And so the 19th year of the Original Skegness Soul Weekender came and went. Donna and I would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for the tremendous support and following for the event. Each year seems to bring a NEW dimension to the Weekender and this year was no exception. Everybody played their part.. a BIG team effort and one that worked a treat from Mick's birthday whiskers session on Thursday through to our Sunday night finale. Next year is 20 years on and already plans are being set for that milestone weekend. We do hope that you can all join us once again and we look forward to seeing you out and about before then. Stay well y'all and keep on dancing 1f642.png🙂 D&D xx

An absolute pleasure to be part of the whole weekend.  Congratulations to you all for organising this every year.  We just turn up and expect it all to be ready when we get there XX 

Big 60 for Mick and such a great Thursday night with the DJ's playing just for him. 

The Vault for me was the place to be with a collection of DJ's playing the best of this music we call Soul.  Saw some old faces, some OLD faces and some new ones along the way.  Best T Shirt of the weekend went to Donna and Dave's Granddaughter XXXX

Already ready for next year and a new broom in the Vault for Thursday which won't stop it being The Vault !!  Don't know what is planned for next year but a 20 Year celebration ! Perhaps Dave will open his shop and give us all a 50% discount ?????

See you around guys and girls but above all, see you at Skeggy the last weekend of next September XXX
