You will need to contact the DJ’s of the main venues to get contact details of the promoters and management. Trouble is, we are talking about a time 40-50 years ago so any young designer then, could now be 70+. Good luck with your project but I suspect you could find it rather tricky.

I think Russ Winstanley did a rough draft for one of the Wigan Casino patches so you could try to contact him. Russ is a top man and ultra-helpful so that is where I would start.

Thanks, do you have a contact for Russ at all?

Not personally but someone on here will have. I don’t think Russ is on here though. Oddly enough, a distant relative who I have never met is mates with Russ and stands in for him sometimes - one day, I hope to catch up with them both in Wigan.

Thanks Brian, I'm looking for her on Google - but sadly 'no dice'... I'll let you know if I have any luck!

For some reason I can't search for Debbie Troops on Facebook other than one from Manchester who is too young. There is a Debbie Travis who is a successful designer who was born in Blackburn in 1960. That might be her. She is very successful. I'll try to dig a little more....

The cleethorpes patch was done by a girl from Boston,. But I haven't seen her around for over 25 years ,  her name was Denise ? 

I believe there was a competition to do a design .

Sorry guys, but no reply from Debbie Travis. I'm 95% sure it was her but her business is a big concern and the e mail mustn't have been passed onto her, or of course, its just been ignored.

A guy called Jack Wardle (Middlesbrough) was instrumental in designing a few of the badges, he was a graphic designer/artist I believe. I've spoke with him a few times and he said that he still has a book of design's that were never used or rejected.

Jack does not do social media, I can try and get a contact number if needed.
