All good things must come to an end!!? Or does it! 

Even the Highland room had more than one last night! Because it really didn't close then!!

It went on in a different format for several years after that. With many Northern Soul alldayers and Soul nights held in the Highland room, to great success and into the early 80's!

Just a bit of nostalgia🙂!

Last trip must have been around 80 or 81 which was a 're opening' one off event, or so it was advertised as.

Realistically though, those lucky enough to have been there at the beginning really were spoiled.
