It’s time to dust off your dancing shoes and load up on talcum powder as King City’s favourite club The Night Owl announces the return of their Big Birmingham Soul Night for 2022. Based on Lower Trinity Street in Digbeth, The Owl will be taking over Birmingham Town Hall this February 12 for the fifth time since the club’s launch in 2015.
Bringing back the spirit of the Blackpool Mecca and Wigan Casino’s world famous Northern Soul all nighter, the legend that is Colin Curtis (Golden Torch/Blackpool Mecca) will be headlining the main room, alongside PEP (Catacombs/Wigan Casino/Cleethorpes Pier), ace face mod DJ Adrian Hawkins (AWOL) and Night Owl residents Sonny & Spare, Mazzy Snape and Ed Edwards.
After the success of previous Big Birmingham Soul Nights, The Night Owl will be bringing all the best floor fillers to two rooms inside the historic Town Hall. Soulboys and girls can also expect a mix of mod, disco, funk and more in the second room, whilst the main room will be filled with Northern anthems and classics well into the night.
The Night Owl has become famous across the country for championing retro sounds - and not just Northern Soul. The independently-run club has gone from strength to strength by featuring both tribute bands and local live acts, open-mic nights, Stranger Things, Bowie and Prince-themed club nights, disco dance-offs and much, much more.
In February 2018, shoppers were introduced to the club with a surprise flash mob in the Great Western Arcade, with the aim to show Birmingham why people are so passionate about Northern Soul and the timeless dance moves it’s associated with. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 they were unable to run a flash mob this year, but if you want to relive the moment you can check it out here.
The Big Birmingham Soul Night hosted by The Night Owl at Birmingham’s Town Hall takes place from 9pm until 4am on Saturday, February 12th. The past Big Birmingham Soul Night events have sold out way in advance, with this instalment anticipated to do the same. Tickets are on sale from The Ticket Sellers now.
