Adding a flyer works best if you add the event  flyer to the main event page as a cover image (hit the 'manage event' button - then choose 'edit details' -then look for 'cover image' and upload via the 'choose single item button'

One uploaded as a cover image it then shows...

  • As a cover image on the  top of the event page (you can alter the position of it if needed later)
  • Clickable thumbnail on the event side bar
  • Also may show on highlights/feeds elsewhere on site
  • Automatically shows off site when posted/shared to twitter, facebook etc etc

DJ Introduction Mr George Wallace

As a teenager in the 60's I always loved the new sounds from Motown, The Four Tops and Temptations while all my pals liked The Beatles and Rolling Stones. Joined the Royal Navy in 1966 and was in Far East for until the end of 1969, loved going out in Singapore buying loads of Soul albums. Came up to Scotland with the Navy in 1972 and met Maureen, we were both into Northern Soul already, got married in 1974 and lived here in Fife ever since, started Dj'ing at the Angus Hotel in Dundee and did most of the early nights up here, Walkers, Tiffanys, Marriot, Clouds, and loads more, was also lucky enough to have been asked to Dj in Bologna, Italy and Gothenburg, Sweden, eventually took over promoting "The Spiders Web" from Kenny Burrell and Derek Robertson and had a great time doing that up until they closed it in 2014, eventually stopped Dj'ing Northern and sold all the collection in 2012 but have since carried on doing Modern Soul nights which I was also collecting since the mid nineties.

Sounds like I plan for next year.  Unfortunately couldn't make it this time. 

Hi Steve,

If the plan doesn't go pear-shaped we should be moving to the NE this Friday.  Perhaps we can both make it to next year's event...long time no see matey.

 What a great weekender !!! 
I was proudand honoured to have been asked to DJ at this First Tyneside Weekender .  
The Venue and organisation  was First Class, the Music was Awsome  with some of the countries  Best known and lesser known Djs keeping the dance floors in all 4 Rooms  full from start to finish every night . 
 Having said that, IMHO a special mention is deserved for the young lads  Ethan McDermott and Ethan Howarth who had the floor literally bouncing  double decking each night .  Brilliant spots !  

Well Done Paul and Co. Thank you for a great weekender 

Regards and Respect ...    Brent
