++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy    We have just returned from Soul in the Sun and wanted to say a very big thank you, we had a fantastic time, it is our third time and each time we think it cant get any better but it does.  Its just brilliant, lovely people, good music and sunshine what else could anyone want, we just cant find words to describe the fancy dress day it is the best day of the year, so thank you Eddy and Shirley and not to forget Jamie, we have already booked for November and cannot wait, so we wondered if you could play us Jackie Wilson, because of you,  to keep us going till November . Eddy please keep on doing what your doing because its great. 

thanks  Dave and Karen

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy,  Well, I just wanted to say that I had a really fantastic time at SITS 2012. Everyone was so friendly, the music was top notch, the venue was great and the beer was cheap. What more could a boy ask for? There's a song in there, I think!  I just wanted to thank you personally too as I know you must put a hell of a lot of work into organising these events.   Regards,  Paul

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy

I know its over a week since we spoke to you @ Vivo, however I wanted to add our comments regarding the event last week. We want to praise the event and speak out for the majority of people that absolutely loved “Soul in the Sun”

The music variety and tempo of the sessions was spot on ! Chill out sessions in the afternoon just whetted the appetite for the evening event.

The outside venue was an inspired idea and worked really well, the new DJ’s worked well and having  the two rooms just gave us a chance to see old friends and make new ones whist enjoying a different beat

Your overall enthusiasm and commitment to the event was excellent and already we cant wait for next year

Thanks again to you and all those that made the event so special

KTF  Bob & Diane

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy,

Just wanted to say what a brilliant week we had with you all at Tenerife , I don't think I have laughed and smiled as much for years . We loved the music policy , we both love northern and modern soul so for us the balance was just perfect ( my legs can't cope with northern all night , so a bit of two step swaying is always good ! ) Cant be with you in November but we will see you again in April , keep up the good work Eddy , love the show Sunday nights .

 Jo and Eddie

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Another Fantastic Soul in the Sun! (Best yet!). Made some great new friends & met up with some great old friends. You really can't beat it!  Ann

Been going ten years and this was the best yet.  Ian

Got to agree Ian, we've been to them all since 99, love the new set up at Vivos , can't wait for November Ann & Trevor

Where else could you spend a fabulous week filled with soul music, sunshine and 493 of the friendliest, happiest people ever?  We just have - KTF

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy, We came SITS for the 1st time but it deffo won't be the last.  Had a Fantastic time met some top people.  It's a long time since I've been to a proper Soul do but I've got the bug now there's no stopping me.

 I've not been anywhere for years because my wife wasn't into Northern but she loved it and she said were going every year from now on.  What a result. What more can you ask for so we'll be seeing you later in the New Year all the best hope you have a good one.

Allan

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hello Eddy

Just wanted to say what a great time we had in November, it was the first time we had been to Soul in the Sun, and we will definitely be there next year, it was just the best holiday we have had.

Des & Donna

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dear Eddy & Shirley,

As Soul in the Sun virgins we didn't know what to expect when we arrived at Vivos Club in Tenerife. Within minutes we were sitting with a smashing couple (Alan & Joan), and I'm sure we will become life long friends. The music was fantastic, lots of oldies but lots of other songs that we have never heard before. Jimmy has list as long as my arm of records that he is going to hunt down. The staff at Vivo were just great, the weather was great, the people were great but the fancy dress all dayer was out of this world. We were not going to bother dressing up as it was our first time, but decided to at the last minute. I only wish we had put more effort in as some of the costume ideas were amazing. It was the best day we have had for years, and the best holiday that we have ever had. We nearly came about 5 years ago but chickened out. Oh how we are regretting it now. Still we have just sent in our booking form for April and we don't intend missing another one. Thank you so much

Love Sarah & Jimmy

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy,       Just to say we really enjoyed the second week (didn’t go to the 1st week) and well done for all the effort involved.  Please pass our comments on to everyone at Vivos that we thought they were all excellent and very friendly people from the owner, the bar staff, glass collectors to the door.

