FOR those like myself, who sit in a corner on nights out and resolutely refuse to dance to anything, it would have been a nightmare.
But fortunately not everyone is a miserable beggar, and certainly not those at the Wainwright Club at the weekend as the firstly monthly Blackpool Northern Soul Night got off to a flier.
The club was packed (almost 200 there), proving Northern Soul really is making a comeback, as revellers worked up a sweat and boogied till midnight.
The next Northern Soul Night at The Wainwright Club takes place on Saturday February 16.
And don’t forget, the week before there is a Northern Soul All-Nighter - literally - at the Spanish Hall inside the Winter Gardens, which goes on until six in the morning.
It features some of the country’s best DJs and there will be three rooms of classic Northern Soul, Motown/60s Club soul and 80s Boogies.
What more could you want.
Tickets for that are priced £13 and are available at www.ticketmaster.co.uk
