Following recent advice from the UK Government in relation to COVID-19, this year's Northern Soul Weekender will not take place.

All 2020 tickets will be transfered to the 2021 event which will take place over the weekend of 2021: 2-4 July 2021.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this postponement.

Full statement from Gold Soul:

Regretfully the July event has been cancelled due to latest Government guidelines.

Although it has been suggested that bars/restaurants may be opening in July, local hotels have indicated they will stay closed.

As you can imagine this is a very trying time in the events sector and we are working hard to ensure safety guidelines are being met while anxious to please customers who are passionate about the long running event.

Whitby Pavilion is the home to Yorkshire’s original Soul Weekend since 2002 and we sincerely hope to see you soon once it’s safe to do so.

For now, stay well, stay safe, feel good.

Here’s a rundown of important information regarding both Soul Weekenders in Whitby 2020 and beyond.

If you are holding a July 2020 ticket or on line booking, you are automatically transferred to July 2nd-4th, 2021. There is no need to do anything. We will honor your booking for July 2021.

There will be limited availability for July 2021 which is on sale now.

September 11-13 Motown and Northern Soul Weekender is still on at this time. An extra day of Northern and Modern Soul(Sunday) only has been added.

Tickets are still on sale. Sources close to us have indicated that September is a more favorable start month in the town.
