Weekender: Bridlington Spa set to spin some soul

Bridlington Spa will be the life and soul of the town on the weekend of Friday 28 to Sunday 30 June, as a keenly anticipated event makes a welcome return.

The Northern Soul Weekender will feature six rooms of the best soul sounds from the early 1960s to current releases, with all genres covered by over 70 DJs spinning 100% vinyl.

With previous years proving a big hit, three-day passes are available at £30 to buy from Bridlington Spa box office.

Organiser Pat Brady said: “We are excited to return to this unique venue in 2019 to relive the classic memories of the past and experience the best of Northern Soul.

“The Bridlington weekender has an amazing atmosphere, with top DJs and sounds, which will attract an audience from all over the UK.”

Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The Northern Soul Weekender is a special event in Bridlington’s social calendar, as not only does it provide wonderful entertainment for those attending, but it is expected this year to attract around 2,000 people over three days.

“Bridlington Spa is an ideal venue for the soul weekender. Bridlington as a resort is also an ideal destination for the large numbers of people who will provide a huge boost to the local economy, as it did last year when the event attracted record figures.”
