If you fancy a Friday night boogie, Buxton’s Octagon is the place to be as it is transformed into a Northern Soul club reminiscent of Wigan Casino, The Torch and The Twisted Wheel.
The fifth Buxton Soul Night takes place at the Pavilion Gardens venue tomorrow (Friday), with a large dance floor and bar until 1am.
The Northern Soul music, dance and fashion movement originally emerged from the British Mod (underground rhythm and soul) scene in the late 1960s, but by the early 1970s northern soul dancing became more athletic, resembling the late dance styles of disco and break dancing.
Taking audiences on this musical journey will be six outstanding DJs, who will be spinning the vinyl between 8pm and 1am.
Taking to the decks with a mix of 100 per cent oldies, rare and not so rare Northern Soul tracks, will be Ian Gee, Pete Eccles, Sean Chapman, Nige Brown and Daz Dakin.
Tickets for the 5th Buxton Soul Night, priced £7, are available from the Box Office on 0845 127 2190 or online at www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.
