It’s time to shine up those dancing shoes and digging out the fly threads because we’ve got one hell of a classy night in store for you. That’s right, Mr Craig Charles is in the house, bringing his acclaimed Funk & Soul Club to Meca, Swindon on New Year's Eve.
The BBC radio host, actor and television personality is ready to transform MECA into a boisterous boogie land. He’ll be showing off his back catalogue of seriously tangy tunes ranging from modern mash ups and classic takes of the wildest Funk & Soul around, plus some surprises thrown in to keep you guessing.
Nothing will quash the carnival atmosphere that Charles successfully induces at every show! There’ll be some serious shuffling going down, so get ready for your body to throw some shapes that you didn’t think you had in you.
We have a mighty fine lineup for this very special New Year's Eve Party and a Soundsystem to help deliever the tunes from the mighty "Trunk Of Funk" and our very special guests!
