About The Event

Ok here goes......Many many people have been asking when is CO72 this year. It's heartwarming to see the swell of admiration and affection for this event which had its roots way back in 2008

My thoughts had been for months to let this behemoth of a charity event just lie.....

Promoters know the efforts and considerations that have to go on behind the scenes in organising an alldayer. especially in the current climate of pop up events and diary clashes etc

With the invaluable help from the East Midlands connection and the 'trusty' backing of the Follow The Music Not the Crowd gang we have managed to put together a package we think is unique and worthy of such a long standing and revered occasion

Historically its been a long running fundraising event first established in 2008 at the Ryan Hall in Tunstall...... over the years ...raising well nigh on £35000 from its generous patrons

More details to follow but make a 'placeholder' in your diaries for this new/improved format . A format to savour !!!

A hybrid of those sounds of 'today' delivered with aplomb from the firmly established FTMNTC team and guests.. widely acknowledged as delivering challenging and adventurous playlists whilst also attracting some of the most forward thinking and adventurous DJ's around.....

Mixed in expertly with those fabulous sounds from that bygone era as classmates of 72 we all adored--- all played by a group of chaps who were actually there and have that recall of those sounds from back in the day

So a 10hrs mix of the past and present...packaged in a long established charity fundraiser

Continuing to be run from the fabulous Cricket Club at Congleton in leafy South Cheshire

This is an open invite.........if you feel the urge coming on !!!

we going to a Happening

Right its just a few weeks to go ....best get the game face on !!

Firstly I just want to put into context the whole CO72/CO23 event/happening

This really isn't just ANY 'reunion' event

This isn't is a reunion/anniversary type event..

where the money goes into the bulging pockets of the promoters as they greet you with a beaming smile at the door.(.Turkey teeth and all 🙂

(so don't be confused )

YEAH you know the ones

******** ALL PROFITS GO TO CHARITY ****************

Everyone involved in this event is offering their valuable services for free....to maximise the charitable contributions

CO72 itself has been in existence for many years...quietly going about its business of donating to charities and having a 'whale' of a time in the process !!

The ORIGINAL and best annual 'era' event raising nearly £35,000 for charity since 2008

Your £10 entrance goes to charity guaranteed !!!!

Be safe and secure in the thought...your generosity will be making a difference !!

we wont have your pants down !!!!

Ive been asked what is 'hybrid' about it...

well let me explain..it really is a simple and exciting concept

 

With the invaluable help from the East Midlands connection and the 'trusty' backing of the Follow The Music Not the Crowd gang we have managed to put together a package we think is unique and worthy of such a long standing and revered occasion

something to look forward to !!!

1) A quick reminder for those kind people who are considering donating a prize for the raffle......a MASSIVE thank you --and if you hand it in on the door we will ensure it goes in with all the other prizes for the draw !!

every little helps towards fundraising for our 3 charities this year

MND

University Hospital North Midland Charity

British Heart Foundation

2) This is NOT just another Charity soul night....

.We DO emphasise the DAY/NIGHT aspect. of this long established annual event...

get in EARLY if you can ... meet friends and acquaintances old and new..enjoy the separate bar and lounge area along with a fabulous alfresco space..



3) with that in mind allow me to mention the car park onsite tends to fill up early, if you intend to get there later you may want to try in the first instance

Once the venue car park is full..there is plenty of roadside parking outside the venue and surrounding roads and side roads

Alternatively...there are 2 car parks approx 5 mins walk from the venue

Antrobus Street, CW12 1HB

West Street, CW12 1JR

4) travelling by car ?

Easy access...under 20 mins from J17 and J18 M6....its a picturesque venue in a unique setting in South Cheshire

I think this is worth a mention

ALL the DJ's and those behind the scenes are donating their time and efforts for FREE

Many are stopping over for the night in local hotels and B&B's along with a fair few patrons of the event who want to make a 'night' of it

Such is the respect afforded to this event

The venue have agreed to donate the venue for FREE and really get behind this event

**ALL MONIES RAISED WILL BE DONATED TO THE CHARITIES**

The charities are :-

MND Assoc.

British Heart Foundation

UHNM charity.org

We DO hope you can attend...its always a fun day and evening....your donations WILL go straight to the charities

AS interest is building ....questions are arising about wristbands and ordering them prior to the event.

NO just to confirm 

YES you can pay on the door. £10 entry on the door...you will receive a wristband PLUS a complimentary raffle ticket

We really wanna make this as easy as possible...I see no sense in forcing people to buy wristbands beforehand and then be stuck with them if they cant attend......

Link to comment

For many this annual fundraising event...has become an institution....a chance to rekindle old friendships and make new ones..... to the 'backdrop' of some of the best sounds laid down on vinyl

A quick 'heads up' to the Cricket Club . who do a sterling job ..hosting us....they make us ALL feel very welcome.....

So CO72/CO23 .game on !!!!

Feel free to share and lets raise some funds for the 3 charities

MND

University Hospital North Midland Charity

British Heart Foundation

The ;team' are busily doing the usual 'behind the scenes' organising for this years CO72/CO23...and have requested we put a shout out to people for any raffle prizes.

Each year to supplement the funding for the charity donations from admission fees ...we run a raffle...and over the years there have been some fantastic raffle donations from you .......and for this we THANK YOU ALL for your generosity

So if you think you may be able to donate a prize for the raffle PLEASE bring it along on the day

many thanks again

Last few days...feverish behind the scene tweaks going on......reminded me on Saturday I saw someone who had been to our first one at Ryan Hall and many of the others for the next 15 yrs......really struck a chord ...and I do HOPE many of our long standing patrons from the early days manage to attend......we dont get the chance to meet up not nearly enough !!!

The 'old guard' ...in the nicest possible way. ..do hope you can make it on Saturday ...would be fan..bloody...tastic !!!.

OK...have had a few private messages asking me 'do you have to buy a wristband beforehand' ?

The club have also had numerous phone calls with similar questions !!

Well the answer is YES you can pay on the door.

£10 entry on the door...you will receive a wristband PLUS a complimentary raffle ticket

 

See you all on Saturday

Just for clarity.........

CO72..................... those fabulous sounds from that bygone era as classmates of 72 we all adored--- all played by a group of chaps who were blessed enough to be actually there and have that recall of those sounds from back in the day......firmly embedded in their mindset....

If you're fond of the oldies of that Wheel/Torch/UTJ/Va Va's/ early Wigan era....then you've hit the motherlode here !!!!!!!!! No really ...these chaps WILL Deliver !!!

CO23.....................those sounds of 'today' delivered with aplomb from the firmly established FTMNTC team and guests.. widely acknowledged as delivering challenging and adventurous playlists whilst also attracting some of the most forward thinking and adventurous DJ's around to their FTMNTC nights......a taste of the NOW !!!

Do YOU feel an urge coming on !

Due to sad personal circs one of our attendees wont be able to make it on Saturday ....and was wondering whether there was any interest in buying her Hotel double room booking off her..she will cancel the booking otherwise and its the LAST room there
