Yeah. Ive mentioned this before. I use to obtain entrance many a time "over the roof " Myself and some mates from Clitheroe. Pretty dangerous at times but needs must. Plus it was the devilment of just doing it that drove us on. We did it often. Until the bouncers got wise and were waiting for us when we dropped in. Luckily someother soulies jostled them and we got away into the Casino. The bouncers knew we were from Blackburn and Clitheroe and where we usually based ourselves (left hand at the front near to the toilets) so they hung around that area all night. We had to "gatecrash" someone elses area. That didnt go down to well neither. Scary times sometimes in the Casino. Without a doubt
