This event is now over
Last minute changes to Haigh Hall Northern Soul EventOrganisers have had to make some last minute changes to this weekend's Mayor's Charity Northern Soul event.The event, scheduled for Saturday February 26 at Haigh Hall, was originally billed as a Northern Soul All-nighter. The event was planned to run from 10pm until 6am but will now run from 8pm until 2am instead. The Mayor's Northern Soul event is the first of what is hoped will become an annual highlight in the borough's social calendar to raise money for the first citizen's chosen charity appeal. Mayor of Wigan, Cllr Michael Winstanley says: "We're really looking forward to a great night on Saturday. It was originally billed as an all-night event but unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to move the times so the event will now start at 8pm and finish at 2am."We know that some people may be disappointed by this, so we are proposing to waive the entrance fee for the event and instead ask people attending to make a donation to the charity appeal."This year, Cllr Winstanley has chosen to use his appeal to raise much-needed funds to support local people recovering from strokes. He says: "The support for the charity appeal has been magnificent and we're hoping for a great time on Saturday night. It may not be an all-nighter but it's going to be great music, a great atmosphere. We're sure we're going to get a lot of support from the Northern Soul crowd."Anyone who has inquiries about the event can call: Bob Brierley on 01942 522922 or 07792559191 or Andy McCabe on 07792164683.
