***** Well here it is, the review that everybody's been waiting for,


The Twisted Wheel Club on Sunday was FANTASTIC!


Don't take my word for it, just ask the 100's that came and loved every minute of it.


A Big thanks to you all for a Fantastic day, and like I said that:-


"It would be packed to the rafters" AND IT WAS!


A Big thanks to Richard Searling and Barry Tasker who did their "Annual Pendulum Club" DjJ sets in Room 2 - it was Brilliant and they loved doing it again for us.


Also from the DJs John, Jock and I, as always the atmosphere was fabulous from start to finish.


I could go on but I'm preaching to the converted who all know how good the Wheel is and travel 100's of miles to join us twice a month - we don't just get people who live around the corner!


And we do it all again in 10 days time, for:-


"The Twisted Wheel Club's Christmas Party"


on Friday Night December 23rd, 9pm till 2am with our guest DJ BBC Radio John Kane.


It's going to be another Belter!!!


Hope that you can join us for our last Soul Session of 2016, and thanks for the last 16 years!


Best Regards


Peter Alan Roberts.

I can't believe It's our last Sunday Afternoon Soul Session of 2016 .... Where has this year gone?

AND "What's It's gonna be":-

The legendary "Wigan Casino" DJ and BBC Radio Presenter Mr RICHARD SEARLING along with Mr BARRY TASKER who both DJ'd at Manchester's Pendulum Club in the 1970's and they will be doing their annual "PENDULUM CLUB" DJ sets for us in Room Two!

And in the Main Room - It will be 60's Wheel, "RnB", Stax , Atlantic, and Motown Classics" as always, with DJs Pete Roberts, John Green and Albert "Jock" Heron.

It's gonna be a CHRISTMAS CRACKER ...

And don't forget our "TWISTED WHEEL CLUB XMAS PARTY, FRIDAY 23rd DECEMBER" 9pm-2am. (As requested as we can't have Christmas day)

NB: Both events are £6 pp pay on the door.

What a way to end another Fantastic 16th Year at the Twisted Wheel Club!

Best Regards,

And thanks to TimB and Derek & Sue Smiley for your kind comments about the Club!


Lots of people tell me all the time, how they love the Wheel and how much that they enjoy it, but they don't come on here, and they also say there are a lot of other places on here where the djs backslap each other just to bump up there do's every 2 minutes ?
