With us its all about the music , no politics ,no beer swillers,NO drinks on the dancefloor,130 capacity beautiful ballroom with own toilets and bar.

Fully sprung dancefloor,and that's something we know about!

Come and share a little good old fashioned FUN with us ,yes we take the scene seriously but lets NOT get to uptight.

What a nighter that was !

Massive RESPECT to all of you who came along and put their trust in us.

A weekend born from a passion for the tunes and a mutual RESPECT for the scene and everyone in it.

Thankyou to the DJ TEAM and thank-you to all you genuine soulsters who for us made our night,it was nice to see both local and not so local attendees.

What stuck out for me and personally love you all for this was the way that you accepted in a group of people initially frowned upon,but then warmed to and welcomed.
Just goes to show that music really is a breaker of barriers at the same time being a foundation for building relationships.
