In 2006 a dear friend & one of Barnet’s favourite sons, passed away from cancer in the USA where he had lived for many years. As a tribute to Andy Weekes & his passion of soul music, his family & close friends organised a special event for the local community & the extended soul family in his home town which since it’s first event in 2007, has grown in size & popularity year on year…

 

 

About-Us-ImageAfter the first Summer Soulstice held at Barnet Elizabethans RFC (pictured), the party moved a couple of miles down the road to Gypsy Corner & the Old Elizabethans Memorial Playing Fields, a place that Andy enjoyed going to & gave hours of pleasure playing cricket, football & rugby during the 1980’s. All of these things he did to the souOriginal Sol Logo TILTndtrack of his life – classic & modern soul.

 

 

Shift forward to now…

After a 11 years, this special Soul Family All-Dayer has not just become a firm favourite on the soul music event calendar, but draws people from near & far. Our own extended Soulstice family now travels from all over the UK each year to enjoy “soul on a Summer’s day” & we have regular visitors from France, Germany & Sweden. Even Andy’s own family have visited from California on several occasions, including his son Braedon.

With this continued support & all the valued help from our crew members, volunteers, DJ’s, artists, as well as our hosts Old Elizabethans, we continue to swell the coffers of our chosen charity Cherry Lodge Cancer Care & to other local worthy causes, which passed the £250,000 mark in 2017.
