Wigan Casino ran from 1973-1981 and is arguably the best known and most talked about Northern Soul all-nighter. Whether you attended or not, the iconic venue has earned its place in Northern Soul history. At this unique event, join original DJs Richard Searling (via audio), Gary Rushbrook, and Ian Wills, along with highly respected stalwarts Tim Ashibende, and Tim Brown for a question-and-answer panel event that will discuss the part Wigan Casino played on the soul scene, the myths, the truths, as well as highlighting the venues that followed.

Hosted by Dr Paul Sadot, director of ‘Once Upon a Time in Wigan’ and advisor for the film ‘Northern Soul’, expect lively conversation, explosive stories, and an emotional look back at some of the amazing venues that we have been treated to over the last 50 years. We will look at the incredible records that were discovered, the DJs that played them, and the memories that were made.
