This event is now over. Look up now to read the latest reviews of this soul event

We usually go to KGH and always enjoy Pete Eccles final spot- never lets us down. Cant see him on the Dj list. Is he not on. That would be disappointing !

i don't believe so geoff, probably have to consult richard about that but i'd be sure pete has been given an explanation...always plays a great selection of tunes... i think in essence, it's probably to accomodate steve whittle as it is a wigan anniversary special.

Best DJ gets his name put last?! Hmmmm....

 

I wouldn't consider going there now if Pete wasn't on. Spoke to loads who said the same last time it was on. Richard, listen to those who have supported KGH for years, and all your venues before then.... money isn't everything.

Great venue to be at with the 40th Anniversary of the Casino .. used for the new film because of its "casino" feel , it just has to be spot on !

Why do you have to go through ticketmaster for tickets? After they've charged you may as well turn up and pay on the door. Always somebody trying to make a couple of quid :(

A superb venue ready to help celebrate the 40th  Casino anniversary year  !  also the first public showing of the new film trailers , with some of the cast and crew attending to make this a night to remember .. some of the film props will be up for sale , so get yourself a little bit of film history  :)

Sorry about this but here we go. Was going to this until I saw the film was going to be there selling its wares. I don,t need telling what it was like back in the day and how we danced and in general educated in anyway about this amazing underground scene of ours, because I like most of you were there and carry on being there every day.As the saying goes.Northern Soul is a way of life and if I have to explain then you would,nt understand. I know most of you understand but hey ho I,ve got a big mouth. Rant over. It's. Hugh.

It should not spoil your night Hugh .. as far as I know it not "merchandice" but props from the film that are now up for sale to help boost the funds for some final production costs .. I dont know much more but would think they will be away from the dancehall , you don't have to go in and buy anything ... so should not have any effect on anyone's enjoyment .. I saw it posted and thought i would share  ... thats as much as I know :)

Hope you change your mind and come n' have a great night .. you know the venue and music will be all you need :)  as with every venue , take what you want and leave what you dont  ..

Tell you what Hugh- you two go and us two will go too. Went to Tower on Sat. - bit dubious about that one as well- turned into an awesome night. You just never know. See you Saturday.

Good crowd at KGH ! Hardly any handbaggers this time ! Good sets from all DJ's especially Casper .... as usual ... and the brilliant Pete Eccles ! But why oh why is he always on at the end of the night ??? when quite a few folk have gone home ! Got my souvenir from the Northern Soul film ... a new yellow top wonder who wore it before me ???? Great to see preview of the film ...pity I didn't win the film tickets though ! KTF Can't wait for the film release date

Really enjoyed it, and you're right about the crowd, it was mainly soulies, and was jam packed. Just thought the live act went on a bit too long which oushed all the spots back, so that Pete Eccles got less than an hour at the end although he pushed it over a bit with it'll never be over for me. Great spot from Pete as usual playing some real faves of mine, like Albert Washington I'm the Man, Dells Run for Cover, Yum Yums BIG thing. Brilliant night, and the film preview was good too.

Great night, shame Richard was away for it....

A really good night at KGH ,a brilliant venue ..  very busy main hall with as far as I could see in the main all "soul people"  .. 

The film demo was without a doubt superb ! the impact it had as people stood with open mouths and that tingling feeling was amazing !  WOW !  the applause and cheers said  everything :)

Finally had the chance to have a good conversation with Paul Sadot  .. total respect .. what a lovely guy with a great consistant passion ,

 

Great sets played by all the dj's who worked together to please all  ..