All the best,   John  & Michelle

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy, Hope you have recovered from what must have been a very tiring fortnight for you.

Highlight for me in week one as always was the fancy dress. Some fantastic ideas and costumes. What a great day. Roll on April 

Paul

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy   We had another brilliant holiday and we can't wait for April (our holiday has been confirmed by our bosses) All the best to you and give our regards to Shirley and the rest of your family,
Hope to see you all soon Alex & Doris

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy   We can't thank you enough for a fantastic time we had at the November Soul in the Sun, where once again we made some great friends.

We loved every day and night session. but the fancy dress day was just amazing. We have already booked for April and cant wait. Dave & Kazz  

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hello Eddy,    Many thanks for a wonderful holiday, enjoyed it immensely, as always. It just seems to get better and better each year. Kev

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy,
I would like to say a Great Big thank you for what was a superb week. Just loved every minute of the music. Everyone is so friendly, not one bad word or a sniff of bad behaviour. This was only our second  Soul in the Sun but we will make every effort to repeat the experience.  I believe the words on one of the girls T Shirts summed up how our music makes you feel. " Northern Soul", If I have to explain it to you, then you wouldn't understand." It's like an itch you can't scratch.  Thanks again for all your efforts and those of all involved.    
             Best Wishes and regards ,    Danny and Helen

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Eddy,

Both Christine and myself thought this years SITS was the best we have been too. Vivo’s was perfect, the staff were spot on. The music was well balanced in my opinion and we went every night.

Keep up the good work.

Ian and Christine.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy, what a fabulous week we had in Tenerife, I was really pleased that the music covered all tastes in soul music, something for everybody....my most favourite day was the fancy dress...seeing those pirate lego guys coming over the bridge was  brilliant, the funniest thing ever........we met some wonderful new people as well as old friends......this is one week in the year that I can say is worth every penny or euro you spend...brilliant brilliant. 

 
We've started saving for the next gathering....long may it continue.      Love Marlene, John, Christine and Jimmy

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi eddy just wanted to say thanks for a great time at Soul in the Sun it was are first time and we really enjoyed it will be back again

Cheers Dave + Kazz

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

HI Eddy,

Me and my wife Geraldine went to soul in the sun for the first time and we loved every minute of it !!!!!   Cheers Dave

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dear Eddy   Just wanted to send this email to say thank you very much for a wonderful holiday 'Soul in the Sun'.  We know how hard you must have worked to make it such a success and run so smoothly.  It was our first 'Soul in the Sun' but it wont be our last.  We had a fantastic time, music excellent, dancing wonderful and lots of new good friends. The Sands Beach Resort was super and we really couldn't have asked for anymore. I think we laughed from the moment we arrived till the moment we got home.   Big pat on the back for all the hard work you and your family do for cancer research charity - it is a topic close to home.
 
Cheers  Teresa and Dennis
 

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy,   Just a short note to say thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.  As you know we were Soul in the Sun virgins and really didn’t know what to expect, but the holiday exceeded all our expectations.  The location was superb and the music fantastic and we are looking forward to coming again next year.

Look forward to hearing from you.     Sue

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy
Just wanted to e-mail you to thank you for a brilliant holiday. As you know it was the first time we have been to soul in the sun so we have nothing to compare it with. All I can say is it was one of the best experiences in my life. The fancy dress was out of this world, I don't know where people got their idea's from. We are already planning what to wear next year (sad isn't it!). You must have worked really hard to co-ordinate everything so well. We already know a few people who was there from different venues but we have made friends with so many other people who want to keep in touch, all the 'veteran soul in the sunners'  made us feel welcome and they said it was the best event that they had attended.
Regards,   Rhona and John

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy    Can I just say what a fantastic time was had by all in Lanzarote (I had been to a ‘Soul in the Sun’ a few years back in April 2005 so sort of knew what to expect, but nothing could prepare me for what was to come).  It was my first time, also for Pat, Michael & Paul, to a fancy dress and what a day! I saw the pictures on the web site they were fantastic. The boat trip was a day to remember as well .  I will certainly be there again next November and hoping to join you in April 08.  Thank you for all your hard work and effort that was put into organising it.

