On behalf of Soul Purpose, Sam and myself would like to clarify something for everyone with regards to Mark Goddard’s involvement with the Christmas 2016 event.

It goes without saying that it was always our intention that any new event under the Soul Purpose banner would be promoted, as was always the case in the past, by the three original promoters: Sam, Mark G and myself.  In fact, from my own personal point of view my attitude was that it would never happen were this not the case.

So, as you all know by now public demand has meant that we decided to resurrect Soul Purpose for a one-off event at Christmas 2016, and in the first instance the agreement was for all three of us to be involved.

Fast forward some weeks from that decision and Mark G informed us that he would rather not be involved due to ever-demanding work commitments.  It is worthy of note that he actually declared that he couldn’t put the kind of effort into it in the months leading up to the gig that the gig deserved.  I think that’s admirable and is to be commended.

So, we have to accept Mark’s decision and as I eluded to before, I don’t think that this Christmas 2016 event would be happening if Mark’s absence had been clear at the outset.  But by the time we knew about this we had already made the commitment, so go ahead it will.

Of course we thank Mark for all his contributions in the past to what became one of the UK’s premier nights out on the soul calendar.  Should we wish to run a Soul Purpose event beyond 2016 (and I can assure you there is NO plan to at this point) then we would like to think that this would only ever happen if all three of us could be involved: it was OUR thing and that’s the way it should stay.

We hope that Mark will be at the Christmas event and he assures us that is his plan, other commitments permitting.

See you on December 30th folks………….it’s gonna be a party!!

After the bustle of New Years Eve it's time for a brief but proper thank you to everyone involved in Friday's Soul Purpose Christmas Special.

We always said we wouldn't do Soul Purpose again, but it's nice to be able to say that public demand led us to the decision at the turn of last year to hold a one-off Christmas Special in 2016.

So the plans were made and Friday saw almost 300 people pack Sketchley Grange for what turned out to be a fabulous session. So many people to thank..........

Firstly the DJ's in both rooms who all delivered an unrivaled cross-spectrum of music, be it the latest and greatest off a memory stick or hens-teeth rare vinyl. Musically superb. Of course in the big room we had Glenn Worthington on percussion too, always a great addition.

Also to Andrew Baskett and Paul Garland and the tractor boys for the sound in the two rooms.....to partner in crime Sam for all her hard work too..........a relentless bundle of energy!!

Lastly but by no means least YOU, the people who demanded it, and subsequently supported it. I'd like to think that we gave you a night to remember and judging by the smiles and comments received I think we did just that. One guy was there for the first time and was literally on pins, telling me how amazing it was and "how have I never been here before?!!"

Sincerely, thank you all for your support, whether involved behind the scenes and/or on the day, or whether simply there to enjoy proceedings.

Finally, I think Paul recorded most of the night so hopefully I can get access to those recordings to share them with you over the coming days and weeks.

Happy New Year to you all and see you around somewhere soon!   Be safe xx

 

Cheers,

Mark R
