Event Date & Time:

Event Location:  Ferryhill Station   DL17 OAG

Event Description

It's been over a year now since the Serious Shades of Soul crew put on a Northern Soul night and after much persuasion we have a new venue which is superb. Alongside Nige Grice we hopefully will be putting Northern Soul Nights on at Mainsforth Community Centre in Ferryhill Station County Durham. It doesn't sound very exotic but this place screams "Station Rd, Wigan Casino". The first floor venue has such presence it's beyond me why Northern Soul nights have not been put on here before now.  The main hall has a superb maple dance floor and full balcony over looking the hall which will be open if numbers allow. we will be catering for all Northern Soul followers but with an emphasis on quality original vinyl only music plus the best DJ's from around the UK. We will cater for everyone, across the board music policy with great Northern Soul.....

The first guest dj on the night will be Pete Lyster from The Bridgewater Arms Soul Club. Pete needs no introduction as a DJ with him being one of the main protagonists at The Bridlington, Newquay and Amsterdam Soul Weekenders. A fantastic soul collector and DJ, we look forward very much to his first appearance in the North East.

Nige Grice - long established DJ from the Manchester / Brighouse area - always a crowd pleaser no matter who's in the house...

Paul Ackley from Newton Aycliffe who still packs a punch with the rarest of the rare.... check out his playlists..

Sean Tasker from Newcastle, Sean has an enviable collection of hard to get Northern Soul, like Nige Grice, a certain crowd pleaser. Plus local DJ's still to be press ganged onto the roster.

£4.00 on the door gets you into one of the most atmospheric halls in the North east - about 5 minutes (2 miles) from junction 60 A1M (HEADING NORTH) take your first left onto A689 then immediate first right onto Gipsy Lane direct to Ferryhill Station. Parking directly opposite the club plus plenty of free on street parking.

This will be one of the best Northern soul nights in the North East this year...... Don't miss it.... and with drinks at £2.50 a pint what's not to like....

Regards Paul & Nige

Things are hotting up now for the big Northern Soul night at Mainsforth, Ferryhill.

This soul night will cover all aspects of the Northern Soul scene especially Oldies as requested by many punters, gonna be a packer with buses organised from Newcastle and afar.

We look forward to delivering a quality Northern Soul Night with quality Dj's.

get there early for the prime seats.

We put a Soul Night on here circa 89. Me, Jonathan Allen, Tony Boyce and Alex Lowes DJd. A few came from Teeside if I remember correctly. I remember I played Margie Joseph - Ridin High, Randy Brown - I'm Here, Tyrone Davis - Aint Nothin I can Do, Backstabbers; nobody knew any of them at the time. Alex nailed it with Terry Callier - Don't Want to See Myself, Jesse James and Sidney Joe Qualls. The rest of his set was crap but he just blew the roof with the three biggest records around at that time.  

Good venue and I'll try to make it if I'm not at work.

Hopefully full playlists of whole evening will be listed next week sometime Dave. No doubt the guest dj's will have some juicy big hitters plus perennial favourites / crowd pleasers.
