    Sheffield's Darnall Horti’ Closed

    Thanks Andy, went to Don McBlade's do in Beverly recently, brilliant. And we now have a growing number of rarer chill-out Sundays in Sheffield (alongside the Mulberry), though no evening events, so far as I know. Might make Dottie's one day, though without our own transport it's a bit awkward. Fingers crossed. 🙂

    Sheffield's Darnall Horti’ Closed

    Thanks Tezza, very much appreciated. Your sentiments here echo the reasons why we started the Horti' off in the first place. Hopefully something will take its place sooner rather than later. For the time being it looks like either the same old same old, or endless reruns of Coronation Street on the idiot box. 😂 In fairness, I detect signs that some people are starting the grasp what we were doing. With luck they'll develop further, and we can get back to real soul music. One or two small venues, and a small number of DJs are collecting and daring to play 'something different'. They'll certainly get my support.

    What is it they say - 'nostalgia ain't what it used to be.' 😂

    Sheffield's Darnall Horti’ Closed

    It is with great regret that we must announce that Darnall Horti’ Soul Club has spun its last record. What began as an experiment, nine and a half years ago, to see if there was a market for rarer and underplayed soul music, led to many, many brilliant nights with a regular, dedicated audience of knowledgeable soul fans. Those same soul fans have also helped raise many hundreds of pounds for various charities over the years. You have all been so generous. But all these things have a shelf-life, and lately numbers have diminished sharply: so sharply, in fact, that maintaining the night is no longer viable. May we thank all those who came along to make our events so very special, and, of course, to all those brilliant collectors and DJs who dug deep to find those elusive tracks that we enjoyed so much. We hope we will see you all somewhere soon. The Horti’ Crew.

    Sheffield Sunday Soul Sessions at the Mulberry Tavern

    What a Summer this has turned out to be :-). Definitely time for a cool beer and some equally cool tunes to go with it., This month, here at the Mulberry we bring you special guest DJs, Dave and Bri Pinches; two top spinners with an unbelievable collection that you just don't want to miss. We're in for another top day of the best rare and underplayed soul music around. We guarantee that every record will be original vinyl: no boots, no modern re-issues, no CDs and no MP3s, just the real deal, always. So, two top spinners alongside residents Mark, Gary and John, and we may add to that DJ list. Kick off is around 2.00pm and we finish around 8.00pm, and entry is absolutely free. So why not come along and enjoy great music, great people and some quality beers at excellent prices?

    Sheffield Sunday Soul Sessions at the Mulberry Tavern

    Hi all, the question has been raised about the World Cup final being played on the same day as SSSS. I've exchanged messages with Fee from the Mulberry, and the plan at the moment is to open up the downstairs event room with a large TV screen for footie fans in general. and have it on the telly upstairs but without sound, so we can play our stuff and watch the match if we want. Sounds good to me.

    Darnall Horti' Soul Club

    Looking forward to our July event at Sheffield's number one OVO soul night. It's not a 'modern' night, or a 'crossover' night or an 'oldies' night. It's a SOUL NIGHT. We don't even use the term 'Northern'. If this sounds like your thing, why not come along and give us a try? For our July 20th event we welcome special guest, JULIA NICOLL. Julia is yet another fresh face behind the Horti' decks, our latest opportunity to hear something new and different. We will continue to run on the 3rd Friday of the month, from 8.00pm to 12.30am and entry is still only £3. Why not come along and enjoy great and knowledgeable company, excellent beers and a warm, friendly atmosphere.

    Back To The Roots at the Catholic Club

    After what seems like forever, we can announce that our August 25th event is on. We are in for a Summer blast of quality R&B and related sounds, the authentic vibe of 50s and 60s music. We are proud to reveal our special guests for the night will be Martyn Bird and John Parker. As usual we kick of at 8.00pm and finish around 12.30am. Entrance is absolutely free. For anyone who hasn't been before, you won't be disappointed. This is a quality venue with a good dance-floor and great range of excellent beers. Why not come and join in the fun.
