Kevin Rowland, aka one of the Greatest Living Englishman, is playing the next Great Northern Soul Food event, which is as good a reason I’ve heard in a long while to get the (metaphorical) party-poppers out.

Kevin Rowland literally blew the roof off the Boiler Shop when he played this event last year (note: not literally). He kicked up a huge storm with a set taking in the best in soul, disco and more. And – get this! – he also chipped in with some live vocals too (live vocals!). And now he’s back by popular demand and ready to do it all again along with the cream of local soul and funk DJs. These Great Northern Soul Food events are always great fun and the food part of the equation will see some of the region’s finest food vendors on site offering food that is just as funky as whatever the DJs are serving up. It’s all taking place on Sunday 25 August but don’t fret, you won’t have to go to work on the following Monday. It’s a Bank Holiday, yer daft.

Great Northern Soul Food: Kevin Rowland, Sunday 25 August, Boiler Shop, South Street, Newcastle, 5pm-12pm, £10. boilershop.net
