Can we hear from a promoter who allows children into the venues please?

I aint bothered how well mum n dad has dressed their little Timmy and how cute they look in their Spencer Bags, I don't want kids at Nighters!

Not too bothered what happens at the local Soul Night but I aint driving half way across the country to a weekender or a Nighter that allows children into the venue.

Hi Sue and good morning

I can think of many practical reasons for a child not to be at an allnighter such as drugs, booze but the total and utter disrespect for the other allnighter goers or weekenders is mind-blowing.

The age limit is 18? If not then the promoters should tell us that children are welcome because I don't want to be at the venue when potentially there could be a childrens tea party scenario and any parent who wants to argue that only one or two are there then how dare they because one or two leads to three or four and at what point do the punters say no/

I am saying no to any!!!!

Fine if the venue's policy is for kidz, fine if the promoter wants a kiddies party al la Northernsoul, all I am saying is I want to know so I can avoid the venues who are allowing and encouraging children to go.

When i was a children 13 going to wigan no one was bothered better than the streets

but they were in the main alcohol free didn't do me any harm whistling.gif

weekenders are for the family for some and there parents are usualy close by keepn' a wide eye on things

.....under 13 is a bit young really but don't see em' round after say 7pm so no problem save kids running up and down the dancefloor in the afternoon, anoying but hey kids are allowed at that age but annoying adults should know better.Simon biggrin.gif

A yes/no poll not done cause nothings that simple.

So under 13's no at allnighters, but weekenders in the afternoon i dont care if there parents are there to look after em' or over 13.

Sue

Are you saying that because there is a likelihood that most of us had a drink before we where 18 that its now ok to have children at allnighters?

That logic is unsound?

What age is ok with you Sue and how many?

Any age, any number?

I don't want kids there full stop!

I dont drink or smoke but am glad the smoking bit is now banned inside clubs etc! im NOT saying its okay for underage kids doing it but they have a choice as we do!!!

you have STRONG views on the subject and i respect that but 18 in my eyes is young to do other stuff!! I would prefer 25 and over at some dos or 50 and above if poss but starting as young as I did it never did me any harm!!!

Im still a kid at heart just the body showing different

they do modern rooms oldies crossover rooms maybe someone could start the nursery room for those wanting kids to attend?? only a suggestion

sue

lighten up its all fun

I love seeing youngsters at nighters,as long as they're over 18,to be honest the odd one's that parents bring with them are usually great little dancers and well behaved and acting within the northern soul "etiquette" if you know what I mean.

I think that promoters should set the age limit to 18,especially for entry to the bogs! :lol:

I would think that kids at venues would only serve to shatter ones illusion of being a kid again themselves....just a thought.

It doesn't matter if most of us went to nighters when we were 13, or went to pubs at 14. I was 13 when i went to my first nighter.

There's a big difference between sneaking out with your mates and going to the pub or a nighter with a gang roughly the same age (whiich was what we all did) or going to a nighter with your mum and dad when 99% of people there are 40+ thesedays. Why would any kid want to do that and why wouldn't those parents want some time to themselves?

So what if Wigan and other nighters in the past had lots of under 16s, i don't want to see kids at nighters thesedays, or even soul nights.

There has to be time for us to lead an adult life away from our kids... and other people's kids for that matter.

I don't think we need to worry though, none of the young teenagers i know would be caught dead at a northern soul event. :lol:

I totally agree with Imberboy :D

I don't want to offend any parent's who have children, so this is only my opinion.....................but when i go out, i just don't want children around me, one venue i went to a while back............the kid's were running around & pushing into people, sitting in the middle of the dancefloor & just getting in folk's way, while the parent's just left them to it huh.gif

I would just like some adult time when i go out! :hatsoff2:

I can remember about ten years or so ago when Alfreton was going strong again the place was full of them...well when I say full roundabout 20 or so. Think Ian who ran it finished up banning them after a lot of complaints, quite rightly so.

see some at niters today and some can't be over 12.....in their vests and bags too :hatsoff2:

if i was a promoter, im afraid id deffo say over 18, the events on the scene are designed for a mature crowd, who should be able to relax , drink and dance etc, my experience is that if by any chance a child gets upset or hurt , the venue owner or promoter is gonna get the blame no matter the circumstances. or someone is gonna over react to a upset son or daughter and get themselves in trouble , or ruin the night for others . and i certainly wouldnt have allowed my kids loose in a room largely full of strangers from all over the country sorry , no way ..........ezzie

...and who wants to hear children be chastised by parents who would rather be on the dancefloor.Sympathies go out to the ones who can't get child care...but..its a NO from me.

Kids of 13 shouldn't really be out with niter folks,they should be on the local rec getting wasted on cheap cider.

Are venues and promoters covered under the child protection act or whatever it is? I know in sport anyone involved with kids has to have checks done at about £30 a time.

I don't think all-nighters with everything that is associated with them should be a place for kids.

Yes or No

I went to Stoke and saw a young boy there and I thought it was BRILLIANT!! It's not as if there are lot's and lot's of youngsters there!!! And as I see it we all should feel blessed that the younger generation are still appearing on the scene. Because when I look round at Niters it is full of middle aged Soulie's and we we aint careful the scene will die with us!

Now that would be a shame!

Soul Sister Jane aged 16 when I went to my 1st niter...... Was I too young? NO WAY......... I am 46 now..... so 30 years of loving Nothern Soul!!! xxx :hatsoff2:

There is a young boy who looks about 12 or 13 that I see at various nighters and soul nights around the North West. He is with adults who I assume are his parents.

Do you think if they tried to get into a run of the mill nightclub with the boy they would be allowed entry?

Not a chance.

:D No probs - nothing personal but you just reminded me of the fact that I'm scared of dogs. Some people are, and in my case it probably stems from the number of dogs I had attack me when I was a squaddie in Northern Ireland. Not many dog owners realise that not everyone is as welcoming towards their four legged friends.

As for kids - I've been to do's where they were running riot, sliding on talc etc, and a real pain in the @rse. I've also been to do's where some real youngsters had all the moves, and the ettiquette to go with it (no problem there), and I've enthused about them in the event lookback. thumbsup.gif

An Allnighter is a different Kettle of fish though. IMO if they're old enough to get there themselves and blag their way in, that's OK by me.

If they're young enough to need parents around, then they shouldn't be there.

:hatsoff2: Kev.

P.S. I'm not scared of kids.

Thats cause he looks 12, when i was 13 i used to go to over 21 nights at wakefield tiffs normal night club and get the special coach laid on for a quid at the club back to barnsley, never got pissed i could only afford one drink,14/15/16 year old can put on some slap get fals id of the net and they look older than me :ph34r: didnt most club have a under 18's thing going thats why all the memberships ? never stopped us it ain't gonna' stop them,if thats what they want.

This young boy i have seen him down the 100club,are you sure he is young and does not just look very young i allways wondered ?.

Jeri - i have never partaken in the wearing or puchasing of big pants or slinky vests.Anyone who says otherwise can see my lawyer (Big Paul)

...Hang on a minute...is that Peggy using Danny's 'puter:wicked:

Can't believe taking pets to venues has cropped up.Anyone thinking of owning a dog,first walk around town with a tesco bag full of dogsh*t in your pocket.See if you take to it.

Always here to help.

Say No to Kids.

IMHO the young lad at Stoke and Lottie should both be allowed in. That lad is a fantastic dancer and I only heard words of praise for him. Lotter ain't bad either but the only problem is she's a bit bossy like her mum...
