This Cleethorpes weekender will be the last one run by me. I’ve found it increasingly hard to handle the organising of the event (never a strong point!) and it’s tougher every year to find acts worthy of our stage; also the competition from other weekenders is off the scale. Luckily you lot are a terrifically loyal bunch and loads of you have rebooked not knowing who the hell will be singing, but knowing you’re going to have a great time anyway – witness the triumph of the “No Nighters” weekender of 2014.

But 25 events and being 65 years of age for me this summer means I will see if I can sell the business on to a sympathetic soul, who can handle the running better than me. There would be no point it going to a top 500 set-up as there are enough of those and you folk wouldn’t be arsed to attend such a do at a place with so many great rare soul memories.

I’ve had a few enquiries but been too rushed to attend to it properly; I’ll do that now so you can get the full story by June. I would be prepared to DJ and prop up the bar for any possible new promoter should they want me for a couple of years at least; hopefully that would make any handover more palatable to the regulars.

Like last year, this year we have gone back to an old favourite and friend, Sidney Barnes, who entertained us so fabulously way back in 2001. This time he is going to sing not only his own Northern hits like ‘I Hurt On The Other Side’, ‘Standing On Solid Ground’ and ‘Old Times’ but also a selection from his extensive songbook that he enriched ourmusical lives with. Songs like ‘Our Love Is In The Pocket’, ‘What Can I Do’-Billy Prophet, ‘Heart Trouble’ and ‘I’ll Bet You’ to name just a few.
