In November, we’ll be introducing our first ever Soul Weekender break. We’ll be showcasing some of the genre’s best and most popular artists right here on our Skegness resort. Every Soul Brother and Soul Sister will have an all-singing, all-dancing weekend listening to some of the smoothest sounds of soul. There will be performances from the original artists of real pedigree and history, along with some amazing tribute acts. Headlining the weekend will be artists including:

Soul II Soul

Soul II Soul brought their soulful funk to the UK charts during the late 80s and early 90s. Commonly known for their Number 1 smash hit ‘Back to Life’ in 1989, they’re now recognised as one of the world’s most influential and successful black UK music groups.

Alexander O’Neal

Award winning R&B singer Alexander O’Neal is the only black singer to sell-out six consecutive nights at London’s Wembley arena. Recognised for his hits ‘Criticize’ and ‘If You Were Here Tonight’, Alexander continues to bring his soulful sound to audiences everywhere.

Trevor Nelson

British DJ and BBC Presenter Trevor Nelson MBE has released 7 successful compilation albums over the years. Performing at the Soul Weekender break, Trevor Nelson will be sharing some of his favourite R&B, Soul and Rap classics from over the decades.


Recognised star Lemar has sold over 2 million albums, had 7 top ten UK singles and finished 3rd place on the first series of the popular British talent show, Fame Academy. Since supporting Usher at the age of 17, Lemar’s career has seen success filling the UK Charts with songs such as ‘Dance (With U)’ & 50/50.

Craig Charles

Grounded as a Funk & Soul icon, the legendary actor, host and broadcaster Craig Charles has become one of the UK’s most popular Funk & Soul DJs. Showcasing some of his favourite sounds, Mr Charles will hold a captivating performance at the Soul Weekender.
