Just got to say a big thumbs up from me for  the first ever nighter at this massive venue. There was bound to be a few teething problems with a undertaking of this size and with appox 800 people in. The queue to get a drink from the bar was scary early on and  i gave up after approx. 15 mins and bought a coke from the snack bar instead.. This next comment is i,m not sure a valid point considering it is a Roller Rink/ Dance venue. But there seemed to be a lack of seating around and about to have a chill and chat, that even goes for the smoking area, plenty of cover but little else. I don't mean to be overly critical of what for me was a fantastic night, spent in great company listening to some fabulous records played by every single DJ on the night. Was great to see so many young soulies really up for having a great night. And a few older one as well. Looking forward to next years nighter already.. Promoters please don't take offence at my criticism, its just my personal opinion.

Steve.

What an amazing event .It was so great to see so many young faces at a northern event .The music by all the DJ s was fantastic .Some people complained about the queue to get in which most events can only dream of .

Had a great time in the record bar exchanging stories with friends old and new then danced and chatted the night away .I am so looking forward to this becoming part of the Northern soul Calender event of the year .Well done Jordan ,Charlotte and crew

Talk about evocative. A massive venue,packed out,brilliant sounds from start to finish. A queue to get in. And it was in Wigan too. Most enjoyable nighter i think i've attended in years. Uplifting to see so many younger people, as always.

Well done bollocks (and Charlotte ).

Looking forward to this especialy as it appears to be selling well as you need a big turnout in a large venue.I always preferred Samanthas,cleethorpes and st Ives to Wigan  so maybe dont hold the casino on such a pedestal as others9 it was though a f....ng goodnighter),the dj lineup is looking very good ,Ive been impressed over the last couple of years by some of the sets Ive heard from the younger choon spinners looking forward to hear more of the same  on Saturday,as well as Mark Freeman John Vincent and others of course.

Talked my mate Lenny lenience from Corby,one of the members of Wilkys tristalkerkeymarangblocking club(Be nice to see the founder and chairman of that club herr vundabarr Wilky son himself havent see him for decades now one of the best people i knew from the scene) back when the original Wigan nighter was running into coming up north with us for his first time since then,he didnt take much perrsuasion.Im starting to enjoy it already and its only Thursday night.I might get our lot to go and have a look at the site of the casino next morning ,in a shopping centre aint it?Havent been in wigan since about six months before casino shut. Got the tickets all sorted,Wish well to the promoters let it be a four changes of shirt night blasted by sounds,heat,atmosphere and not forgetting the etc.Everyone I know is remarking on the strange feeling one gets when saying see you at wigan nighter saturday,now thats deja vu if anything is.Sound ststem sounds as if its top notch must say to me its needed  as  naming no names Ive been to a couple of place recent weeks and the sound system was just sh.t really messed with the enjoyment of listening to the choons.

Hey Manus

I see that you're still saving your new spectacles 'for best.....'

I know. As they'd say in Corby & other parts of Scotland:

"He's a cheeky wee shite, so he is"

See you on Saturday/Sunday for a good ear chewing....

Mark

Another weekend where we all travel like trappist monks in silence all the way there and again in the morning driving home with not even one word being said by the inhabitants of the car to each other and this week Lenny as well,,all of us  known for never verballing and being impossible to get a word out of including our other travel companion.Ah silent contemplation I dont think lol .A good ,well great night out ahead and we should be there early doors and up for it..
