  1. BANBURY SOUL CLUB - FIRST EVENT OF 2018

    BANBURY SOUL CLUB - FIRST EVENT OF 2018 Saturday January 6th 2018 20.00 - 01.00 Our 14th Anniversary in November 2017 was the last event at the General Foods Sports and Social Club. Unrealistic and increasing hire charges and no willingness to do any bar price promotions meant we were forced into a situation of moving yet again. Maintaining the entrance fee at £5.00 has always been our primary objective. It was either move or increase the door tax which none of us were happy to do. So it's back to the Trades and Labour Club who, after a change in Committee ,approached the Soul Club asking us to return. So their timing was impeccable. Hopefully this will be the very last time we have to move. We hope you will all support us in this move we have been forced to make. From January 2018 there will be four nights of Northern Soul and Motown promoted by Banbury Soul Club. With a change of venue we are back to an across the board music policy. Expect to hear sounds from the last 50 years covering all genres, tempos and styles. Dance off the Christmas excesses and relive memories from all the classic venues long since gone. For those that haven't been to the club before. Free car parking right next door. Well stocked bar at realistic Labour club prices. And most importantly it has a wooden dance floor with a raised stage and the acoustics are brilliant. Another plus is its all on ground floor level with no stairs to contend with. Hopefully this will give you an idea of the layout and how it’s ideally suited for a night of soul music. In summary this will genuinely be a “something for everyone” evening. Charlie, Steve, Tom and Dave will be playing their own selections of danceable soul music to guarantee a brilliant night. So make sure you come along and enjoy a superb night’s entertainment for only £5. PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO HEALTH & SAFETY CONCERNS THE LABOUR CLUB DOES NOT ALLOW THE USE OT TALC. PLEASE RESPECT THIS. THANKS We will confirm the other three Banbury Soul Club dates as soon as possible. We are actively trying to avoid clashes with other local soul nights. Pay on the door is still only £5.00.

  12. BANBURY SOUL CLUB - MOTOWN SPECIAL

    Hi everyone and welcome to the third Banbury Soul Club event of 2017. Saturday 2nd September 2017 8pm - 1am. General Foods Sports and Social Club. Castle Quays Banbury Oxon OX16 2PA Banbury Soul Club's next promotion on Saturday 2nd September 2017 is a special charity event and will be a departure from our Northern Soul Oldies policy. This promotion is to celebrate the musical heritage of Motown records. This will be a charity night in aid of our local Banbury hospital, The Horton General. As with lots of other cutbacks across the country this hospital is under threat of closure. Details at the "Hands off our Horton" at the link below. http://www.keepthehortongeneral.org/home.html As we are all Banbury locals who have used this hospital for ourselves, our children, parents, friends and relatives we all agreed we need to support this local service in any way we can. So there will be a sizable donation to the "Fighting Fund" if we have a successful night. This event will be a 100% Motown night through to 1.00am Sunday morning. Expect to hear the classics tunes we all grew up with but also some interesting obscurities, rarities and unissued tracks. What we can guarantee is all tunes played will be for your enjoyment and have that danceability factor that was synonymous with the Motown sound, the Sound of Young America. The resident DJ's Charlie, Steve, Tom and Gilko will keep the floor bouncing until the end of the night. Please feel free to ask for requests of your favourite Motown sounds. And we will certainly try to oblige and play them. But with such a musical catalogue I suspect we will run out of time rather than manage to play everything we would like too. So please come along and support this worthy cause. But more importantly enjoy the night listening and dancing to the memories created by the unique Motown Sound. For those that haven’t been before this really is a superb venue. An upstairs ballroom with a sprung wooden floor and a raised stage. A separate bar area which is fully stocked and at club prices. Comfortable seating and also plenty of space for record dealers. (No charge for Sales tables at our venue) Free parking just a minutes' walk away. PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO H&S CONCERNS THE CLUB OWNERS HAVE INTRODUCED A TOTAL BAN ON THE USE OF TALC. Anyway hope to see you all on Saturday 2nd September 2017 8pm - 1am. Admission is still just £5.

