The city’s biggest and best regular soul revival night returns to its usual home of 53 Degrees from 8pm to 3am.

Formed in February 2011, The All-Nighters play the very best up-beat Northern Soul with a style guaranteed to get any crowd jumping.

Although based in the south west, they have carved out a reputation as one of the best tributes to the classic soul era for which the Northern clubs became famous from the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The band admit they are excited as this show will be their very first in the real heartland of Northern Soul and they cannot wait to play alongside some of the iconic Soul DJs from the 1970s era that they love so much.

Singer Ade said: “For any of you that have tickets and are concerned about our stamina levels, no need to worry – the adrenalin alone will keep us partying through our set!

“We pride ourselves on 
recreating the sounds of the Twisted Wheel, Blackpool Mecca, Golden Torch and Wigan 
Casino – authentically reproducing the feel of the era.

“We pledge to get you 
dancing and sweating to our 
infectious groove.”

This makes them perfect for Preston’s Got Soul, a night founded by two local lads, Luke Gale, 23, from Walton-le-Dale, and Daniel Gardner, 24, from Lostock Hall, in 2012, with the aim of both reviving the great age of Wigan Casino and clubs like it.

The night has quickly established itself as the Mecca for soul fans both in Preston and across the region.

The pair have pulled off a coup by getting some big names of the soul scene involved.

The night’s regular resident star is a name synonymous with the time – Wigan Casino legend of the decks, Russ Winstanley, who returns this time to mastermind the DJ booth.

And joining him to spin a few discs will be The Golden Torch’s Dave Evison, Preston’s Glen “Windy” Miller and Derek “Smooth” Smith and The Wigan Young Souls.

Tickets are still on sale, priced at £10 advance plus booking fee from the box office on 01772 893000 or online at

On the door on the night, 
entry will be £12.
