    There were people somersaulting backwards on the dance floor or leaping and twisting in the air like acrobats

    Both times I hung round in corner with mates as we dared each other to get up and try it ....no takers as we knew we would get a right showing up next to the regulars

    They even went to toilets, stripped down ,got washed and full change of clothes as the night went on so they were fresh again for the next bout of near gymnastics

    Still awestruck all these years later
    Hi i used to go to wigan with my sister it was great, we used to have such a great time dancing to the northern soul, these were the days,

    My Dad liked the music, but didn't go to any of the all-nighters because he was a bit old for that kind of thing & my Mum wouldn't have been keen on it either. He got a really good double CD of NS songs a couple of year ago.

    My mum often tells me of her many nights out at Manchester's Twisted Wheel...Long before Northern Soul reached Wigan. A regular at the Twisted Wheel was a lad by the nickname 'Rubber Legs Milton'. I'll leave that image with you.

    Does anyone think that the current number one by Cee-Lo Green is just trying *too* hard to be a modern-day Northern Soul record?

    I remember Wigan all nighters quite well, although I never attended myself, as I was not into Northern Soul. Wasnt it Wigan Casino?
