We are all really looking forward to seeing Dean Chalkley‘s new short, Young Souls, about the Northern Soul scene. If the teaser is anything to go by, it’s going to be beautifully shot with some blinding music and style in bucket loads. The premiere is at Bethnal Green Working Mens Club in London on Thursday 14 July from 7pm. RSVP email@example.com if you fancy going.
There’s also a photographic exhibition (plus another chance to see the Young Souls short) at the Youth Club Gallery, 2.1 Kingly Court, Carnaby Street, London, W1B 5PW, from 22 July until 4 August with the private view on 21 July, 6pm ’til late. RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org if you like the sound of this. Fill your boots, it’s going to be super.

Exciting times…
