******VENUE CHANGE*****

The 2nd Chester Soul Club All Dayer

WE HAVE HAD TO CHANGE OUR VENUE. We are so, so, sorry.


I think I am jinxed. Following the fiasco that happened back in March (long story, savings gone...), I have just been informed that there are critical electrical safety works to the Guildhall currently being carried out and they have uncovered problems which means the wiring is not safe for the event. Being grade 1 listed, the works have extra complications. Consequently the venue have informed us that it won't be available for our event on Aug 29th. We are absolutely devastated.

I have been on the phone all yesterday trying to arrange a replacement venue, and have by the grace of God managed to secure McLeans in Pentre.

Our original DJ line up will be playing, but unfortunately we won't be able to have a second room. We apologise to all the Collectors and DJs that had agreed to play, anybody who had bought tickets specifically for this, and to Mark Speakman of FunkyFeet Records for wasting their time.

The new venue address is McLeans Bar, Chemistry Lane, Pentre, Deeside CH5 2DA.

Although Mcleans isn't city centre, it is a real, genuine feeling Northern Soul venue. The room will hold 150 like the Guildhall main hall, has a fantastic dancefloor, does cheap beer and food all day. There is plenty of parking and local hotels available.

It is a £10 20 minute taxi ride from Chester city centre or £5 five minute one from Shotton railway station.

We cannot apologise enough to everybody, this has really come as a body blow after being ripped off in March. We REALLY hope you will come to the new venue, the place may be different but the music and feel will remain. If anyone wishes to get a refund, please contact me chestersoulclub@aol.com and I will sort something out with you.

Again, so so sorry. All we wanted to do was give everyone a fantastic day out, which believe me we will pull out all the stops to make sure we will.

It would appear i am jinxed.

Sorry again
