This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

Well done to Kev and Gloria for getting this up and running. Been to the last two and they've got better each year.

Beautiful venue and cracking sound system. Strictly original vinyl only and an across the board music policy in a fantastic room with a great dance floor.

Friendly crowd, [ well it would be with all that cider flowing ! ], look forward to seeing all the usual suspects.

blimey, this thread is a bit quiet, unlike the soulful nites we have at Barnstaple once it all gets going

who's coming - what are the requests [ including the ' don't plays ! ] - I love those

and is there a themed afternoon special this time ?? the twisted wheel Sat afternoon session last year with Derek from Bury as Cathy McGowan [ or was that just me ? ] was fantastic !

see you all Friday

i was really pleased when kev asked me to dj at the barnstaple weekender especially when i saw pete lyster and derrick higham were also down to appear..two

first class djs id played alongside before...the three and a half hour drive seemed to fly by and i was soon at my accommodation...the hotel venue was fully

booked so i found a very nice bed and breakfast 2 miles away...i was at the venue by 7pm on the thursday...an hour before start time as i was eager to see

for myself if the stories i had heard were true...they were..superb venue...very clean and with first class facilties including two swimming pools..one

inside..one out..spa,sauna and a very nice restaurant

the thursday night event went well although most of the guests wernt due down till the friday...by 1pm i was worn out and headed back to my digs...i was

awake by 7am and after a full english and numerous cups of tea i made my way back to the venue by 11am....ready for my midday opening spot....armed with far

too many tunes and my laptop..just in case i heard something i liked....there i stayed until 2.30am enjoying a great meal with TWINK and his mrs and some

great tuneage which i sort out after my 9pm spot...i was in bed by 3am but awoke at 5.30 to give the mrs her early morning call for her day trip to brum..

i was once again back at the venue very early to set up my laptop and go through the numerous sales boxes and memrobilla stalls....the laptop came in very

handy with ppl asking to check there email..keeping an eye on the footy scores and searching for some very nice toons id heard throughout the day...once

again a superb dinner spent in the great company of pete and cathy lyster and neil rushton...absolutely superb...by 2am i was flagging and after helping take

the equipment down and loading my own car it was back to my digs by 3am ready for an early start for the return journey home

all in all a very good weekend spent with some great ppl including derrick and sheila plus the others from bury...what a larf we had...ady heaney....steve

and sally..joe and sylvia...the wellingboro crew....the sussex posse and so many other ppl...sorry if ive missed you out

the venue is first class and big thanks to kev and gloria for all there hard work..to steve and sally for supplying dj equipment

one of the highlights for me was the mtown sesiion on saturday afternoon with pete lyster...derrick higham and joe dean spinning two hours of quality tunes
