Yesterday once more is a family owned business where three generations of the Ford family have worked. Roger Ford had worked in nightclubs throughout the 60s and 70s and watched his son Kelvin with keen interest as he began work as a club DJ in the late 70s.
As Kelvin began to appear on Elvis Presley conventions and European holidays, Roger had the idea of organising such a holiday with a Rock n Roll theme in Spain.
In May 1990 Rock Continental Club took 600 people to Lloret de Mar. Two more holidays followed the last in Yugoslavia in 1992 just before war broke out.
In 1993 the business flourished with a change of name to Yesterday Once More and Kelvin became the main organisior.
European Rock n Roll holidays have continued for 30 years as well as cruises and fifteen holidays to the States. In 1995 we began all dayers and in 1996 holiday centre weekends started.
Kelvin’s son Josh joined full time in 2016 and with the addition of 80s and 90s events the future looks bright.
We focus on 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Rock & Roll, Elvis and Line Dancing weekends and holidays. Whether a weekend event, a full week or a once in a lifetime trip across the USA, we’ve got it covered.
Our soul Motown disco weekends and festivals have become very popular, combining the very best bands and disco soul DJs from the era, recreating the disco grooves of the 60s and 70s perfectly – BRING YOUR PARTY TO OURS.
Not only perfect for music fans, our weekends are perfect for team building events. We pride ourselves in the organisation and professionalism of all our events, with all elements meticulously planned from start to finish.
Our sound and lighting systems are second to none. Our DJs are the best in the business, playing all your favourites from the era. We ensure that numbers are limited for all events, to ensure your comfort and enjoyment is priority, and that most importantly, everyone attending is there to enjoy the event. You can relax in the friendly atmosphere, surrounded by like-minded people.
BIG name acts ensure our events continue to be the benchmark to which all other events are compared, and our attention to detail produce some of the finest quality events available anywhere.
We are hopeful that the March events will go ahead at Unity resort. However we do expect the next few weeks to be very difficult until the vaccine rollout gets going, with the country in lockdown. Therefore anyone not comfortable paying balance due in early January can defer until 23rd February, without incurring any late payment fees.
We are also hopeful that this event will take place and are in contact with the Guesthouse.
It also depends on the speed of the vaccine rollout. A final decision will be made by early March.
Events at Durrant Hotel and Unity resort for 2021 will go ahead as planned with a different schedule of entertainment (number of acts will not change).
Unity will feature a festival all-dayer style with bands at 2.30pm, 4.00 pm, 5.30pm, 7.00pm and 8.30pm.
Durrant Hotel will begin with evening meal at 6pm.
We have proved with our Elvis week at Hemsby that events CAN operate in the current climate very successfully.
If you do not wish to attend for ANY reason we have no legal obligation to transfer or refund deposits as the events WILL be going ahead.
We have spent six months transferring deposits and cancelling events and are not in a position to be as flexible as we would normally be, therefore transfers and refunds are NOT possible. Unless you can prove you were part of the original group advised to shield by the government in March, are infected with coronavirus at the time of the event, or are in a local lockdown area at the time of the event that doesn’t allow travel on holidays (most do). In these exceptional circumstances we will look at bookings on an individual basis.
As the 10pm curfew looks a mid-to-long term policy we will all have to learn to adapt and we are certain that our events will be a great success
Hopefully most sensible people will recognise this situation is not of our making and understand our decisions designed to protect the long term viability of our business and livelihoods of the professional musicians we employ.
The above is subject to change based on any government change in its policy.
