The ladies were rather good. Great performers, looked fabulous - had the moves, sung their hits and a joy in the meet and greet afterwards - memorable night and indeed an excellent, fun Weekender attracting a capacity crowd. The lovely, perfectly formed Met Ballroom as an additional Saturday and Sunday afternoon venue enhanced the Weekender further.  In the main a different crowd to July and enjoyable never the less. Seeing and hearing the Marvelettes perform 'when your young and in love'  as their encore was one of those magical moments ....

Rewinding, in previous years The Contours, Chairman of the Board so now waiting in anticipation for next years act to grace the stage at Whitby in 2018....

Not sure what happened with the original event post so good to see its been reloaded by Kev 

Have reloaded my posts as well 

Great news with the announcement of the 'live act' and the relaunched /refurbished Met  Ballroom and lounge as an additional venue including on Sunday .

Nice summary here 

Like July's Whitby , looks like being an adv sellout ...

For those thinking about going , guess its decision time ?

Counting down ....Can't wait for 'The First Ladies of Motown' who pre existing The Supremes . Interestingly Florence Ballard, during a 1962 Motortown Revue, joined The Marvelettes replacing Wanda Young while she was on maternity leave.

Please note this event is almost sold out. Last few tickets on sale www.whitbypavilion.co.uk

Looks like a repeat of July - Whitby becoming a 'Soul town' for this weekend with massive numbers heading for this Weekender .

If this event can start at 8:00 pm then why is it not possible for the July event to start at the same time instead of 9:00 pm I am sure most of the people would rather the early start instead of queuing for an hour and moaning about the late start.
