BANBURY SC - New Year, New Venue & New Music policy. on

This event is now over



Saturday 7th January 2017 - 8pm to 1amGeneral Foods Sports and Social Club.

Castle Quays



OX16 2PA  

Our 13th Anniversary in November was the last event at the Trades & Labour Club.

The T & L Members informed the Committee they want to use the Club all year round.

We moved to the Labour Club because we were told General Foods Sports & Social Club was closing down under the new Banbury Quayside development. 

Well that has changed and General Foods Club is not closing.

So fortunately not only did we get invited back but the timing couldn't have been better. 

But now the challenge is to fill this large venue. 

From January 2017 there will be four nights of Northern Soul and Motown promoted by Banbury Soul Club.

The biggest change will be the music policy. 

All events for 2017 will be strictly "Oldies" only.

The music played will now be one hundred per cent Northern Soul ‘Oldies’ and Motown. 

Over the years our music policy has always been across the board. 

But between the DJ’s they have an amazing collection of original Northern Soul Oldies, which they never get the chance to play.

So they are very excited and really looking forward to playing all your favourites from 8.00pm to 1.00am, non-stop! 

There will be no lesser knowns or underplayed at the beginning: it will be ‘full’ on from 8.00pm. 

The play list will be  your favourite sounds from the Golden Age of Northern Soul and the Classic Clubs where they were discovered.

The Torch, The Twisted Wheel, Catacombs, Blackpool Mecca , Wigan Casino, Yate, Cleethorpes and Stafford.

So make sure you get there early to get your seats.  Because you will love and be surprised at the vast collection of tunes the DJ's have.

We will also be bringing in like-minded guest DJ’s to complement our selections.

So we now need all your help to promote the new venue and change of music policy. 

Oldies nights are very popular and we want to get the word out. 

As a Club we take no money apart from running expenses. 

We are very proud that over the years your £5’s have gone to local charities and some overseas charities as well. 

We are a non-profit making club and we put the nights on for everyone to have a great time.

Saturday night did not disappoint back @ G.F. Club.
Great crowd in who were really up for it from the start.
So many faces returning in numbers due to our new music policy and because of this great venue.
Dave Gilkes played a superb set 9-10pm.   Thank you for helping us out.
Residents did what was needed on the decks.
Happy smiley faces all round.    Long may it continue.

See you all again on Sat 1st April for Round Two.