Castle Quays Banbury Oxon OX16 2PA For those that don't know the Music Policy has changed for all Banbury Soul Club events. All events will be strictly "Oldies" only. The music played will now be one hundred per cent Northern Soul ‘Oldies’ and Motown. But between the DJ’s they have an amazing collection of original Northern Soul Oldies, which they never get the chance to play. So they are very excited and really looking forward to playing all your favourites from 8.00pm to 1.00am, non-stop! There will be no lesser knowns or underplayed at the beginning: it will be ‘full’ on from 8.00pm. The play list will be your favourite sounds from the Golden Age of Northern Soul and the Classic Clubs where they were discovered. The Torch, The Twisted Wheel, Catacombs, Blackpool Mecca , Wigan Casino, Yate, Cleethorpes and Stafford. After our very successful first event in January we are very pleased to confirm and welcome back to Banbury Soul Club our guest DJ for the night, Derek Mead. Derek has been a stalwart of the scene since the so called Golden Years. DJ'ing at venues including Bisley , Stoke Kings Hall, Blackpool Weekender and Prestatyn. So Derek has a wealth of experience and knows exactly what is required to keep the dance floor moving. Our warm up DJ for the evening is Anthony Zastawny aka Tony MK. Tony is a resident DJ at Towcester Soul Club and has been a long term collector for many years. He will start the proceedings with his selections of up-tempo dancers to get everyone fired up for a night of banging oldies. For those that haven’t been before this really is a superb venue. An upstairs ballroom with a sprung wooden floor and a raised stage. A separate bar area which is fully stocked and at club prices. Comfortable seating and also plenty of space for record dealers. (No charge for Sales tables at our venue) Free parking just a minutes' walk away. PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO H&S CONCERNS THE CLUB OWNERS HAVE INTRODUCED A TOTAL BAN ON THE USE OF TALC.

  14. BANBURY SOUL CLUB FIRST EVENT OF 2017 Saturday 7th January 2017 - 8pm to 1am General Foods Sports and Social Club. Castle Quays Banbury Oxon OX16 2PA Our 13th Anniversary in November was the last event at the Trades & Labour Club. The T & L Members informed the Committee they want to use the Club all year round. We moved to the Labour Club because we were told General Foods Sports & Social Club was closing down under the new Banbury Quayside development. Well that has changed and General Foods Club is not closing. So fortunately not only did we get invited back but the timing couldn't have been better. But now the challenge is to fill this large venue. From January 2017 there will be four nights of Northern Soul and Motown promoted by Banbury Soul Club. The biggest change will be the music policy. All events for 2017 will be strictly "Oldies" only. The music played will now be one hundred per cent Northern Soul ‘Oldies’ and Motown. Over the years our music policy has always been across the board. But between the DJ’s they have an amazing collection of original Northern Soul Oldies, which they never get the chance to play. So they are very excited and really looking forward to playing all your favourites from 8.00pm to 1.00am, non-stop! There will be no lesser knowns or underplayed at the beginning: it will be ‘full’ on from 8.00pm. The play list will be your favourite sounds from the Golden Age of Northern Soul and the Classic Clubs where they were discovered. The Torch, The Twisted Wheel, Catacombs, Blackpool Mecca , Wigan Casino, Yate, Cleethorpes and Stafford. So make sure you get there early to get your seats. Because you will love and be surprised at the vast collection of tunes the DJ's have. We will also be bringing in like-minded guest DJ’s to complement our selections. So we now need all your help to promote the new venue and change of music policy. Oldies nights are very popular and we want to get the word out. As a Club we take no money apart from running expenses. We are very proud that over the years your £5’s have gone to local charities and some overseas charities as well. We are a non-profit making club and we put the nights on for everyone to have a great time. Here are the 2017 dates for the Banbury Soul Club Northern Soul Oldies Nights: Saturday 7th January 2017 Saturday 1st April 2017 Saturday 2nd September 2017 Saturday 4th November 2017 – 14th Anniversary Pay on the door is still only £5.00.
