A couple of our married friends, both celebrated their 50th Birthdays this week, and we're going to their party tonight. They are avid Northern Soulers' and so looking forward to a trip down memory lane, got my flatties, ready to hopefully have a good old dance into the wee small hours. Should be a great night, and it will take me back to the 70's, but I will probably be suffering tomorrow, my bones ain't as good as they used to be, lol

:yipee: :yipee: :yipee:

Oh those Soul Nights at Wigan Casino!

Used to drive up from Kent on Friday nights, sleep in the park during Saturday. Go to the all-nighter and then drive home Sunday daytime.

They were absolutely brilliant Alan, we were only a 45 min drive away and coaches used to leave from Rigby Road Bus Station in Blackpool, ahhhh the memories, I know tonight will be a very late one, but well worth it, lol. The body's weak but the mind will be willing, haha.

Couldn't remember who sang that - just checked on U Tube - Chuck Wood - loads of fab clips on there of the msuic and dancing at the Casino - I'm spending the rest of my evening now playing Northern Soul and reminiscing. - I was born and bred in Wigan - so spent a lot of time at the Casino - used to go to Blackpool Mecca sometimes too. Aaah Northern Soul - nothing better to put me in a happy upbeat mood!

My husband works at Grand Arcade Shopping Centre, in Wigan, this is the former site of Wigan Casino. For the last two years in conjunction with Russ Winstanley, the founder D.J. of Wigan Casino, they have staged a Wigan Casino all nighter in the shopping centre. The first year they had Dean Parrish as headline act, last year they had the flirtations. This year they are hosting a 35th anniversary allnighter at Grand Arcade Shopping centre on the 29th of August, headline still to be announced, but all the original Wigan Casino D.J.s will be playing a set, including Russ Winstanley. People who have attended these evenings have travelled far and wide, one last year came from Perth, now theres a northern soul fan!!! Should be a good night again, but we will miss it because we are on holiday in Turkey. Added bonus as well is that you get to meet George Formby statue, and since his recent relocation, he will probably be situated slap bang in the middle of the dancefloor covered in talc, and you can have a bit of a slide with him lol

We're off to the Cinema tonight to see "The Men who stare at Goats" I've heard it's very funny, not been to the pics for ages, wonder if it's still 9d, to sit in the back row?
