St James Social Centre, Orrell Soul at the Birchfield is held at the premises of Birchfield Park Sports and Social Club, just off Birchfield Road, Widnes, WA8 9ES, at the junction with Tuson Drive. The venue is home to the local Rugby Union club and on Northern nights, the venue is held in one half of the building, the rest continuing as a Sports and Social club. There is generous car parking on site.

Bar and dancefloor of St James Social Centre, Orrell Soul nites at the Birchfield are held on the fourth Friday of the month from 8pm till 1am, with a 4 admission fee payable on the door. The music policy is stated to be "Current 'In Demanders', Classic Northern and Oldies, The Best in 6T's Soul" - here you will hear the oldies, in particular, those forgotten oldies. There is a guest DJ every month to broaden the music provided by regular spinners Dave Truscott, Chris Penn and Biff.

The promoters have their own website www.birchfieldpark.fanspace.com where venue dates, guest DJs and directions are shown (the flyer for the current year is online).

This is a small but very friendly venue, there is some attendance by local handbaggers but never enough to be troublesome. Note: the bar closes at 11:30, but last orders are never called, so keep an eye out for the shutters starting to come down around 11:15 pm!
