It is with much regret & sadness that I have to announce the cancellation of Essential Soul III. Despite 7 months of advertising,  we have been unable to attain sufficient ticket sales to allow the event to go ahead. I wish to thank both our PA's and all our DJ's for their support for this venture particularly to Colin Curtis who has been a great support from day 1 and has given me immense personal time.

To all those who have bought tickets in advance a full refund from Eventbrite will apply.

It's especially sad to me personally that yet again the locals have chosen to stay away from a contemporary soul night featuring an amazing line up of DJ's, they only seem to want the top 500 Northern soul oldies.

My last thanks goes to The Orchid Hotel who had offered me this amazing venue, hopefully given time we may be able to have a future event but for the time being I wish you all a Soulful Easter and best wishes for the rest of 2019.

Yours Soulfully

The Venue: The Orchid Hotel
34 Gervis Road, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH1 3DH

With outstanding road and rail links, Bournemouth is less than two hours from London, and easily accessible from the Midlands, the West Country and further afield.

In a quiet setting, minutes from the cliff-top on tree-lined Gervis Road, the Orchid is less than a ten minute walk from the town centre and beaches. And, less than a kilometre from the A338 Wessex Way, bus and railway stations, it’s also wonderfully accessible and easy to find.
