On the first Saturday of each month, the Monaco Ballroom on Atherton Road in Hindley, near Wigan, WN2 3EU (tel: 01942 255138 or 01942 256212) is the venue for the regular Northern Soul and Tamla Motown nights.
The venue boasts a beautiful maple wood sprung dance floor. The ballroom has a lovely atmosphere and is one of the friendliest venues around and a great hit with dancers. Admission is £5, payable on the door. Venue times are 8 pm till 2 am.
The ballroom is run by Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust, with more information on the council website.
The music policy is across the board Northern soul. The high number of regular DJs means that the promoters have a really good feel for what the audience wants and they play skillfully to the floor. The venue is very much home to people who want to dance and is not troubled by handbaggers.
If your tastes are good traditional Northern with an across the board smattering, then you won't go wrong here. One of my very favourite venues.
