THE BLACKPOOL TOWER WIGAN CASINO REUNION ALL NIGHTER — SAT. 13th SEPTEMBER 2014
 
The world-famous Tower Ballroom in Blackpool plays host to another Northern Soul All Night session next month when several of the legendary Wigan Casino DJs get together with a line-up of today’s top names for a 9 hour celebration of Wigan’s biggest dancefloor packers and all of the UK’s biggest current indemanders.
Kev Roberts , Richard Searling and Dave “Mr. Oldies” Evison are back together again for an All Nighter that celebrates the 41st anniversary of the Wigan Casino’s opening back on September 23rd 1973.
Doors open at 10pm and the dancing continues through until 7am.
Joining the “Casino three” will be many of today’s top spinners and up and coming younger names that are featured in the forthcoming film, “Northern Soul”, due out later this year.
Ginger Taylor, Chris King, Nige Brown, Sean Chapman, Mark Freeman, Casper and the Wigan Young Souls team will all be joining Kev, Richard and Dave behind the turntables at what promises to be another Tower Northern soul All Nighter to savour!
Co-promoter Richard Searling said of the event :
“ Between Kev , myself and Dave we worked at the Wigan Casino for almost 400 All Nighters between 1973 and it’s sad closure in late 1981, and we appreciate that so many lovers of Northern Soul consider the venue and those times to be the halcyon years of the music. This reunion is can opportunity to re-live those glorious years at the UK’s number one venue. Last year we had over 1,000 Northern Soul lovers attend one of the year’s highlight events. This year we will have the very best of the Casino classics as well as the top new discoveries as well as all the winners that have been discovered since the Casino closed it’s doors back in 1981. At last September’s event it was great to hook up again with many old friends from that great era for our music”

  A Lovely post that just about sums up a very sad night. I thought the first aiders were inspirational and it was a very humbling  experience seeing them go about their work. Respect to all concerned.

It has taken a few days to take in and settle with the sad loss of  "one of our own" happening in front of you ,  the first aiders on the scene  were superb and tireless in attempts to save this mans life ,  A good word too for Chris King who was dj at the moment it all happened , very clear and helpful on the mic to get people moving away and out of the hall ,  after some time  considering the future of that night the correct descision was in my view, taken to carry on  ..  in the true spirit of most of us , should it have been ourselves, would have wanted to happen.

The people attending , the Dj's and promoters  showed a spirit and togetherness that was as simon has said , showing the better side of this scene of ours ..

RIP Steve Thompson , God bless you ..
