Stoke, Northern Soul Allnighter. I bang on about this venue more than any other, possibly because some have very different experiences than others and I appreciate there has been beer spilt and some etiquette faux pas but I also believe that it is en vogue to moan and those often moaning don’t even go?


I went on Saturday Night, I was there because I love the venue and the concept of a cathedral to Northern Soul, I love small Allnighters but this is still a mind blowing spectacle that once gone will be mourned, I shall not compare it to Wigan Casino because I was not a regular Casino goer, I am in my late twenties and shit.


What do I get from Stoke? Well it is the only place of late where I can dance to Modern Soul at an Allnighter and I can also hear up front Seventies and Sixties Funk along with the rarer dance tracks that I love to chuck my shapes to, I am also going to experience some thing new and possible something that is going to smash it big in future Allnighters, most Allnighters are unhealthily obsessed with retro sounds but Stoke is up there and takes me to school every time I go.


There is also the main room for those who wish to celebrate the past, I am in there after 0300hrs and I enjoy the feeling of dancing to the classics in such an opulent setting, the dance floor is possibly the best I have experienced and the people there are always friendly but I am not a conversationalist nor a socialite when I am out to dance but that is cool and people respect my space and leave me alone to funk it up.


On Saturday Night I danced to some of the best Rare Soul Music I have ever heard and I shall be back and I will celebrate my New Year on that Dance Floor along with the Hand Baggers, Bum Wigglers, Beer Monsters and Elbow Knockers, lets go mental chicken fookin oriental!

Too many tourists-standing on the dance floor/dancing while holding drinks.Needs sorting.

My first one for sometime-but nothings changed.

Too many people enjoy it for what it is.

But at least I didn`t hear Joe Jama!

For that matter I didn`t see Tim-did he do a spot.?

Just telling it as I see it.

Please no replies with the "biggest nighter" rhetoric.

some elbow knockers, but in a big venue, that's to be expected and yes there were tourists...but that never changes either...they were experiencing a "dance" from a different perspective...in other words, proper dancing, NOT manic pogoing and arm thrashing and off their heads on a combination of drugs and alcohol.....some actually do wake up and see the sense of it, the purpose of northern soul, perhaps as a sanitized form of dance music that goes against the grain of all the hum drum, low life commercial crap that poses as "music"...THAT'S WHY we live in this world and they frequent another...until they discover us...let them judge for theirselves and if they go and see the film, and like it...EVEN BETTER!

THE BIGGEST ALL-NIGHTER IT CERTAINLY IS....and i'm not saying that just because kev's a good mate....the fact is, it's an ESTABLISHED FACT!. ask any of the dj's about how it's changed and constantly evolves it's playlists...the youth coming through now want the oldies because they love them...after all they're virtually new to them...but these young soulies learn quick and they're also on the uptake with all the big newies and the concerted push behind the more hard driving funky stuff.

TED made a pertinent point about lots attending now specifically for the windsor suite, but it certainly isn't to the detriment of the main room?

NOTHING CHANGES??....i'm sorry you see it that way, that's blinkered...something that the attendees of the kings hall most certainly are NOT!.

A top night.

Great sets from the DJ's,top tunes,

nice to hear some of the underplayed

tracks on the main floor.

It is the biggest and always does it for me,

It is 2014,it can't ever be how it used to be,the

times are different,people are different,but it

is as near as you can get it and the majority

of attendees love it,roll on the next one.
