A new soul club at The Met in Whitbywill be launched this later this month organised by a music-lover and DJ from the town.

Whitby Soul Club will be launched on Saturday 18 May and is being organised by Marc James from Cleveland Terrace.

Revellers can expect to hear classic and rare northern soul, Motown, 6Ts and R&B at the venue in Argyle Road.

A further northern soul night is planned at the same venue on 28 September.

Marc (33) is a regular DJ on the scene spinning vinyl at a number of national vents including the Lambretta 65th anniversary event and is an avid collector of Northern Soul records.

He said: “I’ve been collecting records for about eight or nine years now, I like some of the rarer stuff.

“I’ve been thinking about organising a soul club night for a couple of years but I’ve been busy doing other stuff and I haven’t really had time until now.

“Quite a few people have been asking me to do it. I’m hoping it will be a success, people always like coming to Whitby.”

The night will take place in the Met’s ballroom so there will be plenty of room for dancing.

Marc, who works as an electrician at Boulby Mine,added Northern Soul music is increasing in popularity with younger ‘mods’.

Four DJs will play on the night from 8pm until 1am, tickets priced £5 on the door.
