Mmmmm don't know about that has the Pier been putting on regular events all that time or has there been a return to the pier.

I would have thought that the 100 Club with 25 years continuously would have been the longest runnning regular nighter ever. And a big prat on the back is deserved for all those involved especially you know who ;o))

THE PIER AND THE WINTER GARDENS ARE TWO SEPERATE VENUES THE POLICE STOPPED THE NIGHTERS IN THE SEVENTIES SO MARY CHAPMAN STARTED RUNNING ALLDAYERS AT THE WINTER GARDENS THESE RAN WELL INTO THE EIGHITIES THEN LIKE MOST EVENTS AT THAT TIME SHE HAD TO STOP THEM

THE WHERE ONE OR ONE OFF SPECIALS AFTER THAT, UNTILL STEVE WOMBLE TOOK UP THE RAINS AND WE HAVE BEEN BLEESED WITH NORTHERN SOUL BACK AT THE WINTER GARDENS ON A REGULAR BAISIS FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS OR SO, UNSURE OF PRECISE TIME SCALE. UNFORTUNATLY THE PIER AS IT WAS WAS SOLD OFF AND TURNED INTO A NIGHTCLUB AND AS SUCH IS FULL OF KIDS OFF THE HEADS DANCING TO RAVE MUSIC (SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE) WE ALSO HAVE REGULAR NIGHTS AT THE CHARTDALE CLUB AGAIN RUN BY STEVE WOMBLE

PLUS A MONTHLY NIGHT RUN THE REFORMED EAST COAST CONNECTION SOUL CLUB AT THE MEMORIAL HALL SO IF YOU COUNT THE BEACHOLME WEEKENDER THAT AN'T BAD FOR A SMALL SEASIDE TOWN

I'd love to see them do "Didn't I Do It To You" taken from their LP. What a killer track.