Best wishes Cath, Pat, Michael & Paul

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy & Shirley  I have to say that was the best holiday i have had in my life.  What fantastic people, music and resort, I hope you manage to get this place again.  I would also like to mention the Staff at Sands Beach, who were fantastic, always smiling and even dancing while serving you a pint. Please keep up the good work as Soul in the Sun is in one word  "OUTSTANDING"  Best regards    Brav

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dear Eddy

 
I hope you are feeling better?
Just a quick note to say what a great time we had as 'virgin'  Soul in the Sunners.  I am the northern soul fan in our house but my wife has been converted!!!! to the extent that after two days in Lanzarote she said that we are coming back next year and towards the end of the week when there was a track playing that I have she said that "we've" got this one haven't we.
 
kind regards
 
Keith

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Linda,

Now you are home we would like to say WHAT A BRILLIANT TIME ALAN AND I HAD  WITH YOU ALL. Everyone was so friendly. It was simply the best
holiday we have every had!

Soul in the sun has wonderful! A brilliant atmosphere and is very well organised from the flights to arrival. And of course the wonderful Eddy who is the key to holding all the Soulies together. Quick witted and the Brian Potter (Phoenix Club) of the event!

We loved the fancy dress! We were pleased that we were not the only Sheila's wheels, and to see my hubby doing the back drop in black high heels and a
pink sparkly dress was a sight many will not forget in a hurry! We are already planning "What the hell can we wear next year"?

Again THANK YOU SO MUCH...keep in touch    Kind regards  Lin and Alan
 

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy can I thank you for all your hard work to make this a brilliant week we loved it all.  Hope you can make it happen again, the venue & accommodation were brilliant. I never laughed so much from day 1 and met great soulies.  AWESOME THANK YOU Take care and all the best wishes for the future. John n Julie

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy and Shirley
 
What a fantastic first week in Lanzarote We didn't think it could get any better, but the music, accommodation, people, DJ's was absolutely fantastic.  I really do hope next year will be held in Lanzarote as it was just made for SITS.  The people are so friendly and happy.  We didn't want to come home.  The fancy dress day was also fantastic, especially when the firemen from Trumpton tried to rescue the surfers in the lake.  Good Luck and thanks again.  XXX   Jeanette and Chris

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy & Shirley   Thanks for a brilliant 2 weeks and we loved the set up at Sands Beach.  Carys celebrates her 50 birthday next year and the plan was to give Soul in the Sun as miss next November but she has enjoyed it so much again she has said to forget about the cruise we had talked about and wants to go to Soul in the Sun again I'm not even going to argue as i know where i would sooner be.   Take care thanks for all your hard work ,speak again .From Jeff and Carys

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy And Shirley,

Just wanted to add our comments about Lanzarote, We thought it was BLOODY FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!   We had a ball, As you say we made new friends, the apartments were great and the island was brilliant. We have never been there before but hope we all go again next year. Thanks once again for a wonderful Holiday Can't wait till next year   Love Di & Bri xx

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 
Eddy................Hope you managed to get some chill out time for yourself ( and Shirley !!) after the troops all left. Just wanted to drop you a line to say Thanks to you and all the DJs for a fantastic break once again.  We discovered some great new sounds and rediscovered some classic oldies too. The complex was first class and all the staff were friendly and helpful during our stay on the first week. Cheers once again mate and will catch up again soon.   Gill & Al 

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi eddy,  First of all thanks for a great week in Lanzarote.  I've been into northern since the casino days but have been off the scene for about 20 years.
we attended the second week and thought it was brilliant.   thanks.

