Summer BBQ Party with the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club

Craig Charles (from Coronation Street/ Red Dwarf off the TV) hosts a Soul and Funk show on BBC Radio 6 Music and apparently spins a mean Soul/ Funk night too (read more below). So I researched and theres a Craig Charles night coming up at the beginning of August at Jamm in Brixton.

Look forward to it!!

Tickets are £10 advance, £8 early bird and £12 on the door- not including booking fee.

The night starts at 10pm and goes on until 5am so I suggest we meet at a nearby pub in Brixton- any suggestions welcome! :)

    Can u tell me how much the event is please

    Hi everyone,

    Right....So I was holding off as I have a friend DJ'ing at the Market Place by the Ritzy in Brixton around 9, and was trying to hatch a plan about meeting there before heading to Jamm. But...I'm going to play it safe, and final answer is that the official meeting place will be in the Crown and Anchor, opposite Jamm. I will try and be there for 9 but will def be there for 9.30. Everyone is more than welcome to turn up when you see fit, and I imagine we will head over to Jamm between 11 and 12. The Crown and Anchor does do food as well, I would imagine until about 10 but I don't know that for sure.

    Judit- I'm not sure whether tickets will be available on the door- when we went to Jamm to see the reggae night there were tickets on the door, but I'm anticipating Craig Charles will be more popular.

    I hope that covers all bases-Look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow :) Ali

    Ps. will send an e-mail now with my number

    Got my ticket but a bit confused about where you guys are meeting up. Is it the bar with verandah on the parade, next to the Stay. Can we get food there? And what time please?

    Hi ali,
    I've been following the conversation about meeting before the club. But where and what time?

    August 2, 2013

  • Judit F.

    Maybe someone would leave a contact number? I'm hopeless at picking out faces in a crowd!

    Just to add my pence worth. Satay bar will be full on a Saturday. There is a bar with a veranda along the perade right next door the Satay. Or if your really feeling like watching the world go by, Ali can get there really early and snag a table outside the Ritzy. Mazzie you can eat and watch all manner of foot traffic stroll by ; )

    Hi guys,

    I think we should meet at 9.00 somewhere near Jamm, and heda to the club between 11 and 12. As for where...

    Well the last time we went to Jamm one of the members suggested meeting at a pub opposite called the Crown and Anchor. It was a nice place with friendly welcoming staff, and not busy at all which meant we had plenty of space to sit down and natter before heading to Jamm.
    However I'm more than happy to meet at Satay Bar if everyone would prefer. Am happy to grab some grub before, but what sort of place is Satay Mazzie? Will it be busy on a Saturday night and would we have to book- is it a sit down 'order off a menu type place'. If not everyone is ordering food and people are coming in dribs and drabs will that be a problem?

    What does everyone reckon?

    :) Ali

      Hi depends really! Great vibes there with outside seating, insideseating does get full but outside at front normally empty. Maybe opp jamm wd be better

      July 30, 2013

    • Mazzie

      Plus if we r meeting at 9 i will be peckish. Think pub opp good collection point - if i get hingry i and mates can eat at satay or veranda bar first then join everyone at pub

      July 30, 2013

  • Mazzie

    Satay Bar has an outside area to sit eat n chat

    July 30, 2013

  • Mazzie

    July 30, 2013

    We have our tickets too!!

    July 14, 2013

  • Ali P.

    Just booked my ticket :) looking forward to it- just a word of warning- a couple of the websites that are listed as selling tickets on the Jamm website are stating they are out of tickets at the early bird price. Its only £2 more for general admission but still... and also avoid Ticketweb as they charge you a completely pointless £2 extra for P&P even though most others just issue an E-ticket
    See y'all there :)
