Soul Night in Memory of John Lewis (Louis) on

This event is now over

Date: Saturday 25th November 2017

Venue:  Fox Lane Sports and Social Club, Leyland PR25 1HB

Times: 7.30pm-1am

Remarkable though it seems, it's approaching twelve months since our dear friend Louis passed away. It was always our intention to host a night in his memory and, with the blessing of his wife Heather and children, Paul & Jo, we've finally got one organised.

DJs: The tunes will be played by some of Louis' closest friends including Paul Johnson, Bernie Golding, Tony Smith, Dave Molloy, Chuddy, Giz Southworth, Derek Pearson (with Joan and myself helping out if needs be)

Admission: via a minimum £5 donation to Bolton Hospice (all proceeds from the night will go directly to the hospice)

We hope that people will turn out in numbers to celebrate John's life and  to remember one of the nicest blokes you could ever hope to meet - while raising a few quid for a fine cause in the process  - what's not to like! (Great venue, quality sound system and loads of free parking too).

 

*Sincere apologies to anyone with whom this event 'clashes'. We did our utmost to avoid it but it was important to hold the night in November and this was literally the only date we could secure the venue on.

Note: this is now a stripped down post-event display

Thanks for posting Phil :thumbsup:

Really looking forward to what will be a great but no doubt emotional night, can't believe it's nearly a year. Here's to raising a glass in Louis' memory and a hopefully a good amount for Bolton Hospice who looked after him so well x

Just heard from Richard Searling who has very kindly offered a couple of his brilliantly compiled 7" box sets (Stax 7" and Motown Vol.4 ) With sincere thanks to Richard Searling

The above like the Bury Allnighter/Hotel package will form part of the prize draw on the night.

cheers
