Marvellous how the council are now embracing Wigan Casino and Northern Soul after so aggressively trying to shut the place down.

They used undercover cops to catch the drug dealers at the All Nighters.

They didn't stand out much in their macs and boots. Very Happy

A top Wigan Casino DJ has spoken of his pride after receiving the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

Richard Searling, who was the resident deck-spinner at the famous Northern Soul venue for seven years starting in 1974, said he was honoured to receive the accolade.


He received the BEM for services to the soul music industry and community in the north of England.

The 66-year-old was put forward for the honour by listeners to his radio shows

He said: “I’m delighted and honoured. It’s a reflection of my life in music and something tangible and very prestigious.



“It’s important to me that this raises the profile of the music, which has lasted the test of time and is something people identify with.

“We’ve kept flying the flag and playing the music and I think the community benefits from all the work that goes into that.

“Northern Soul is something the north of England can be proud of and our area is the best-known of all.
