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.

That was Golborne Catholic Club.........

The famous one round these parts, from the late sixties, was Harrisons Hoist in Earby. It was just two terraced houses. Coffee bar downstairs, and just empty bedrooms upstairs, bare floor boards, and a tiny room with window onto the "dance floor" for the DJ. Us kids were allowed in till midnight, then we were booted out when all the cool dudes from Manchester came in on the last bus. Really atmospheric place. Closed because of the usual drugs perception....

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)" :D

Swan hotel in Mansfield also Matlock pavilion/coalville tiffanys and my local youth club from the seventies The Westfield Folkhouse.Mansfield pailais which was arranged by Rob Marriott very nearly had a allnighter in the early 90s tickets sold the lot but got cancelled at the last minute due to several issues :( .I think the bnp party got the blame :thumbsup: has they were recruiting in the area at the time.Maybe someone on this message board knows different.

I honestly don't ever remember an allnighter at Wolverhampton Civic Dave (not saying you're wrong) they were in the adjoining building, The Wulfrun hall usually.

Also in Wolverhampton there was a nighter at the Whispering Wheels aka the Rollerdrome (opposite where the Cats used to be) and a long running and excellent allnighter at St Giles Youth Club in Willenhall (aka Sammies), that was my first ever nighter. Also we had a nighter at Wombourne Youth Club the week after Wigans 4th anniversary and it was rammed.

And Swanage, Dorset, I DJ'd there, god the memory is getting poor

Swanage, yes Dave, two nighters in total both held at The Durlston Court Hotel, Durlston, Swanage a sleepy little Dorset seaside town that for two times in it's history got some soul.

I've attached some pics from the nighter(s).

Another one I remeber was Orton Goldhay, Peterborough, it was in a sporting complex if memory is correct, anyone else remeber this venue?
