Our Empire All-Nighter poster and advertisements will be out soon, we have had a few small delays due to our signwriter having an injury to his arm. If you remember from previous posts, we use the same signwriter that Wigan Casino used for their all-nighter posters. They always look the dogs danglies, so we are prepared to wait a little longer! Tickets currently at the printers, as soon as they are ready I will announce that they are available to buy at upcoming all-nighters!

We can now announce that tickets for this year’s FINAL Empire Soul All-Nighter are now available for purchase.

As usual these are our reduced priced £12.70p (including postage) tickets.

These normally sell quick and with this being our last event we expect them to sell faster than usual with the big interest.

Please PM me to secure your ticket/s via Facebook messenger or Soul Source personal message.

Hello everybody, with much sadness I must now inform you all that this Septembers Empire Soul All-Nighter will be re-scheduled for September 2021. 

Under the current Guildlines of Social distancing and Advice from the council for people’s safety. Myself, Charlotte and the Staff at Wigan Roller Rink have no option other than to postpone our event until September 2021. 

Even if the venue was able to open, we would only be able to run with strict rules and a reduced number of attendees, making the event not possible to go ahead. With this being advertised as our last and final Empire All-Nighter we really do want to make this a memorable, special night.

We would like to thank all those who have purchase tickets and these will be honoured for next September which will be bigger & better. We hope everyone can still join us, including all DJs & stall holders 

Stay safe everyone see you in 2021. ❤️

Jordan Wilson, Charlotte Hindley, Tom Peters, Dawn Holding

Please share on your personal Facebook pages and ensure that everybody is aware of this change.

Just checking in to say that Me, Charlotte and all of the Wigan Roller Rink Staff are so looking forward to welcoming you back to The Empire All-Nighter this September.

As you can imagine, It has been a very stressful time for the staff at the venue but all plans are now in place for the easing of COVID-19 restrictions and the re-opening of the venue in time for our Last Empire All-Nighter on Saturday 18th September.

I would personally like to thank everybody for their understanding and patience in regards holding onto your tickets from our re-scheduled event - That has been much appreciated!

Roll on Saturday 18th September when we open them doors at 10pm with DJs Barry Maleedy, Daz Dakin, Des Parker, Mark Anderson, Emily Jane, Gene Merideth, John Weston, Jordan Wilson, Les Norman, Mark Bicknell, Nige Brown, Richard Free, Sean Chapman and Tony Clarke.

Tickets are now available only at https://wiganrollerrink.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=102

So looking forward to this night.  On the must not miss list . Loved every single one of these nighters, especially the night when the   Wigan forgotten, / underplayed room was on, that was very special.
