Banbury Soul club 3rd Jan with Sean Chapman on
This event is now over
Ever since we formed Banbury Soul Club 5 years ago , it has always been our ambition to make the club as successful , Soulful, and as enjoyable as possible for visitors, and create the ideal scene for everyone who attends our Soul nights .Although we have been very happy at North Newington Social Club , we have always felt restricted by the early 12.15am finish time , the lack of a proper wooden dance floor , and we know by feedback, that the obscure location of the club made it difficult for some travellers to find us .
We now have the answer to our dreams , The LE ROYALE club in Butchers Row OX16 5JH [ for Sat Navs ] , just off the High St / Market Place , right in the centre of Banbury ,Oxon , and only 5 minutes drive off the M40 [ Jun. 11 ] . This club has recently been extensively re - furbished , has a fantastic in house sound system , great lighting , big, fully loaded bar area , huge wooden dance floor and superb comfortable seating surrounding all sides of the dance floor .Best of all , we can now run the club until 2am in the morning , which is brilliant news for everyone . Also record sellers / dealers / merchandise etc are more than welcome, as we have an ideal seperate room , with speakers piping music from the main hall .
There is extensive free parking in the Market Place , or in TK Maxx's car park off Calthorpe Street , either car park is only a couple of minutes walk from the venue .Also , there are two nearby bars if you want an early drink . Bonitos Wine bar in White Lion Walk is a great bar , playing Soul music ,[ 2 minutes walk from LE ROYALE ] or The Coach and Horses pub is right next door to LE ROYALE , recently re furbished and serves great meals if you feel a bit hungry , and fancy a bite to eat , or a drink in comfortable surroundings .
Our opening night is Saturday Jan . 3rd 2009 with very special guest Sean Chapman ,plus all the regular DJ's Charlie , Dave , Eddie ,Steve and Tom .The night will run from 8pm through to 2am .The music policy will be the same great mix of Northern Soul , 70's movers, 60's R & B , interesting Motown and a smattering of newer sides . We look forward to welcoming you all to our new home ,we're sure it's gonna be great !! Many thanks for your outstanding loyal support over the last 5 years , we couldn't have come this far without you !!
See you at the go - go ............
