Event Details

The return of the Ashton Ukrainian continues after a few fabulous nights in 2021 and 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

Well I'm back "on shift" for the next few weekends so this looks like being my next night out.  Last month (April) was my first time here and it was such a good night.

Look forward to Chris's set and of course Baz who has a collection to rival most across any genre.

I'll be early this time Simon so we can get the whole night in 🙃😃

Well just under three weeks to the next instalment at Ashton Ukrainian Club, can't believe we're eight months in from the re-launch in October and gathering new attendees every month.

The word is spreading fast for this fantastic event!! Saturday May 21st is the date for your diary, running 7.30pm-00.30 and just £5 admission, cheap bar prices and unbeatable atmosphere.

Joining Chris Churm this month we have Chris Penn making a welcome return behind the decks along with Culcheth Main Man Baz Maleedy Phil Dunn will be kicking the night off in fine style and Carol Burgess completes a pretty impressive line up. Expect the best in quality rare soul from 60s/70s .

Please arrive early , as a busy night is expected ,see you there!!

Missed this club and clientele so much since my move to the North East.  Looking forward to playing a few tunes, some that are probably associated with my time at The Ukrainian, plus maybe a handful of more recent purchases.

I am a giddy little kipper and there's still 10 days to go!

We're in for a feast of rare soul, dining at the top table. Another one from Baz's box of tricks

It may surprise some that Baz has a penchant for something on the R&B side (as he's more well known for his love of modern and crossover) - but you never know what will happen!!

This was a BVAN (Bury Virtual All-Nighter) spin for Lord Chris Penn, maybe he'll dust it down next week 🎶

That was one of the first in the box Simon.  Have played it at The Ukrainian once or twice, but think it deserves another outing.

Don't think it's featured in any of my sets there Chris but it's worthy of any class night IMO - :thumbsup:

Gonna be the ultimate mix from Baz R+B, Funky Northern, Classics and a few crossover winners!! The next one was a Baz tip from a while back, that is doing great things on the dancefloor already for Simon !!!

Loving the flavours played in the comments here.
Am at a loose end tomorrow night (i.e. solo) so might take the plunge & come to experience my first Ukrainian Club souler.
(Poignant as have worked in UA several times so it's like writing on the wall)
Hope to see you all tomorrow  👣👣👣
