The Empire All-Nighter at Wigan Roller Rink, an amazing venue steeped in Wigan's musical history. Check out this incredible photo we came across, taken in the 1950's showing a lunch Hour Concert in the Canteen / Dance Hall. A regular occurrence to boost moral in the work place for the 2,000 or so workers, The Eckersley Mill would regularly invite artists and bands to preform for the workers during there lunch times to dance on the specially imported Canadian maple floor. Join us for a new part of this musical journey on 15th September 2018 when the venue hosts a special celebration for Wigan Casino's 45th Anniversary.

You can get your early-bird £12 tickets by clicking the link below!

Click the link below and take the Google 360° tour of The Empire All-Nighter in Wigan. Be transported by a click of a button onto the Canadian maple sprung floor that will be bouncing on the 16th September 2018 as this is the venue that will be hosting the celebration of Wigan Casino's 45th Anniversary - Although there will be a few changes with lighting.... No lighting! Only the traditional UV's 1f609.png;-)

Enjoy!

Hello everybody! Please can I ask any record dealers or merchandise stall holders to start to get in contact with me. We are expecting this night to be our biggest event yet and would like to reserve your places early.

There is no charge to reserve a table to sell at Empire, we like to encourage record dealers and anybody that would like to sell to come along and be part of the buzz in the well lit record bar that's perfectly placed behind the DJ booth to allow you all to ha...ve a chin wag and hear yourself think without missing any great records throughout the event. All we ask is that you purchase a ticket for the event and if possible bring your own tables if that is possible as we have a shortage of the long decorating style tables.

Thank you all in advance!

Also.... Keep your eyes peeled for the Empire promotional video that is going to be hitting my Facebook timeline and the Empire event page very shortly!

hi,

to whoever is staging or watching this event. I'm sure theres a direct contact point somewhere but i cant find it. Im launching a new Northern Soul band in a few months time, The Stef Charles Project (TSCP). We really want to connect with anyone who would be willing to donate NS dance footage for use in our promo show reel and any NS related still images (records, posters, dance stills etc).

Yes there is stuff online but i need access to original file formats (mpeg, jpeg etc) at a decent resolution to make the show reel. So i need people who are willing to share their original work. We will obviously give full credit to whoever wants it in the reel credits.

We just a bunch of experience amateurs so there's no money in i'm afraid but you'll be helping struggling artists trying to keep the faith and help promote live music. I can be reached at stefencharles@live.com

Peace & Thanks

ps, yes we are mostly soft southern boys but we still love the NS sound ;0)

It’s been hard keeping this a secret but we can finally reveal that we are opening a second room at Empire. This years second room is branded ‘The Records That Wigan Forgot’ and will be playing 5 hours of forgotten, lesser known Wigan sounds. All part of our Wigan Casino 45th anniversary celebrating. We don’t want this event to be like so many Casino celebrations that have happened previously and we want to do this different. DJs Dave Molloy, Paul Collinson, Tsop Manchester (Barry Maleedy), Tony Clarke and The Casino’s own Dave Evison. 

Tickets are selling fast and it’s looking like this year is going to be a complete sell-out. So please order your tickets in advance, at a reduced rate by clicking the link below. (Or purchase on the door £15 if available)

Quite looking forward to this, more so in the hope that we'll get to hear some of the lesser known tracks from Station Rd.

 

 

Looking like I'm going to be spending time with you and the lovely Debs mate

So looking forward to playing out tonight in the company of likeminded creatures of the night. . Can wait to hear what's going to be played in the under played/ lesser known room.
