A great venue with a large room, 'overflow' dance floor and separate bar area. A relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, cheap bar, and good car parking (massive car park to the rear of the building)
Top DJs from around the UK will join us each month to play quality Northern, semi known, rarer and underplayed / forgotten vinyl from the 60s and 70s: If you like to listen to Northern Soul the way we used to and not overwhelmed with the same old tunes than why not pay us a visit? We would love to welcome you !

"The Soul Shack isn't your ' run of the mill commercial gig that plays to the crowd ' We do play requests, obviously, but we dont get that many. Its simple at the Shack and anybody thinking of coming should consider our music policy before doing so. It will save disappointment regarding your evening out.
We play underplayed oldies, classic oldies, and a sprinkling of rare, all (hopefully) on original vinyl. Covering the Northern Soul spectrum of the sixties and seventies with music from the Wheel through to Cleethorpes and anything up to the early eighties, as long as it was a sound from the halcyon days of the Northern scene.
We know that's not everybodies cup of tea, but it is ours and that's reflected in the music we play and the DJs we choose. Most will have been around the scene for a long while and know what they are doing.
We know our policy is not a ' crowd-puller ' and most will choose to go to the more popular nights but that's ok its not something we really worry about.
As long as we stick to what we do and continue to get support we will do it; why?because we love what we do, the great scene we are involved in and the music that helped shape our lives.
Thank you for your support at the Shack we really do appreciate it."Note: this is now a stripped down post-event display
