One of the Doncaster pub scene’s best hidden treasures is the weekly Northern Soul session at Baileys, Cleveland Street.

Featuring DJ Dave John on the wheels of steel the music varies from straight four to floor Northern through to some spectacular funk and early disco as the dancing heats up.

Dave told the Free Press; “There’s no real set playlist – I just play what I feel and what the listeners ask me for.

“It could be anything from the sort of Motown based stuff you’d expect or something a bit funkier. “Thursdays at Bailey’s is always a great session, the crowd are always up for a dance – I really look forward to playing there!”

The music runs from 4 to 7pm on Thursday afternoons.
