Mecca Memories on

This event is now over

Here we go again The Blackpool Mecca Appreciation Society returns to The Samlesbury Hotel Preston, for our annual celebration of all things Highland Room. The music as usual picks up during this exciting period of change so expect everything from The Carstairs Marvin Holmes through to Roy Ayers and Brass Construction and everything in between.

Bring your dancing shoes as the action starts at 8pm until 2am.

The Dj's Colin Curtis Pete Haigh Andy Lett and Steve Naylor are all of course blessed with a unique passion for this incredible period of music that formed the soundtrack to a lot of our lives !

They all play from the heart to reproduce the best music from those halcyon days.

Don't forget the great new refurbished hotel too, so don't hesitate to book a room and join us for what will be a very special night.

This hotel has been beautifully decorated, modern, clean and fresh, with a special discounted price of £55.00 for double/twin inclusive of breakfast. Say you are with the Mecca night for discounted rate, when booking direct with the hotel. (Booking direct is the only way to book btw!)

Please check booking.com for hotels nearby The Samlesbury as this hotel has now sold out!! The Holiday Inn Express on booking.com is £44.00 per room per night, including breakfast, located at Junction 29. Alternatively The Tickled Trout about 2 miles from the venue will take your room booking. 

However today it is £64.00 on 


(less than booking direct with the hotel)

The Tickled Trout is another beautifully refurbished hotel.

Last chance to get cheap admission - please message me on here & I will put you on "the list". I have to say that this is now a very long list - it would be advisable to get there early !! Colin Curtis is kicking off proceedings at 8:00pm - quality tunes from the "get go" guaranteed !!
