CLUB 40

The Saturday session includes a champagne reception, and will feature music from across five decades

Aged 40 or over and finding it hard to find a suitable socialising spot?

Club 40 is a new event organised by Callan’s Bobby Jackman. Known for his social dancing gatherings which are hugely popular, Bobby’s increasingly coming across many for whom such occasions just don’t suit and others who feel too old for a number of local venues or get-togethers.

So, with daughter Lynda, he’s planned this new night out and it’s hoped that it’ll be the first of many. The inaugural Club 40 takes place at Kilkenny Ormonde on September 15 and neat dress is essential.

The Saturday session kicks off at 9.30pm and includes a champagne reception. It will feature music from across five decades of the sixties to the noughties led by WLRfm DJ John O’Shea.

Even more exciting for many is the return of the slow set! For those of a younger age this typically saw three slower songs played offering an opportunity to invite the guy or gal of your choice out to dance up close and personal.

Admission will cost €10, payable on the door on the night, with passes going into a draw for door prizes.

For those wishing to attend from Thomastown, a return bus has been organised – contact the crew via the Facebook page Club 40. We’ll be swinging by to check it out and will let you know about it in the coming weeks.
