NORTHERN SOUL FLASH MOB AT GWA
A taster for the upcoming The Big Birmingham Soul Night event at Town Hall, Birmingham in February 2018.
Only just over two years old, the intimate The Night Owl has become renowned as the UK’s premier soul & retro club. Last April they teamed up with the prestigious Town Hall for the biggest soul night Birmingham has seen in over 30 years.
The Big Birmingham Soul Night harked back to soul nights of the 60s and 70s, was programmed by The Night Owl and held at Town Hall, Birmingham. This beautiful listed building boasts a giant wooden floor, perfect for Northern Soul and Mod style dancing, with an elegant balcony for those who would prefer to just relax and enjoy the dancing below. There was also a smaller second room of music, with its own bar and seating.
The launch event was a big hit, reaching capacity by 11pm, with happy faces and both rooms 1 and 2 full of people dancing to good soul music. Feedback from the event was incredible, with original Northern Soul DJs Colin Curtis and PEP calling it ‘the best soul night in Birmingham’, finally putting the city on the map for Northern Soul.
Confirmed to head up this evening is legendary DJ Soul Sam who has been DJing in soul clubs since 1968. His favourite records include Joseph Webster’sMy Love Is So Strong and The Velvelettes’ These Things Will Keep Me Loving You.
