Wigan Casino: The
Heart of Soul
This exhibition, which
closed on Saturday 26
February, has been one of our most
successful in recent times, attracting
visitors from all over the country,
including Newcastle, Coventry and
Nottingham! The most popular exhibit
was undoubtedly the archival video
footage of dancing at the Casino and
scenes from around Wigan during the
Casino era. Visitors were encouraged to
write down their thoughts about the
Casino (or the Empress Ballroom) and
what it meant to them. We ended up
with a book full! Typical of the remarks -
“it wasn’t a building - it was a temple
you had to go to”, “my husband and I
would come from Liverpool after he had
finished DJ’ing in a club at 2am”, “the
Casino lives on in our hearts and minds
and we will ‘Keep the Faith’ until the day
we die”. Strong stuff indeed! These
contributions to the history of the Casino
will join other archival material in our
local history collections and will be
available to all with an interest in the
Casino and the popular culture of the
1970’s and 80’s.

Am I the only one that was drinking around Wigan in he 60’s and 70’s who never heard of Northern Soul? I think Russ Winstanley was in the same house as me at school.

I think you have said the operative word 'drink' Soulies did not drink and in the 1970's you tended to be a rocker, Bier Keller, Blooto's wearing denim and leather etc or if you were a Souly, you only went to the allnighter at the Casino and as I remember the boozers did not like the Northern Soul lot, because they didn't drink ....

Looking back though, if you ignore the drugs thing, the Northern Soul people were a decent lot, who were into the music and the dancing, the rockers were just piss heads clown
