Event Details

The return of the Ashton Ukrainian continues after a fabulous night on 16th October we're hoping for another great installment.

If you haven't been before here's a potted history from our very own Chris Churm:

The club was originally based at the  Dukinfield Masonic hall, starting well in January 2017  attended by around 100 guests. Resident DJs were Brian Lester, Chris Churm and Chris Penn.

The venue was great with a large dance floor  and ran until May 2017 when it moved to the Ukrainian Club, a slightly smaller venue (capacity 130) perfect the type of night we were trying to run delivering a mix of lesser known, rare and under played soul; a bit of everything.

The  first date  was June 2017 and was a  great night musically. January 2020 was the 3rd anniversary with guests Phil wainwright and Alex Jones,  respected collector/ DJs to entertain us with their fantastic collections and they were superb, and it was one of our best nights.

Following that in Feb 2020  Les Harrison (one of our regular DJs) and Geoff Stubbs of Stockport were our guests and were excellent as usual .

I must  thank Les Harrison and sue  who were at our first night in 2017 and have only missed the odd one when he has been booked to DJ at Culcheth and our dates unfortunately clashed . He has also helped us to sort the gremlins in the sound system on a few occasions.

Sadly  Brian Lester  who used to play some great tracks decided to bow out from the scene  and our other original DJ maestro Chris Penn moved to the  north east, he  will be missed ,but he has assured us he will be back to annoy us from time to time to DJ for us. .

Here is a list of some of the guys and girls that have played for us and have all taken part in the spirit of our humble Ukrainian club soul evening.

Carl and Maria Willingham, John Hillel, Dave Hall, Chris Penn, Brian Lester, Les Harrison, Derek Watmough, Ian Cunliffe,  Dave Beech, Carol Burgess, Simon Ingham, Mick Howard, Carol-Ann McCarthy, Geoff Stubbs, Geoff Buckley, Tom Dacey, John Baggaley, Dave Flynn, Les Hare, Mark Tobin, Ged Gibbons and Phil Etchells  (sorry if I missed anyone).

As we all know  in March  2020 (just as our guests  Simon Ingham and Mick Howard  were ready to  DJ for us) the pandemic struck and everything stopped but the restart will pick up where we left off and  Simon alongside Mick will be our first guests, hopefully we can bounce back .

Post pandemic the club have informed us that for the night to continue it will have to be a Saturday night event, ironically that is what we first wanted and we think could be better for everyone so keep an eye on the soul source calendar for future instalments.

We hope everyone is well and can’t wait to see you all again.

First time back for me since the lockdown but what a night to return. Was always a great night however a big plus is that the attendance has rocketed.Fabulous sets from all and a packed dance floor which complements the music that was played. Also great to catch up with lovely people.

A big well done to all involved including the lovely bar staff.

Well the second instalment at Ashton Ukrainian was top drawer,packed to the rafters with smiling faces and a full dancefloor throughout the night. A real cross section of our music was on offer,crossover gems underplayed oldies a touch of R+B  and all things inbetween. The bar area speaker was a welcome addition to the proceedings keeping everybody in touch with the sounds on offer.

Nice to see some of the regular crowd back in attendance,not a spare seat to be had !! The Music was off the scale,as we have come to expect at this great club.

The dates going forward are scheduled to run third saturday in the month,apart from this years December date,which is saturday December 11th, due to the Ukrainian Club Christmas celebrations starting early.

Please keep your eyes on the event calendar for further details!!

I'm an early bird when it comes to getting there and leaving. So it was great to catch Chris at the decks (he was earlier than usual in the line-up) who always surprises me with something. Top night.😀👍

Another great night of quality soul music, well attended by an appreciative and knowledgeable crowd, it was fantastic to see many returning following Octobers installment alongside some of the regulars who were otherwise engaged last month - new faces too which is always a good thing!

Musically it was always going to be a night of class with the November line up and it didn't disappoint - an eclectic selection of the rare and underplayed with a few monster dance floor pleasers thrown in for good measure!

I'm now looking forwards to December 11th and let's see what Chris has lined up for us behind the decks!!!!
