As Chalky states, nearest train station is Longton about 10 minutes walk away.

Stoke station is about 5 miles away.

 

Looks set to be a great night.......

Anymore record dealers wishing to reserve a table shout up.  Feedback for the night has been really positive so space could be at a premium.

Both rooms have their own entrance from the car park (entrance doors are next to each other)...... so admission can be paid at either entrance and then purchased wristband will then permit admission into both rooms.

A top line-up of DJs playing the best music that either scene has to offer....all for a tenner!

Less than a week to go!  Two clubs with one aim....to bring you the very best both clubs have to offer.   Many remember how Bidds used to look but the venue really does look the business now.

This Saturday folks....looks like there is gonna be very healthy support for both rooms.......reckon a few folk will also be flitting back and forth between rooms to get a taste of everything on offer!

 

Don't forget, the Pow Wow room opens an hour later than Lifeline in the main room, but if you turn up early you can pay into main room and go into either room as and when.......probably a good idea if you are attending for the Pow Wow Club but also want to check out any sales boxes in main room...

After rather a horrible week I was hoping that Lifeline would raise my spirits, and it did.

 

I'd never been to Bidds before, and some of the comments I'd heard about it were derogatory. However since its refurbishment it seems a good home for Lifeline; a working man's / social club, with a good dance floor, ideal for a Northern Soul nighter. And the sound was okay too.

 

I must thank Danny who picked me up at Wellingborough station (and of course John McClure who arranged it). After picking up Terry and Jan we sped up to Stoke and Bidds.

 

The night seemed to fly by, which some nighters don't. The music was of a high quality, a good mix with medium tempo tunes interspersed with the fast ones. Sadly Soul Sam was unwell and Butch couldn't make it, but the two guests, Joel Maslin and Matt Sneath were worthy stand ins. I think of the latter's set I only knew one record, it would be nice to see a playlist. They kept the dance floor busy, and it was busy for nearly all the night.

 

The regulars, Chalky, Andy Dyson, Cliff Steele and Mick H did the business as usual, thank to Mick for playing Pee Wee, Shucks & Huey, one of my favourites. And plenty of them were included in the sets, got me out dancing. I couldn't dance as much as I'd have liked to but as the saying goes the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

 

It was a great idea to combine the night with the Pow Wow Club. I went in there a couple of times and enjoyed the music very much. Pity you can't split yourself in two to be in both rooms at once.

 

As usual the social side of the night was very good. Nice to see friends from all over the country, all united by a love of good soul music.

 

Looks like Lifeline found another good home, thanks to Andy, Mick et al, and the staff of Bidds.