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 Hi Eddy
 
I know you're still in Lanzarote, but just wanted to say that I have just had the best week of my life. This was my first Soul in the Sun, but it certainly won't be the last. Hope you're feeling better, and enjoyed a well earned rest.  Regards  Jean.

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

Eddy,  Just a quick mail to say thanks for putting together an excellent Soul in the Sun, hope next years November one is at the same place awesome.
met some nice people and had a fantastic time.  Roll on next year.  Thanks     Phil & Cath

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 
Hi Eddy & Shirley
 
Many thanks for organising such a fantastic event in Lanzarote...it was everything you described and more. We all could have been in heaven lying in the sun listening to some fantastic sounds but soon came back to earth arriving home in the snow.  Once again many thanks to you both and lets hope we can all return again next year.
ktf  David,  Gill,  Jan & Graham

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hiya Eddy,
 
Just wanted to say what a brill time me and my fella Tony had at Lanzarote.  We were wishing we had gone for 2 weeks but never mind - there's always next time!  We met loads of nice peeps and just had a really fun time - especially on the Wednesday fancy dress day -  I was thinking up ideas for next time, as we were boring gits this time (well, we were virgins) but seriously, we couldn't have wished for a better holiday really.  I liked chilling in the afternoon listening to chilled out soul tunes lazing on a sun lounger next to the pool sipping a nice chilled drink!  mmmm - I'm there now lol!   thanks Eddy - and look forward to another Lanzarote next year maybe? Sue

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy,  a MASSIVE thank you to you for organising such a fantastic 2 weeks. The venue was superb and the people fantastic. This was my 3rd Soul in the Sun and by
Hi Eddy
I cant tell you what a fantastic time I had in Lanzarote.  I went for the 2nd week. It was my first SITS but will not be my last.  Thanks for organising it all. The venue, accommodation, music, and great people made it something Ill never forget and the fancy dress day I didn't stop laughing!!
See you in Tenerife April, 2008.  Love Carol

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hello Eddy and Shirley,
 
Thank you so very much for, once again, giving me a holiday I will treasure always. I know there is an awful lot of hard work that goes on for months and months and some of it very trying I guess.  However it worked, everything about it was fantastic and here's to next year. Once again thank you for everything you do to brighten peoples lives.
Love   Susan xx

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy  We would like to tell you what a fantastic week 1 we had in Soul in the Sun. We enjoyed last years in Tenerife but this years out shone that by a country mile. What can we say about the venue but outstanding in everything. The music was out of this world very across the board'  I am not into Modern a great deal but it was brilliant to go downstairs for a change to listen to it and really enjoyed it very much.  The fancy dress well not much to add to what you have said * Brilliant* we dressed up for the first time in easy get up ( Blues Brother ) but we really felt part of it wished we did it last year.  Thank you Eddy and Sugarlips and to all the DJ's for a fantastic holiday of a lifetime in my books. Well done Eddy and Sugarlips for great organisation  and hard work and I am praying that it will be there again next. PS its the only time I have come back of a holiday so knackered after doing 7 nights till 3am or a bit longer in the morning.  Thanks Dave and John 

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy

Now we have got our breath back I’m just sending this E mail as a thank you for all the hard work you and the team put into soul in the sun to make it a fantastic success, top notch accommodation at the Flamingo Suites, excellent DJ's,  superb venues,  brilliant weather, and best of all super soul sounds all the way.

Can”t wait for Lanzerote in November, only 187 sleeps away.      Once again thanks for everything and remember keep on keeping on .

