Soul in the Sun August Newsletter
Well it’s been a mixed Summer so far, red hot then an odd day torrential rain.
Soul wise there’s not a lot to report at the moment, most of us have been enjoying the sunshine
While our gardens have been enjoying the rain!
Soul in the Sun November 2nd, 2018
We are in the final stages of organising our November holiday, Gordon and I are working on the programme, the wristbands have been ordered and the DJs have been informed ( if you were expecting to DJ for us and I haven’t been in touch, you need to Email me NOW)
Over the next 3 months I will be in touch with you lots of times, including in October our infamous “ Last Email before we go” which covers everything you will need to know about Soul in the Sun
Don’t forget the last day for credits or refunds is September 1st, 2018. Anyone who cancels after September 1st will be donating their money to Cancer Research, but they must let me know.
Also anyone who simply doesn’t show up in Tenerife and has not let me know will be removed from our mailing list.
As you know we have sold out of passes for November’s Soul in the Sun, in fact we sold out at the end of April.
After talking to the Spanish security and owners of Vivo we have agreed that it is Ok to sell a small number (maximum 50) four day passes.
These are on the ‘quieter nights’ when we expect around 700. These wristbands will be a different colour, and can be used only at the following times (daytime sessions 1pm – 5pm evening sessions 8pm till 2am)
Thursday 1st November – evening -- Friday 2nd November - daytime & evening -- Saturday 3rd November – daytime -- Sunday 4th November – daytime -- Monday 5th November – evening
Tuesday 6th November - daytime & evening -- Wednesday 7th November - daytime & evening -- Thursday 8th November – daytime -- Friday 9th November - evening
N.B. Should the Fancy Dress on Monday afternoon be postponed because of imminent rain (unlikely) you will be allowed in on Monday, but not for the rearranged date
The “four day” passes are £30 each and can be paid by BACS or PayPal (details below)cancellation policy is the same as full passes, no refunds or credits after September 1st
If, during the holiday I hear of enough people going home before the last night (Thursday) I will notify you via Facebook that you are allowed in for our last night, but no promises
You need to email me for details on how to pay
Soul in the Sun April 5th , 2019
As expected the bookings have been great again this year, and we are way up on the same time last year.
Please don’t leave it too late, there will be no 4 day passes in April.
A booking form is attached, but if you pay by BACs or PayPal I don’t need it. I must have the names and any Email addresses though
So Soulful 70’s
Haven’t had one for a while so we are all looking forward to this one
Pen Drives - £28
For the past year I have been selling pen drives and the response has been fantastic. Each Pen Drive has around 1875 soul tunes on.
I have mixed them up completely so that you can listen to a Northern track, a Motown track, Modern Soul, Commercial Soul & 70’s Soul Classic one after the other
Let me tell you what you can do with it.
1) Many new cars now don’t have CD players, but instead a USB port. Just plug it in there and you have approximately 90 hours of listening ( based on 3 mins per tune)
2) Download them on your computer and play through iTunes or whatever other programme you choose.
Once you have done this you can wipe it clean and you have a 8 GB pen drive to store photos, files or whatever on ( usually cost about £5 - £7)
3) Import to your phone and play through that
4) Plug it into the back of your TV and play through that while you are doing your housework
Just £28 inc P & P ( that’s less than 1.5p per tune) Money back guarantee if not 100% delighted - This is a no brainer!!!!
By far the best way to pay for any of the above items is by Just Giving. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/paul-edmondson6
It’s fast, easy and as long as you don’t mention buying anything (just put well done, such a great cause or similar) you can then gift aid it, which means Cancer Research can clam another 20%
Many of you will know Brenford & Barbara who have been coming to Tenerife you years, They had to postpone April’s holiday and now Novembers as well. Barbara’s story is below
If for any reason you cannot use Just Giving you can PayPal Eddy@soultime.org.uk or send a cheque payable to P Edmondson to 10 Hillswood Avenue, Kendal, Cumbria. LA9 5BT
On my radio show the other week I played a full CD that I found in my garage. I made it years ago for when I go in the garage on my exercise bike in Winter.
Anyway I offered it to the listeners and sold loads of them (for Cancer Research) It is full of 70’s tunes, some well-known and some not.
If you would like one they are £7 each and can be paid via Just Giving
OR YOU CAN HAVE BOTH FOR JUST £20 (I think that’s a bargain)
Don’t forget that if you want a request or dedication, just drop me a line
And finally ……………………….
I have been approached by a holiday company about them sorting out hotels and flights for Soul in the Sun customers!
I have refused their offer as it is just another company wanting to jump on the bandwagon.
They offered me 8 hotels, 6 of which are miles away from our venue , the other 2, I wouldn’t use myself. Apart from that they are far too dear!
