Good news for the original Skeggy Weekender then 😉

God hates tossers who deliberately clash with another long standing event 

I am not gloating but yes I do believe there should be just one weekender in one town on the same weekend.  Its about morals and showing some respect something Russ doesn’t do.  Just like he put a nig

Hi , Does anyone know the reason why butlins is not running the soul survivors weekend for 2020, absalutly gutted that its not on.

I was told they weren’t making enough money ?

They said that they can’t fit it into their calendar, but as Jazz said there are probably financial reasons behind their decision.

I was told more or less same thing,that it was down to numbers, soul survivors weekend about 3to 3,500 but the weekends like 70,s 80,s revival type weekend gets about 6,000 people so I guess about making money.Really disappointed its finished.

Maybe there's more than one reason.

Are the numbers down because the Weekenders have become expensive to attend? Butlin's on site amenities can be pricey.

Are the numbers down because the formula has become old hat and tired?

Or....are the numbers down because age (and infirmity) is finally taking it's toll on the punters?

God also hates Tossers who think only one event is permitted per town 

I am not gloating but yes I do believe there should be just one weekender in one town on the same weekend.  Its about morals and showing some respect something Russ doesn’t do.  Just like he put a nighter in in Wigan on the same night as an established nighter recently.

I fully understand, I have attended the original on quite a few occasions and also tried butlins they are like chalk and cheese,( no pun intended) butlins isn't a soul weekender as such but more of a drinkfest with the top 500 thrown in

To be honest chalky the Butlins event would do little in affecting the original soul weekend,  totally different types of weekend. Went once but not my cup of tea not really got the feel of a Newquay or whitby but many enjoyed it so each to their own.

Was it Butlins who decided to not carry on, or the promoter.

It makes a difference.

I went once. I'm not sure you could commercialise an event any more than this. If you forgot your uniform, no worries, you could buy one there.

Certainly had its devotees, and yes very similar to Whitby.

As much as events like this get berated for a multitude of reasons, the punters who attend regularly love it.

For sure it's not ALL about the music for them.

Apparently a big scrap there this weekend and a death (fell mover or off the balcony), second one at Butlins this year apparently.

This is what you get when you let the divs in and a corporate puts on an event with no knowledge of the scene.
