New Rockin' 8s and Paul Bristow E-Mail Address 

Rockin' 8s & Paul Bristow's e-mail address at is no longer functioning - in fact none of the e-mail addresses at will work anymore; this situation occurred when the WebMaster decided to summarily "shut-down" our Web-Site on 1st December!

Already, I have heard from several people who are rather "miffed" that I had not responded to their enquiries - and I must apologise for the confusion.

I now have a new Web-Site at - and you can contact me from there, but there is no way to redirect the old e-mail addresses without the help of the old WebMaster, who seems to be determined to do as much damage as he can...

If you have already requested tickets for the Valentine Dance 2016 - using the address.

Please re-send the request to
   - thanks Paul

Overseas and UK Dances and Holidays Re-Organised 
We have re-organised our holiday and mini break coming events page, because we are getting more and more requests from countries all over the world to advertise their dances and specials. So we have split our Holidays and Mini Breaks into two to form two new pages; Overseas Dances and Holidays and UK Holidays and Mini Breaks. They basically do as what they say on the tin. All events will of course still appear in the main Jan - Dec coming Events. It is our hope that it will help you look for events in a more efficient manor. Check out our new pages - Overseas Dances and Holidays & UK Holidays and Mini-Breaks.
