The date and venue for a fundraising night in memory of a popular Morecambe soul music DJ has changed.

The upcoming Tony Crookes Celebration Soul Train night in aid of CancerCare is now on Saturday June 15 at Morecambe Football Club's Mazuma Stadium.

There will be10 Northern Soul DJs in two rooms playing great soul music in celebration of the life of Tony Crookes, who died in March aged 69.

The event will also now be an all-dayer from 3pm until midnight.

Admisssion is just £5 and there will be a raffle with all money also going to Tony's family’s chosen charity CancerCare.

More details including DJ line-up will be announced over the next few days and on Beyond Radio. 

The event was originally due to be held at the Alhambra in Morecambe on Friday, May 31.

Tony, who lived in Bare, was a soul music DJ for many years at numerous venues across the Morecambe and Lancaster area.

He was also a Morecambe Football Club supporter and was there for all three of their Wembley victories in 1974, 2007 and 2021, as well as a huge scooter fan who could often be seen riding around the town on his Lambretta.

Tony was also a presenter of a soul music show on Diversity FM in Lancaster, the forerunner of Beyond Radio.
