And of course, some cracking tunes.


Keep dancing

I love surprises.  Just what you need on an Oldies night.

Don't let the secret out though.

Big thanks to everybody - excellent turnout considering how many events were on. 


Great first set by Tezz.  Followed by another quality set from Kev Berry.  Then 'Fluff' (Mark Freeman) did what he does best and smashed out the tunes.  With us residents, dipping in between the guests. 


As we said, it was our 'oldies' night.  So it was nice to listen to a lot of the tunes that we grew up with.  Really enjoyed it.


Hopefully, see you all on Saturday 29 November, on our '11th' Anniversary do.

Was a very good event on Saturday. 

Guest DJ's Tez , Kev & Mark kept the dance floor busy with their distinctive sets.

Residents know what's needed AND provided it.

So many great people there with big smiley faces. 

Cannot wait for the 11th Anniversary now at the end of November.

Guest DJ = John Manship.


Cheers....................             Tom.
