All djs confirmed now adverts and flyers should be out soon.For those who put deposits down for the oct prestatyn why not try to get pontins to transfer it to southport,just a thought.

Had a no of enquires from people local to the camp in southport about session only passes.Im afraid pontins dont do session only passes at any of there camps,its been the same for those local to the prestatyn camp for 10 years,you have to book for the weekend.We will be asking the new owners about this policy,but i honestly dont expect it to change.It might be worth looking into booking one of the budget chalets for 4 locals,i think you will find its still cheaper than a lot of the other weekenders that are really soul nites and no accomodation.2niters and 2 dayers would cost around 30 quid anywere,and for a bit more you get the chalet thrown in as well.

DJ'd here in the Northern Room at the scooter weekender last month.

I have to say the big main room is massive with a superb dancefloor and the sound system could knock you over at 1000 yards. It'll be great to be back there and playing in such a line up of great DJ's.

Honour and a privilege to be asked :thumbsup:

the modern wknder here was one of the biggest and best soul wkenders in the world with being local ive been to that event many times .and all i can say is once this new northern wkender gets going im sure it will live up to the modern one that sadly finished after 25 years due to all the uncertainty over its future , i understand the new owners have at last got the place sorted out ,

its a great place to come and enjoy the wknd big massive dance floor its got the lot .

im realy looking forward to it. :yes::thumbsup:

A couple of questions,

First can the two threads be combined? It's a pain in the @rse having to check both to get the latest updates.

Web booking seem to be live here

Pontins Northern Soul weekender

Second question, will there be any accommodation deals for couples?

Last question, if you go through the booking procedure the default number of nights is 2. If you change it to 3 it defaults back to 2, so presumably the all dayers are Friday and Saturday and we all go home on Sunday?

Accomodation deals wise,pretty much like prestatyn depends on type of chalet.But i can tell you the chalets are way better than prestatyn.

Just had a good look at this & all the others in & around September, can only manage 2 due to financial & physical matters (I'm an old decrepit sod & financially embarrassed), so after seeing that Southport is 2 Nighters plus 2 Alldayers, meaning that there'll be music whenever you go in the room, which suits me, no wandering into Prestatyn or it's deserted sea front freezing your bits off or soaked to the skin, plus it seems to be a similar promotional team, a very good one by the way & have you seen the line up of DJ's??? A definite across the board mix of something Old, New, Rare & Blue, so it's Club class here for us, because we're worth it, closely followed by Skeg Vegas the week after because that's a great friendly laid back weekender, hopefully the sun will shine on both of them & September will be a month to remember.:thumbup:

Take care, be safe & remember,"Ba de ya - say do you remember,Ba de ya - dancing in September, Ba de ya - golden dreams were shiny days",

Spot.:shades:

I'm gonna love not having Scooters being started outside my apartment at 8:00. It'll make a change from the Lancs Alliance Scooter Weekenders where half of the punters are in bed by two.

Good job the dancefloor is massive too with some of the tunes I just know are in them boxes boys. :thumbup:

Cant think of a bigger dance floor at any venue on the scene ged,plus this room has an outstanding sound system.

Normally at the scooter doos if you want to stay on the sunday night you pay an extra £10 and you can stay overnight.

Just spoken with them and they said it will depend an availability but that it will be ok going on past weekenders.

so if your booking its worth asking,

I know some go home on sunday but a good few want to stay over.

Not long now!
