Cromer Soul Club

Cromer Soul Club celebrated its first anniversary on November 3 by hosting an all-day dance event at Cromer Community Centre, where it raised £500 for mental health charity, Young Minds.

Resident DJs Trevor Half-Nelson and Piers ‘Hitman’ Hawkins were joined by guests from other local clubs to spin nine hours of Northern and Motown vinyl for an appreciative crowd of soul fans from across the region.

“Our first event, a little over a year ago, attracted about 35 people, but we now normally welcome around 100 to our regular Keep the Faith Saturday club nights,” said Trevor Half-Nelson.

The club has raised about £3,000 over the past 12 months for a variety of charities.

“Young Minds seemed an appropriate choice for the November all-dayer because it was the charity we donated to from our very first club night,” explained Hitman Hawkins.

Cromer Soul Club’s next dance night takes place at Cromer Community Centre on December 15, 7.30pm-Midnight. Proceeds will go to Cromer Lifeboat Station. Tickets cost £5, and are available in advance from Cromer Tourist Information, Holt vinyl Vault, on-line at billetto.co.uk, or on the door.
