BLACKPOOL Soul Club has been so overwhelmed by demand since starting a monthly night in January that it’s already opened another room.

The club started in the new year to see if the demand for northern soul was still there. Turns out it was. “Incredible is the only word I can use to describe what has happened since we launched the club in January,” said Kevin Mackay, one of the organisers.

“We could never have imagined how successful it would turn out to be. After our opening night we were completely overwhelmed by the interest and support from both local and people from further afield.

“Our second night in February was even better but unfortunately we had to restrict numbers for health and safety reasons. It saddened us having to turn people away and we were determined to do all we could to try and prevent it happening again.

“To a certain degree we have managed to solve this problem temporarily by securing a second room within the Wainwright Club albeit for only a few dates this year.”

The first date with two rooms is on Saturday, with the night starting at 8pm and going until 1am.
