2nd December 2023

SOLD OUT

Get yer dancin’ shoes on for a night of proper 60’s soul and RnB music played on the original vinyl releases.

 
The Harrogate Cheltenham Club was the town’s first soul/ RnB venue between 1967 and 1969. The music played there was similar to the famous Twisted Wheel Club in Manchester, and the regular Friday, Saturday and Sunday night dances attracted dancers and music fans from all over Yorkshire and beyond.
 
This is  the fifth annual Cheltenham reunion event held at Ripley Town Hall, the iconic home of Ripley Live (formerly Ripley Blues). The venue has hosted a number of live RnB acts in previous years, including Steve Cropper, of Booker T & MG’s fame, Georgie Fame, and Snake Davis. The venue has an excellent polished wooden floor ideal for all those soul dance moves.
 
All the tunes will be played on the original vinyl releases by former Cheltenham Club DJ Michael Lowcock and Ian Smith, DJ at Harrogate Northern Soul Club, and will be those that dancers heard at the original venue.
 
Book your place in advance on the Ripley live site at £8 (including booking fee). Advance booking is recommended as places will be limited for dancer comfort. Any unsold places will be available on the night at £10. All proceeds, after the concessionary hire of the hall, go to the Harrogate branch of Parkinsons UK. 
 
Ripley Town Hall is just off the A61 between Harrogate and Ripon with frequent and late buses running in both directions.
 
It promises to be a fun and memorable evening. Fully stocked licence bar and raffle, in aid of Parkinsons UK, will be available.



Saturday 2nd December 2023 from 7.30 till late.
