Hi everyone and welcome to the first Banbury Soul Club event of 2015.

Saturday 3rd January 2015


The Trades & Labour Club

32 West Bar Street



OX16 9RR

Pay on the door is still only £5.00.

Due to an administrative error we have had to change the venue for our January 2015 event.

Luckily we found somewhere that could accommodate us with this last minute alteration.

As I’m sure you all appreciate you need to have confidence that when you book a venue it will be honoured.

So with that in mind we will see what people think of this “new” venue and if the feedback is positive it may become our new permanent home.

But in some respects this venue has advantages over the previous one.

Free car parking right next door, realistic bar at Labour club prices and most importantly it has a wooden dance floor with a raised stage and the acoustics are brilliant.

Another plus is it’s all on ground floor level with no stairs to contend with.

Apologies for the absence of flyers, caused by the circumstances we were in.

Anyway onto the night itself.

As usual we continue with our policy of at least two guest DJ's, which helps keep the music fresh and exciting.

We are very pleased to welcome Mike Mazurek (Maz) and Kenneth (Back Door Kenny) Aitchison to our first event in 2015.

Ken is well known as a Soul scene stalwart.

DJ’ing all over the country at prestigious events including the 100 Club, Cleethorpes Weekender and more recently as a resident at the Rugby Soul Club all niters.

Mike is one of the Promoters at Oxford Soul Club. He has an excellent OVO collection and has DJ’d at respected venues across the country, including Bridlington Weekender, SoulFusion and The Dome.

I’m sure our two guests will complement each other with their soul selections on the night.

In summary this will genuinely be a “something for everyone” evening.

So make sure you come along and enjoy a superb soulful night’s entertainment for only £5.

The guest DJ’s will be supported by the Club residents, all long term collectors.

Charlie, Steve and Tom playing their own selections of danceable soul music to guarantee a brilliant night.

Anyway we all hope to see you all on Saturday 3rd January 2015.

Admission is just £5.

As Tom said - yes into our twelve year. And a different venue for our January night. Banbury Trades and Labour Club.

Which is literally two minutes from our famous Banbury Cross.

Follow the B4035 (which is West Bar Street) Horse and Jockey Pub on the right. Labour Club right next to it.

Drive into car park. And use car park entrance to get into venue.

Two great DJ's again - with fab collections. Maz and Ken.

Well known to us all.

So come along and join us. Dance off that Christmas pud!!!

Have a good Christmas everybody. And thanks for you support throughout the year.

From all of us in Banbury.

Will be great to see you tonight Maz.  Don't work to hard mate!  Lol


Remember folks.  Use the car park side entrance to the Club. 


Got to set up after the kids Pantonmine this afternoon.  Hope they take the staging down in time, or we will be doing a Soul Night with a back drop to Robinson Crusoe.  Lol!

It all worked out rather well for us last night at this new venue.

Never seen so many travellers in at one of our do's.  From far and wide (incl Stevenage)

Swindon Crew, Oxford Crew, so many individual faces all making the effort to get in a car and drive somewhere out of Town.

(Just too many to mention - BUT thank you very much - we really appreciate YOU).

You know, like it used to be all the time.   Travelling was half the fun. 

Superb sets from Kenny and Maz.   The floor was busy from start to finish.  What an atmosphere !

We will be detailing exactly where and when you can expect our other four events of 2015 very soon.

Keep looking , listening to Social Media for the update.


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

First of all folks, thanks for turning out and supporting us so close after Christmas and New Year.  Really appreciate it!  Guest DJ's on the night - Maz and Kenny.  Excelled our expectations, each put together a cracking set.  They loved it!


Had a scare at the start.  In all the excitment left my bag of LP's in the taxi.  Didn't realise until I got into the venue.  After some franticing phoning calling by Tab's.  He managed to track the taxi down, and they were bought back.  Thanks Tabs - another brandy and lemonade I owe you.  Lol


It was a great night.  Brilliant atmosphere.  Once again thanks very much.


Keep it Soulful, keep it danceable...
