In that case online may be your friend.
There’s your problem. Wigan and authentic = mutually exclusive
Authentically shite, I’ll give you that.
Actually, we have a couple of decent breweries here, so it’s not so bad really, and you can have a decent night out in town to be fair.
Shame The Casino’s gone though, it’d do a bomb with the nostalgia crowd these days.
Did you ever go to the Northern Soul all- dayer / all-nighters Rob ?
Not my scene really Allan, but a few of the guys I work with are massively into it, and come back buzzing for days on end, so I wouldn’t mind giving it a go, although I hate dancing and amphetamines so it might be wasted on me…
I do love a lot of the music but have moved away from the “scene” over the years - full of the usual cliques thing
It’s amazing how widespread the Casino scene was spread though. For instance I was in Cornwall at Easter, and in the tiny little village pub I saw a guy with a tattoo of the Casino logo and his membership number*.
He’d lived in Cornwall all his life, and used to drive up after work on Friday, and drive back home Sunday.
*I’ve actually seen this abroad too, including a few yanks who were stationed over here in the 60’s/70’s but still regularly went to the weekenders at the Pontins at Ainsdale etc.
I was too young for the Casino and the Twisted wheel etc but have gone to a fair few weekenders over the years which were brilliant.
There was new revival scene up here but it was full of utter twats so it was then I decided to back off.
Big glassful too
It’s a small bottle
