    Had a little peek at the hall over the weekend, certainly a fabulous venue ! Great DJ line up giving their services free of charge for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice. See you there Rob
  5. Must thank the organisers for running a special raffle in aid of our Bluebell Wood Children's hospice Charity. Looks like its going to be a very special night, our own Pat Brady, with a rare appearance outside of Yorkshire, along side John "Everysound" Parker and Ted Massey, PLUS the lovely local boy Nev Shooter. Secuicor will be in attendance to guard the sounds ! Happy 11th Anniversary to this great Club See you there Rob
  6. Page 27 contains the "100 Club" feature I was talking to Derek about at the Wardrobe. Not the 100 Club in London, but records that were reaching 3 figures back then mid 80's ! Mind blowing stuff ! Rob
  7. A great read, a club I always love to visit. See ya Saturday ! Rob

  11. Scarborough Northern Soul Weekender 6th, 7th, 8th September 2019 All aboard for our 10th Anniversary weekender on the fabulous Yorkshire coast in glorious Scarborough. We are pleased to announce that all the remedial works are now complete on the Cliffs above the Spa Complex and the "Cliff lift" is fully operational once again directly in to the Spa after a £150,000 maintenance program. As in previous years we are holding a two roomed event in the Southside of the Spa Complex, upstairs the Ocean Ballroom features totally Northern Soul, with solid oldies, current floor fillers and favourites from the ‘60s & ‘70s. Whilst downstairs the Promenade Lounge plays host to our Soul Club showcases, Clubs already booked for this include The Wardrobe, Leeds, Crigg Soul Club, Wakefield, Soul in Selby, The Cask, Scarborough and Bassetlaw Soul Club, Worksop. Plus keep an eye on the soul press for others to be announced and confirmed closer to the date. All rooms will feature great soul music played off original issued 45s. This maintains the sound quality and ethos of this wonderful music. We have other sessions planned in the room including rare and underplayed sets and also a Wigan Casino tribute set from original Wigan DJ Pat Brady to celebrate our 10th Anniversary at the Spa Complex. As with all our events we put the emphasis on Yorkshire DJ’s, so you can expect to hear something away from the normal “formula” as at other venues. Pat Brady, Rob Wicks, John "Everysound" Parker, Derek Greenhoff, Rob Wigley, Graham Weaver, Russ Harvey, Jinxy, Martin Ward, Gibby, Roy Dale, Jim Hirst This is also the last, late summer September date that we had pre-booked; in 2020 the event will move back in to the Autumn and take place on Friday 30th October to the 1st November 2020 as will future events. If you’ve not been to our Scarborough Weekender before, the most convenient place for accommodation is on the South Cliff side of town which is directly above the Spa Complex. The cliff lift comes straight into the venue and is operational to suit the venue times. A weekend ticket is also available to use the service as many times as you like over the weekend and it is considerably cheaper than getting taxis. As in previous years the Spa will be having special drinks promotions available during the weekender, details are yet to be confirmed. Scarborough is a town rich in history, with the old castle, harbour and the Blue Flag beaches all there to explore. So when you're not dancing make the most of your weekend away from home. If you attended the 2018 weekender back in November, you may remember we were raising money for Sheffield Children’s Hospital, we managed to raise £600, plus with matching of £500 from Lloyds banking group made £1,100.00. A fantastic amount! Thank you, we shall be hoping to reach that sum once again at this year’s event. Tickets for the Scarborough Weekender are availablel still priced at only £30.00 for the whole weekend and also in person from all the DJs named on the flyer. You can buy directly from the Scarborough Spa Box Office on 01723 821 888 or via our website at https://www.scarboroughsoul.com for Paypal See you there! Rob Wigley For The North Yorkshire Soul Club.