                         cheers Dave & Ann

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Eddy and Sugar-lips,  I hope you and your family had a relaxing few days after all the hustle of the week. As a soul in the sun first
 timer and travelling by myself, I had a great  week. Great music, Great venues, Great people. I made loads  of friends and contacts for the future. If you get  chance pass my thanks onto Willy and his staff, they  were the best of hosts. Early one morning they were  looking through the photo albums naming everyone by  the drinks they ordered. Glad to see the next spring  week  is fixed up already will be booking, can't
 wait. Once again thanks to all the soulies look forward  to seeing you all next year.
 Dave

 

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Dear Eddy and Sugarlips
 
Just wanted to thank you for what was a brilliant time last week in Tenerife.   As you know it was our first time and we enjoyed every minute.  Didn't see much of Tenerife but what the hell!    We just switched off for the whole week and it was great.  All the DJ's were fantastic and the music was spot on.  It was good to have such a cross section.   Were a bit deprived here in the South for events and have to travel around quite a bit.   So for us last week we just couldn't get enough.  It was also good to see the youngsters enjoying and dancing to the music.  I don't know the low down on old Jungle Jim, but all I can say is he had us in stitches one evening as MC Hot Dog.   Both venues were really good. Cant wait till November and Lanzarote.  Wish we'd booked for 2 weeks now, but I'm not sure the liver or the wallet would stand up to it!!!!!
 
Once again, many thanks.  (Hope you enjoyed the rest of your hols).    Fiona & Bill

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Eddy,   Just arrived home after our 1st Soul in the Sun.   We had a great time and are looking forward to Lanzarote in November. !!!

 

Thanks for all your hard work in making it a memorable time for all " Sunners",   Keep the Faith Mate and see you in Nantwich in May.
 
Cheers........Al & Gill

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy
 
Just got back from our 1st Soul in the Sun & would like to say a big thank you to yourself & all the DJ's for making it one of the best holidays we've had.

 

Met so many nice people.  See you next year as we are hooked. We have booked for Lanzarote, can't wait..
 
Ian & Viv

Hi Eddy,  We  really enjoyed it again this April,  the best one ever!!!   Linda & Gary

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy and Sugarlips,    Were just coming down to earth after a soulful week in Tenereife.  It was wicked.

Great music - Great crowd.    Soul as  deep as you like it and then some !!!.   "We wanna  go back there again!"

All the best,     KTF     Ray and Lydia

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Eddy,
         Just a note to say what a great time we had in Tenerife and to thank you for personally ensuring Jane and I enjoyed or first Soul in the Sun.

Tony and Jane
 

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi Eddy and Shirley,

 Just had to contact you to say a great big THANKS for my first ever Soul in the Sun experience and the best holiday I’ve ever had. It was in a word “Awesome”, the venues, the great people and of course the music. We met and made lots of new friends who we are going to keep in touch with back in England.

If I had to pick the highlight of the holiday it would have to be the Monday fancy dress day, it has to be experienced to be believed! 400 people in fancy dress doing the conga along the beach front!

All the holiday makers and locals were “gob smacked” at that sight and so was I, and better still I was part of the show . The only thing that was missing for me was the chance to go back in time and attend all the previous “Soul in the Suns” that I have missed.

 A Big Thanks again for everything and all your hard work putting it all together.

See you next November! J  Kev (Blackpool)

It was my first time for Soul in the Sun and I didn't realise you could have so much fun with your clothes on. It was absolutely fabulous all week, and have never met so many nice people.  See you next year as I'm hooked.

We made load's of new friend's in Tenerife and have kept in touch, people from North Devon, Crewe, Blackpool, Sunderland also a group from our area, who we've seen at Northern night's but never really spoke to, now were really good friend's.
 

 We are both looking forward to next November, so would you please I-mail us as soon as you have any info.

Hi Eddy,
It's over a week since we returned  we are both still missing Soul in The Sun. We had a fantastic time and met some brilliant people. We both thought that the music,  the people and the buzz was brilliant. Book us in for next November we would not miss it for anything.

Hi Eddy, 

Just a note to say we had the best holiday ever we only did the first week but wished we had booked for two, we really didn't want to go home this was our first Soul in the Sun and the start of many more.  Could you please let me know the dates for November 2006 please and when would you want payment for them.  Again many thanks for a great time

Hi Eddy,

 
What can I say, S.I.T.S. this year was absolutely brilliant, we all had a massive blast and can't thank you enough for all your hard work on our behalf,  you said you thought it would be the best ever,  you were right. 

