Alfreton Leisure Centre Reunion 2015100% of Profits To Terminally Ill Cancer Care (Macmillan and Marie Curie)


Sat 29th August 2015 - 8pm - 1am

DJ's: Dave Evison, Nev Shooter, Pete Taylor, Mark Mellors, Glyn Williams

In 2015 it's 18 years since the regular soul nights began at Alfreton Leisure Centre. At it's height there were more that 1000 people through the door from across the country every month.

For one night only I invite you to come along and experience The Best In Northern Soul - Alfreton Style!

Admission will be a mere £5 on the door and the venue is The Bowls Hall.

Holding up to 1500 people and with a low ceiling for great acoustics The Bowls Hall is where it all started back in 1997. A professional 8k sound system is being installed for the event and the floor and management are talc friendly. 

Do come along, help raise some money and dance your bits off!

Had a really good night last night. Brilliant company and it was great to see some friends we haven't seen for a while. Alfreton used to be one of our favourite soul nights and it was good to be back  there. How about having it a bit more regular again, maybe when it's a 5 Saturday month!!?. Tina & Phil.

It was great meeting up with old friends again, music top notch and the bar wasn't a major problem as I still managed to wake up with a headache this morning. All for a great cause too, well done Glyn..

Not there for the Beer but I think most people took it in their stride.  The night was fabulous. Raised lots of dosh for the Charity which is a main reason for the event but the DJ's did a terrific job keeping the floor busy all night long.  Met up with lots of old friends and had a fab time.  Warm welcome on arrival and very friendly staff.  Top night, well done guys - take a bow XX

Hope that everyone enjoyed last night - the place was rammed.  

Sincere apologies for the problems with the bar - this was made worse when during a barrel change on the lager the thing that you stick in the barrel sheared off and couldn't be removed. - they managed to do a 'Heath Robinson' fix to get it going again. The centre sends strong apologies.

I haven't done the full numbers yet but I'm guessing that after costs we made around a grand on the door and £340 from the raffle for our chosen charities Marie Curie and Macmillan.  Once I have the figures I'll publicise all costs and profits in here and as promised last night whatever you all raised will be made up to a £2000 donation by my personal funds. That's £1000 each to each charity.  It's fantastic that we can all enjoy ourselves AND do some good for people and their families facing the last weeks and days of a terminal illness.

Once again, thanks to everyone for coming and having such a great time.
