Dear All,
This is an extremely sad day for us ?
The Walls Club is known to us as the home of Boogie Shoes, so to hear the sad news below is heartbreaking on so many levels.
I have been teaching at The Walls Club for the past 27 years. This includes the Heroes & Villains days, and for the past 12 years it has been the home of Boogie Shoes, housing Monday Morning & Wednesday Evening classes, Plus Socials and events.
I know a lot of you have been with me for this whole duration and some of you for a shorter period of time. Either way the feeling is going to be the same…… sad ?
Let’s keep positive……
I want to let you all know that I am currently working on sorting all this out and trying to find suitable venues to re-house us. I am NOT giving up on this and just looking at it as a bump in the road I need to flatten.
WE WILL get past it. I ask that you please give me time to do this and I will be back with further information soon.
For now, we keep going until the end of March ??
Our thoughts go out to all the staff at The Walls Club ??
Best wishes
It is with deep sadness that we announce today that the Walls Club will close its doors for the final time on Sunday 31st March 2024 after providing a huge range of social events and sporting facilities for the employees of Walls Factory and the people of Gloucester for over 60 years.
During this time, the Walls Club has become a Gloucester institution, known, and used by so many who enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere, fantastic customer service and value for money facilities it has provided. Our aim as a business has always been to provide an affordable and accessible community facility aiming to provide great products and services that delivers value for money while assisting local people, businesses and charities.
Since the COVID pandemic, we have been working extremely hard as a team for the past two and a half years to try and turn things around. Over the past 12 months, we felt like we had turned a significant corner, however, unfortunately it was not quickly enough and due to a combination of the COVID pandemic, a cost of living crisis, high inflation, high interest rates, a building requiring urgent renovation and an extremely difficult hospitality market, we have had no choice but to come to the very difficult decision to enter the company into liquidation.
We would like to sincerely apologise to any customers who had events planned at the Walls Club in the future. All these bookings were taken in good faith believing that we would be able to fulfil them. We have reached out to every customer individually and we are working with the proposed liquidator to understand the next steps as quickly as possible as well as offering to try to help them find an alternative venue.
A message from the Chairman – ‘’Having been involved with the Walls Club for 20 years and the Chairman for over 10 years, this is an extremely sad day for me, I am absolutely devastated. However, my primary concern is for my dedicated employees and our loyal customers. The employees have gone above and beyond to ensure that the business has even managed to survive for the past 2 and a half years. I would like to sincerely thank them for their loyalty and hard work’’.
Finally, we would like to thank all the past Directors, Committee Members, groups, organisations, charities, businesses and individuals who have supported the Walls Club and helped us to shape the business over the past 60 years to ensure that thousands of people have been able to make memories that will last a lifetime.

? And just like that it was over! BUT what forever memories I will take from this event ❤️
(we need to get this trending! ?)
I’ve been described plenty of things in my life but hot, fit and fabulous has not been any of them before now. ?
Which is why when Helen O'Malley & Betty Drummond was hash tagging this whilst announcing the winner of MALE PERSONALITY, it took what felt like a life time for me to realise they have just called my name ?
From 10:15pm on Saturday evening my phone was on fire from Messages , text and emails coming in, and my Social media accounts going wild with people wanting to congratulate me. Believe me when I say peeps, I have now read them ALL and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am seriously feeling the love ❤️ I can only apologise that I literally cannot respond to them all.
The Crystal Boot Awards is on it’s 28th year and a sudden realisation from me that I too am on my 28th year of dancing/teaching. ?
From watching and attending this event over the past 28 years, looking up to the Personalities before my eyes and aspiring to be like them and in awe of them, to getting this Award truly is special. ?
Thank you to each and everyone of you who nominated me and also gave me your vote. To just even be in the line up of TRUE Hot, Fit and Fabulous men in our industry is HUGE to me, let alone winning it!!
I say here’s to the next 28 years!! ??
Although not sure hot, fit and fabulous will still apply when I’m 77 ??
⭐️ Another MASSIVE moment for me this weekend was teaching. This is what I absolutely love doing the most in my career. I get so much joy from seeing dancers starting off with the not knowing to seeing them strut their stuff to what you have just taught them fills my heart. ??❤️
Thank you to everyone who joined in my workshop and for all the lovely comments on the music, the dance and my teaching. I really do love “LIFE WITH YOU” (Do like what I did there?!)

Thank you so much to Karl for joining me on this creation. You are a true life long friend, my Danger Twin. A true professional in everything you do and I absolutely love working/partying with you ⚠️⚠️?
Every year I always list 3 Highlights in my post from the weekend.
It's always So hard to just select 3 but as I have already named 2 above, technically I am cheating and giving you another 3 ⬇️
? Sharing the floor with everyone dancing my dances - To me if it’s 6, 60 or 600 on the floor the feeling is the same. Thank you ❤️
? The morning after......
I actually made Breakfast on Sunday morning (I think this may have been a first!) This isn’t the highlight ? but the round of applause I got from walking through the restaurant to get to a table sure was ❤️ a special moment for sure!
? The Nominee’s Parade - First and foremost, congratulations to Karl and Roy for putting this together. It has to be my favourite to date!!
As a young child I always wanted to star in my all time favourite Musical/Film “Grease” and this was as close it’s going to get …… I LOVED IT ????
To Betty, Helen and ALL the “HOT PINK” Team, ALL the crew involved from behind the scenes, I thank you for putting this all together and for pulling off what was an AMZING weekend.
⭐ To those that are at the start of their dreams or well and truly on their way to for filling them…..
Keep believing, keep striving and more importantly KEEP BEING YOU! It will happen ??
Until the next time peeps, much love ?
P.s get trending #hotfitandfabulous

Look no further!!

We can supply a Gift Voucher for whatever you would like to buy them.



* A Years Membership

* A Boogie Shoes Weekend Away

* Boogie Shoes Merchandise


Just let us know who it is for and how much you would like to spend and we can put together something for you.



Exapmle of a Gift Certificate ........


Boogie Shoes have a few events throughout the year that require pre-sold tickets.


There are a couple of  reasons why we sell tickets before an event:


1) We need to cater for dancers coming to the event, so therefore need to know how many are coming in advance.


2) The event promises to be sold out, so buying a ticket before the event means you are definitely coming & you will not miss out!


3) Or ALL of the above!



(Exceptional circumstances will be taken on board)

Boogie Shoes takes no responsibility for re-selling your ticket for you.  

If you bought it, it is your responsibilty to sell it on if you can no longer attend the event.


ALL pre-sold tickets are non-transferable to a another event.


If Boogie Shoes were to refund tickets for such events, based on "I can no longer come" or "I have changed my mind" it defeates the object of

pre-selling tickets.


So PLEASE before you buy your tickets make sure 100% that you can attend.


Many thanks

Jamie. xx
