How Many Nighter Venues Have There Been ?

The second most important venue thread has got me thinking. Has anyone ever tried to put together a list of all the nighters there have been over the years ( not including weekenders ), to see how many came and went or are still around. I've listed the one's I have attended ( that I can remember) at some point or other to start

Wigan Casino

Maxim's (wigan )

Cricketers ( wigan )

the old cinema - name escapes me ( wigan )

Clifton Hall

Cleethorpes Pier & Winter Gardens

Bradford Queens Hall

Tony's Empress Ballroom - Blackburn

Morecambe Pier & Carlton Club

Samanthas

Take Two

Coconut / Pineapple Grove - preston ( I know it was something tropical to do with fruit )

Twisted Wheel ( 80's)

Rotters Manchester

Hyde

Parr Hall

Stafford

Windsford

Notts Odd Fellows - Leicester

Hinckley Sports Center & Town Hall ? ( it's where I met the wife I should really remember !! )

Newcastle Upon Tyne - Tiffs ( Mr M's sign over the door I remember )

Dolphin Centre - Darlington

Kirkcaldy

Dundee - was it called Clouds?

Boston - Elizabethan Suite

Peterborough - Wirrana & Fleet

Notts Palais

Derby Assembly rooms

St Ives

100 Club

Leighton Buzzard

Six Hills - Leicester

Barnsley

Middleton

Bidds

Sheridans

I ran it for a year after Stafford closed. DJ's included Butch, Ian Clarke, Guy, Keb, Ady Pountain, Jonathon, Adam, Robin over two rooms, one modern the other northern. From the day we started to the day it closed we were harrassed by the police and thats why it's a hard venue to use. Asked not long ago and the police in the town are just anti allniters. Shame

Went to a couple at Trencherfield Mill about 6 years ago.

The one in Golborne was run by Dean.

Not sure if it's the Miners Welfare Club or summert like that.

It was 1987 for I think 6 nighters. First one upstairs was northern and downstairs modern etc. Northern went downstairs and the upstairs became oldies room, Steve Smith in charge of that one I think??? The December one was Kebs last nighter outside London before going into retirement, got a rousing ovation that went on for ages and Guy was stood there tapping his feet waiting to start his set laugh.gif

Yeah they were a complete set of b*stards!! Stopping the coaches and searching all who entered the car park in town centre!! They caught one person with a bit of gear from the six all-nighters. Think in the end the venue had to concede to the police as they were refused an extension for one of Colliery Brass Bands ph34r.gif

I think the stance of the police may have softened a bit now Dave, other all-nighters from other types of music have been held in the area and other clubs have been open all night. Might be worth a try again wink.gif

No, I ran them all with Danny Everard. It was sort of the end of the Stafford era, everyone went off to do other things after that. But even with the police hassel, they were good fun.

When I said Steve in charge I meant you gave him responsibility for that room, sure thats what he mentioned in conversation about the venue once.

Rob Marriott charging the squad to get in, "don't give a f*ck who you are, tenner (or what ever the entrance fee was back then)" laugh.gif
