This event started up in 1995 so it is one of the longest running, same venue Soul nites in the North. I started djing there in 1996 and I haven't missed one month of playing Motown , Soul and Northern Soul to really fantastic appreciative crowds over all of those years. Unfortunately Link4life who manage the Heywood Civic Centre on behalf of Rochdale Council have hiked the room hire price up way beyond an affordable amount. I have therefore had to give them notice that we cannot keep the event at their premises any longer. I realise this maybe sad for a lot of people but just like the Pheonix rising from the ashes, we will move the event to another location and will call ourselves the 'BURY SOUL CLUB'. Venue will be relocated to the Polish Centre in Bury. Meanwhile this will be the final one on Saturday 1st June. A lot of fond memories for a lot of people and the odd marriage gained from meeting at this place ... so thank you to all of those people and hope to see you all on the night. We are also offering the chance for every DJ that has played Soul there over the last 24 years to bring along their Favourite Soul Record of All Time and they can play it on stage during the night (No floor clearers if possible....we know what you are like ha ha)
