Ukrainian Club - Ashton Under Lyne - 1st Anniversary on

This event is now over

Hi Folks

Friday 12th January 2018 is the 1st Anniversary of the rare and underplayed soul nights being run by, and championed by, Brian Lester and Chris Churm.

Despite a change of venue it’s fair to class this event as our 1st Anniversary and, as you may know, the nights started at the Dukinfield Masonic Hall in January 2017.  However, issues with the stewards, somewhat pricey drinks and unhelpful neighbours in a primarily residential area saw a change of venue mid-year to our current home at the Ukrainian Club in Ashton-Under-Lyne.  A supportive steward, realistic bar prices and a more intimate room with a great layout, a great stage area and a superb dancefloor has helped make the move to Ashton an overwhelming success.  Interest has been high, feedback has been really positive and attendances have been really encouraging and are climbing.

As we celebrate the 1st Anniversary we’re sticking with Brian and Chris’ stated music policy of 'rare and underplayed' as this approach has definitely struck a chord with those looking for something just that little bit different from the run-of-the mill-oldies nights.  You will almost certainly hear a few oldies, but these will be of the harder-to-obtain, ‘quality’ variety and all will be guaranteed OVO.  Blend these with what we believe are equally great, but less well known, 45s and the outcome is (hopefully) that you have a great night and go home having heard a new few tunes and a few that you might not have heard played-out for a while.

Special guest DJs for the 1st Anniversary are in the process of being confirmed and as soon as I have the final details either Brian or I will post these.

The address is 

The Ukrainian Club (Association of Ukrainians)

215 Stockport Road



The venue is just across the road from the Shell petrol station, it’s just the right size with a capacity of around 80 and has a really nice separate chill-out/lounge area.  The car park is only small, but there's plenty of parking on the residential streets behind the venue.

Doors open at 7:30pm and entrance is a quite reasonable (we think) £3.00.

The event finishes at midnight.

Be there, be rare...or be square!

Fast becoming the North West's premier soul night. Proper soul people and great cutting edge music....in the spirit of Hyde Botanical and Hyde United. Well Done Brian and Chris! Now lets get it extended to 2am. That would make it perfect!! (actually 3 or 4am would be even more perfect!!!
