‘Dotties Soul Sessions #2’

Event Information

Following the success of the inaugural events in July, Its ‘Dotties Soul Sessions #2’ with an afternoon chill out session and Northern Soul and Motown on Saturday night. 

 

‘Dotties’  is situated in Pickering town centre , hidden away in a delightful mews location and a fabulous and unique  licenced 5ts /6ts styled  Italian coffee bar /cafe /gelato parlour. ‘

 

To be fair it isn’t large inside or out , by any stretch of the imagination or reality, but perfectly formed. Heaven in the sheltered courtyard, particularly during the warmer months whist inside captures that 5ts/6ts age with the decor and decoration. ‘Dotties’ is ideal for the soul sessions and certainly something rather unique, different and appealing .....

Saturday 8th Sept sees the afternoon chill out session from 1pm - 7pm in the courtyard.

For the evening, it’s inside and upstairs for the dance floor and Northern Soul & Motown oldies,  8pm- midnight. 

 

(The afternoon chillout session on Sunday 9th September has been cancelled).

Already been asked about accommodation for those wanting to stay over /making a weekend of it (Pickering is a delightful market town and tourist attraction in its own right, on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors , ‘Heartbeat’ country a short drive across the moors to Whitby & the coast etc.) 

So try Welcome to Pickering

For those that don’t know ‘Dotties’ it is shown on the ‘street view’, albeit closed . The courtyard is behind the whitewashed walls , entrance through the large painted wooden doors . The bar /cafe/gelato parlour is on the ground floor of the two storey building to the right (upstairs is the venue for Saturday night ) . Elsewhere on the street view , the public car park can just be seen through the trees.

‘Dotties Soul Sessions #2’ , afternoon chillout on Sunday 9th September has had to be cancelled due to unavoidable and previously unseen circumstances.

 

So there’s no doubt or confusion , Saturdays’ afternoon chillout and Saturdays’ evening Northern & Motown event on 8th Sept will go ahead as planned . 

If anyone feels the need for more info please pm me .

When last saw Avril Lee (Little Av) we reminisced about those fabulous Manifesto Soul Club nites which featured Av as a resident . So with just a little arm twisting have persuaded Av to re visit some of those great sounds (and others ) from her collection and guest at the evening Northern & Motown session .

 

(Av will also be playing a contrasting chillout set during the afternoon ).

Really looking forward to this, heard nothing but good reviews from those who attended the first and I'm honoured to be asked to do  a spot in the afternoon.

 

The pleasure is ours and hopefully all those who decide to indulge in Dotties Soul Sessions #2 . Always enjoy your sets Ian and recounting to each other our respective times spent in the promised land .

For those wishing to partake of the ‘lemonade’  rather than driving , there’s always the regular Coastliner (bus) option . Leeds -Tadcaster - York - Malton - Pickering - Whitby .

 

Also been  asked about accommodation. Understand The  Black Swan now sold out so  Airb&b might be a good choice . Just out of Pickering (towards Whitby) there’s the Fox and Rabbit pub , good food , b&b and campsite .  Otherwise there’s trivargo etc and the ‘welcometopickering’ website. Also there’s probably more accommodation available  a few miles down the road in Malton, with its selection of hotels & Chapter 2 in the Market Place ...

Still a changing weather forecast for Saturday in Pickering . Was predicted all day sun & warm , now could be rain . 

So ... as a contingency to the  courtyard ...
