The Wigan Casino was a nightclub in WiganEngland. Operating between 1973 and 1981,[1] it became known as a primary venue for northern soul music

Wigan Casino began its weekly soul-nighters in September 1973. [7] At that time, there were soul clubs in virtually every major city in central and northern England. [10] Wigan Casino had a much larger capacity than many competing clubs and promoted its events from 02:00 until 08:00. There was a regular list of DJs, including Russ Winstanley. In 1976, the club had a membership of 100 thousand people, and in 1978, was chosen the number one discotheque of the world by the American magazine Billboard. This was during the heyday of Studio 54 in New York. At the end of the 1970s, the club had its own label, Casino Classics.

 

There were clubs that were far cooler than Wigan Casino. There were clubs more progressive in their evolution of new styles of ‘Northern Soul’. There were clubs for purists, for innovators, for collectors, but if what you really wanted was a club for dancers, then Wigan Casino was the place to go.

 

Was in operation until mid-1981, when a fire destroyed the legendary club

What a cool idea!  I wish I was as talented as you folks. I remember some great gay discos from that era. I remember one in a Boston warehouse in the 1970s that had an infamous back room where the boys engaged in all sorts of interesting activites (the Boston women weren't into semi-public sex, at least not at that place). I remember another in Dallas at the end of the 70s which always had a decent minority of gay women (not just "fag hags" either!).including some who danced topless just because they wanted to. Some guys were doing it, why couldn't they? I never saw, but I heard many stories about the "gay bath house" scene in New York and San Francisco, complete with stage acts (including Bette Midler in 1970). Again, that was mostly for boys. Insofar as I know, women of that era were lucky to have their own friendly corner bar for drinking and talking. I don't remember any lesbian discos.

As a former member of Wigan Casino in the 70's I was a little skeptical about how close in detail this room would be. 

 

Well i had the privilege  to walk round it thanks to the creator and i have to say she got it spot on.  This was a place I attended when i was 16 every Saturday night and is a place very close to my heart even today. So knowing this i was very curious to see if she had manged to model the room as it was then.

 

A massive well done to the accuracy and detail Bialaetcat has put into the room including the research of the history too. On entering the room i immediately stepped back to my youth memories flooding back to me which admittedly was very emotional.   Dancing again on that floor (pose 4 is the closest) listening to the music was something i thought I would never experience again.

 

So for all of you guys curious to see what an iconic venue looked and sounded like then go to Wigan Casino.

 

And for Bialaetcat thank you so much for the tour and doing something that i hoped could be created your a star and a very gifted room creator keep the faith.