Tommy Hunt was a wonderful bonus this year, I was there for every performance either scheduled or impromptu and thought he was magnificent. It has been superb at The Soul Seller but we are really looking forward to the new venue and can't wait already until next November

very best wishes,
 
Steve M

Eddy,

 
Thanks for the news letter.
 
Can I just say a very big thank you for  the Soul in the Sun holiday in November 2005. Myself and Allison attended the second week and I must say it was mind blowing. We have had many great holidays, travelling as far as Florida and the Caribbean, All fantastic, but overall not a patch on SOUL IN THE SUN. Great weather great people and great music. All made possible because of your total commitment. You should be proud of yourself.

Steve & Alison

Eddy,
Just wanted to say thank you for Soul in the Sun, we went for our first time in April and it was fantastic...a week of sun, sea, sand and soul,  it just doesn't get any better than that.
 

 The whole atmosphere was so relaxed with 200+ like minded people all enjoying the music we all love, We met a lot of new friends with whom we have had some great soul nights since our return. Soul in the Sun  was my 1st trip abroad and obviously my 1st experience of flying which literally brought tears to my eyes!!!!   not ashamed to admit I cried during take off but it was worth every missed heartbeat and racing pulse, I also cried on the way home but for different reasons this was by far one of the most memorable experiences of my life.

 

  We are already planning for March would like to of gone again in Nov but till I'm on a DJ's wages !  1 holiday a year will have to do !!!!! looking forward to the reunion in Kendal in July not quite Tenerife eh  but just as good

Dear  Eddy and  Shirley,  

What  an  absolute   humdinger  of  a  week,  the  people,  the  weather,  the  records  and  the  fantastic  atmosphere  in  the  Soul  Seller  will  never  be  forgotten  by  us,  made  loads  of  new  friends  who  just  like  us  where  soul  crazy.   thanks  for  everything  you  did  you  two,  good  luck  and  we'll  speak  soon.  Geoff  and  Jean  from   WIGAN

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hello Eddy, hope you have fully recovered from April SITS.

We had an absolutely brilliant time.  All the previous reviews I have read mirror exactly ‘what it’s like’.  Brilliant music, atmosphere, people etc.  We have been in regular contact with the friends we have made arranging to go the Soul do’s in Kendal, Wigan, Nantwich etc.

But the big question is, are there still places available for November.

Sharon

Hi Eddy and Sugarlips


Hope you're both back home safely in the UK now and just a quick note to say "Thanks" for a brilliant week in Tenerife.  Paul and I met loads of new "Sunners" and are looking forward to seeing them around the country when we visit their venues.

Please pass on our thanks to all the DJs for taking the time to keep us all entertained.

Looking forward to seeing you both soon.

Luv                   PAUL & JEAN

Thanks Eddy,

                  Just arrived back from far the best holiday of my life.  It had the lot. Music . . .  fantastic. People . . .  some of the best you would ever hope to meet. The beer flowed by the gallon. This was our first time. I had mixed feelings of what to expect. Is it to poppy, to many handbags. If anybody is to think that, forget it. The policy is quite truly across the board. There is something for everyone.
 
.See you soon......Mike n Jan Cog

Hi Eddy,

Thank you!

Hi Eddy,

What a fantastic Time Terry and I had at Soul in the Sun . As predicted we met some really nice people.

We did not know anyone when we went so a little apprehensive. Should not have worried.

Once again  Thank you so much for letting us have tickets at such late notice. 

Karen and Terry,  Oxfordshire.

Dear Eddy,

 We would love to re-book the 2nd week in November next year,  it was our first time at S.I.T.S this year, and we had a fantastic time. 

Even the overcast weather couldn't disappoint, as we had so much fun at the Soul Seller. 

Thank you very much for your hard work (it's certainly paid off), professionally run and organised, and a truly fantastic, friendly, experience for us.

Kind regards    Jools
