Wigan Casino Dance Competition Winners by year

Posted

Following on from my reply in the 'Greatest Dancer' thread surely between all the knowledgeable people on here we can cobble together some sort half decent list of all the Dance Competition winners at Wigan Casino eh?

People mean well but the trouble is time and fading memories play havoc with the fine details required. (I think my mate Bob from Yorkshire won it sometime in the late seventies, I remember it 'cos I was watching Ena Sharples on Coronation Street at the time......)

How many years did the Dance Competitions run?

Photographs of the winners would be brilliant.

Steve Caesar from Leeds won the first one. Gethro Jones of Wolverhampton was third. A young lady was second but I do not know her name - she might have been the lass who featured in This England, a laundry worker from Leigh but I’m very hazy on this.
