The Venue

Built in 1858, The Town Hall is a beautiful, ornate grade II listed building with a large, sprung dance floor. The magnificent dance floor is based on a network of woven wood and is described as being one of only two floors of its type. The other is at Blackpool Tower Ballroom. The building has two storeys and at the entrance is a porte-cochere with large arches, above which is a portico (balcony) with six Corinthian columns, behind this is a Venetian window. The arches were built to be big enough for a horse and carriage to drive through and deliver visiting dignitaries to the door. These days, its quite handy when it's raining for loading and unloading the 1/4 tonne of audio equipment required for the soul night.

 

The Music

Across the board Northern Soul played from vinyl. ASC strives to bring the best local and national DJ's to the club. The resident DJ's are joined by guests each month, each playing approximately a 1 hour set. DJ choices can be heard on the Mixcloud links below to give an idea of what you might expect to hear.

 

The Sound System

The house sound system was designed and built by K-Array, an Italian high end audio solutions outfit. Tops are Dragon KX12's and bass is handled by Thunder KM18p's. Total power output is 3.6 Kw

At the opposite end of the Ballroom a pair of  Yamaha dzr12 + pair Yamaha dxs18 subs. 

The subs are running in Cardioid Array Mode which allows change to the bass sonic characteristics from omnidirectional to very directional.

The full system is currently running 8 speakers and 10 amplifiers through two mixers to give 9Kw total power output.

Powerful and inspirational on the dance floor but quiet enough to have a conversation at your table.

2020 we are doing New Years Eve .

Issue we have Town Hall Closes for Christmas period . So we could only use on NYE at higher cost . Same would apply for Last Saturday in December.  Not feasible.  

So as not to clash with other local Club . Who would already have had there Saturday we are doing NYE . All subsequent Years there after .

If successful.  

We has overcome many challenges in our first Year at Accrington Town Hall.  As a Club operating it more Successfully that any predecessor.  

2020 we will be Stronger than ever . As now experienced with what is required.

Last one of the Year .

Over 2000 have attended danced , DJ'd , or simply socialised .

Thankyou for you great support of this Fantastic Soulful Venue . Not many still running to this Standard of Event . 

 

What ever your taste in Soul Music . It gets a spin at Accrington Town Hall. 

From rarest of the Rare or Unknown,  most Modern of recent release . 

Glowing tributes from visiting DJ's money greater than Dave Evison who likened atmospheric to Wigan Casino .

Making journey for first time or returning. 

We welcome with smile at the door . Vibrance 

Unrivalled sound and Dancefloor in The Ballroom.
