  1. Blimey! We are four! It really doesn't seem like four years since we did our first night at The Betsey. We were offered a couple of nights on a trial basis and after the first night the management said that (a) Our crowd were lovely and (b) They drank like nutters and could we discuss a year's worth of dates! Now here we are four years later. Time flies when you're having fun! Sharing the love will be special guest Nigel Flood who will be bringing very fine records to share with us. See you there! 7pm - midnightish and completely free to get in.
  2. The start of a new decade! The roaring twenties starts off with our special guest Jules Pallett. Those who heard his inspired set last year will know what to expect. Aided and abetted by the regulars in our lovely little soul cellar. See you down there! Kicks off at 7pm and goes on until Binsy's cab comes to decant him home - about midnight or thereabouts!
  3. It's that time of year again! Whether you've been naughty or nice we've got a special Yuletide treat for you in the form of two special guests who most definitely know the meaning of the word party! Step forward Andy Tats Taylor and Chris Forrest who are coming downstairs to Santa's Soul Grotto to fill you full of Christmas spirit. We kick off at 2pm and meander on until 10pm or thereabouts. Completely free as well. See you there!
  4. This month we're honoured to have Mr Ivor Jones as our special guest. Incredible taste and records to match. What's not to like? As always we're in the basement - that's where its at! Free entry kicking off at 7pm and going on until Binsy's cab shows up.
  5. October sees us welcome back our good friends Carib Soul as esteemed special guests. Expect their unique brand of sheer musical awesomeness in our small but jewel-like Soul Cellar. And you know what you can do with Sober October! 7pm - When Binsy's Cab arrives. Free entry.
  6. A warm welcome awaits in our lovely Soul Cellar. An intimate and ultimately fantastic space to hear the best in Rare Soul. In a break with tradition we're sporting a resident only lineup for September with Mr Jason Sharp bolstering the lineup. We're not sure if this constitutes foolish drunkenness or drunken foolishness. Should be good either way! Kicks off at 7pm and continues until Midnightish. Free entry.
  7. It's that time again! Come on down to our little soul cellar and experience the beauty and truth that is Soul Prescription. This month we welcome Mr Alan Handscombe as our special guest. Those that know of Alan's work will expect an eclectic mix of top quality sounds. You know it makes sense! Kicks off at 7pm and continues until Midnightish. Free entry.
  8. Thanks to everyone who made it down last month - yet another fun night! This month we welcome Blake Helliwell to our little cellar. We always enjoy Blake's inspired selections and we hope you will too. Free entry - 7pm - midnightish.
  9. It's that time again! More soul than you can shake a stick at with our esteemed special guest Mike Lofthouse. It promises to be another cracking night in our compact and bijoux soul cellar. 7pm - Midnightish. Free entry.
  10. Fine Soul music from whenever and wherever in our compact and bijou cellar bar. This month we welcome David Taylor as our special guest. A man who has tunes and knows how to use them! See you down there! 7pm onwards. Free entry as always.
  11. We were blown away by the amount of people that came to our third anniversary bash - it's really appreciated! This month we've got Lisa Wolverson as our special guest. Lisa writes: The first signs of my music and dancing addiction was very apparent at the tender age of four when my Dad lost me on a very busy Saturday afternoon in Dublin’s city centre , after sweating blood for nearly an hour he finally found me outside a record shop in the zone dancing with a crowd of people around me totally oblivious to everything… 9 years later I got my first real taste of the Soul Scene at Ireland’s first Northern Soul Club Bubbles ... this club was the catalyst to the start of me spinning a few tunes three years ago at Bubbles and since then Iv had the privilege to play at clubs like Dublin’s D8 & London’s Soul Giant. Excitement is an understatement of how much I’m looking forward to playing Soul Prescription this month.
  12. Times for Thursday: 7.00 -7.25 Paul 7.25 - 7.50 Mark 7.50 - 8.15 Anthony 8.15 - 8.55 Paul 8.55 - 9.55 John Pearson 9.55 - 10.35 Mark 10.35 - 11.15 Anthony 11.15 to end Mayhem.
  13. Well they do say that time flies when you're enjoying yourself and in this case time has definitely flown! Incredible to believe that it's three years since we persuaded The Betsey to let us put on a monthly Rare Soul night in their basement! What were they thinking? Joking aside - many thanks to them for making us welcome and allowing us to do our thing. Thanks guys! It's been a real blast and to help us celebrate we’ve secured the services of no less than Johnny Pearson to help us mark the occasion. Those that know Mr Pearson will know they are in for a treat. Those that don't - well you're in for a treat! See you down there! We kick off at 7pm and entry is completely free. https://www.facebook.com/events/2093453034035221/
  14. Cheers Rob! HNY to you too!
  15. Wow! The Christmas Alldayer was a true blast! Thanks to all that came and to The Pinches Brothers for coming down to amaze us with their records. This month we have Jules Pallett as our special guest. A man that is guaranteed to deliver and put his stamp on proceedings. I'll get my coat... 1900 - Midnightish. Free Entry.
