Picture a world with no more soul events

Martin.  If you hear of any illegal venue's. let me know. I'm definitely interested. Count me in 

Is the barn still going? Never been lucky enough for an invite myself. But I think there will be some large extended house parties. The afternighter thing has become crucial for a certain quarter of the scene.

Where would you put the ones coming in, year 7 and reception, for three months? The whole system is interdependent. What about university's? Just couldn't work I'm afraid.

They seem to be doing something close to my dad's idea

Next year’s A-levels and GCSEs in England could be pushed back later into the summer to allow more teaching time, says Education Secretary Gavin Williamson.

All of you that are eagerly awaiting getting back to your 'can't live without' weekly dose of beer , talc and oldies will probably not have to wait too much longer ..... :thumbup:

I fully expect to see an announcement soon from Kev Roberts regarding a new "norvern soul theme park" catering for those desperate to get back to it ... :wicked:

Never understood how the way some people live their life offends some who have different opinions. Tongue in cheek or not live your life and let others live theirs.

I’m all for letting others live their lives, but how many live their lives does affect my life, especially in a social setting.  That is the same for us all.

I understand that chalky, the crux of my reply was more concerning why people liking beer oldies or talc so offends anybody,  the argument has raged on here long enough without going into it, plenty of variety for everyone without snide comments. For the record i never use talc and like a mix of classics and new tunes so I'm only half heathen. 😉

two posts reference moderation unapproved as per our long running 'use the support forum for comments on moderation'

 

to the member - suggest that you use the 'flag this post' feature if you wish to pass on concerns about a post

trying to moderate other members yourself doesn't work that well and is best usually avoided

thanks

Hi Kev

Can we have some serious thoughts from you on what the future holds and how it may affect things please. as I mentioned before it's promoters such as yourself that have so much more knowledge

I haven’t commented because I simply don’t know. 
Clearly venues will start opening but it’s going to be awhile before the scene is anywhere near normal. 
Sadly I cannot report anything you don’t already know. 
One would assume some events will survive others will fall by the wayside. 
For now it’s a case of grin n bear it 😩

Who knows - maybe it'll put us all in reset as the initially shaky start to the 80s did...

Well Social Clubs can reopen as of today although no "live" music in front of an audience is allowed, I can see nothing specific in the guidance about dancing but it implies that it's not allowed.

The Government has said that they will provide further information next week for other venues although they haven't been explicit but the list of still closed venues includes nightclubs and dance studios which is more in line with the soul scene maybe? So perhaps there'll be a timetable for reopening.

My wild guess is the start of September.

This from The Blackpool Gazette 4th July

Councillors had been warned the council-owned venue (Winter Gradens) may have to cancel all its dance festivals this year, but currently this only refers to international events due to travel restrictions.

I think the larger venues certainly have more to loose by opening and more risk. The smaller social club type venues run by the members for the members may not have rent to pay, smaller financial commitments so can probably afford to open and just break even?

I run a small event along with a mate - about 130 in under normal circumstances - but I think we're probably looking at restricting numbers to about 60 when we can eventually get going again. We will just about break even on that - room hire & DJs etc to pay - if my pal & I can manage a couple of  drinks each out of it we'll be more than happy. Just to see everybody having a good night out will be enough of a reward - no idea when that will be though...….

Well at the moment there is a law that forbids gatherings of more than 30 and personally think there are more important things to worry about than a soul night.  Soul events and events of any kind notorious for spreading  whatever one person has and people cannot be trusted to stay away if they don't feel 100%.
