What another classic night main room was packed and rocking on arrival standing room only you could only find a space at the edge of the dance floor atmosphere was good like the old days - downstairs was busy dj's played a good mix of music and done the job required for another memorable visit to this venue that still makes it happen I haven't danced so much and didn't want to let it finish roll on next year -

Well done Ally & the team for making it happen -

Great night Mr Mayer - So glad I attended place was buzzing when I got there main floor was full and yes packed most of the night - really good to see Mr Rae back behind the decks, as well as Evison, Adam,Ally, Fortnum and Kingy - you nailed it - was only going to stay until about 12 ish but ended up watching Chris King's last spot till 2 ish.

The second room dance floor down stairs was busy most of the night, with Rob Smith wheeling and dealing records all night long.

Special highlight moment was the table - stepladder - guy with the pony tail balancing act on stage - yes you had to be there- all done without a hi viz in sight - looking forward to how you top that next year. 

plus - supporting two really worthwhile charity's - prostrate and breast cancers.

Same again next year Ally

This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

What colour was it Maxine? When we do the reunion we bring all of the old membership books and admission books from the old allnighters. It is like looking back in history seeing all of the people who attended and looking up their membership numbers. A lot of people gave false names because they were not 18 or used friends addresses because they didn't want their parents to know where they had been!

If you make the reunion in May make sure you have a look through the old books in the downstairs room.

Here is the full set of record label stickers for this years Reunion goodie bag. There will also be a patch, CD and badge - so worth the admission costs on so many levels. This year the profits will split between Prostate and Breast cancer charities. See you on Sunday 28th May for your annual return to Leicester!

 Anbody arriving in Leicester earlier than 4pm can go to the Exchange Bar in Rutland Street (just round the corner from the Oddfellows). opposite the Curve Theatre. We are all meeting in there from 12 Noon and they will be playing northern all day free admission. If you use the NCP car Park on Rutland Street then get your ticket stamped at the Exchange Bar for a reduced rate (it was £5 all day last year) Ally
