Event Details


As many of you are aware  I ran the Blesma Charity All Nighters with my dear friend, Character and Soul Legend SIMON CUERDEN For many years.   
Being from an “ARMED FORCES” background this event was dear to Simons heart  and when I visited him in hospital the day before his passing in 2019 I made him a promise that the event would continue in his memory . A promise that I intend to keep.  

In January of 2020 The Northern Soul Scene, for the first time in many years or even for the first time ever, came together putting politics and rivalries to one side to  Honour The Memory of A Soul Legend and to support  BLESMA the limbless veterans charity.   

The Response was “ Bloody Amazing “.    For that weekend, Both “All Nighters” And  many “Soul Nights” either Cancelled or Moved away from their regular dates out of respect for  Simons memory.   Allowing over 1000 to attend  THE SIMON CUERDEN MEMORIAL BLESMA CHARITY ALL NIGHTER 2020.  

Where together with Simons other love  “THE ARMED FORCES SCOOTER CLUB (AFSC)” we raised in excess of £10000. Making it the “BIGGEST” charity All Nighter “EVER” and making me PROUD to be a “SOULIE”.   


During the pandemic, for almost 2 years BLESMA, as with many other charities, have been unable to do fund raising events and their income has dropped to desperate levels. 

In response and in true SOULIE tradition. Together with AFSC, we have made arrangements to hold :- 


At SWINTON GRAND PALAIS, Station Rd, Swinton, Manchester on SATURDAY 15th January 2022  

40 of the countries Biggest Northern Soul and Scooter DJs    Playing top tunes In 3 separate rooms  ( total capacity over 1100) 

  Plus a  “Live” appearance and  the Soulful sounds of 
         JOHNNY BOY PRYERS  in the scooter ballroom  

12 hours (7pm til 7am) 

Advance tickets  only £ 10.00 plus £1.00 postage 
PayPal Friends and Family to    
***.  Please put your postal address in PayPal notes ***

Please support this event and Come On Down and HELP US TO HELP BLESMA  ( The limbless Veterans Charity )
Let us see if we can beat the 2020 record donation of £10000 

Regards and Respect    … Brent and the Invicta Crew51C45ECD-1566-4098-9AEF-9E176C1818FA.thumb.jpeg.0e182c199664a0be1ed884f7fa64b7a5.jpeg

Don't forget....pay on the door facility available. This event has an enormous capacity of over 1000 people and


boasts 3 rooms of music inc the famous Swinton Palais Ballroom with its awesome decor and acoustics


Since its inception this is fast becoming THE Allnighter to go to.....travellers from all corners of the UK and beyond clamour to attend....this really is an annual 'gathering of the clans'


There is a 'proper allnighter atmosphere'


its a real 'blast from the past' !!


If you only go one Allnighter ALL year.......................this is it !!
