The Swan in Worksop is one of 24 venues across the UK that will be taking part in a special Northern Soul All-Weeker to coincide with the release of the soundtrack to youth culture film Northern Soul, directed by award-winning photographer Elaine Constantine.

The film and soundtrack release is being celebrated at The Swan tonight (Friday, 12th September) and a packed dance floor is expected as Northern Soul fans come together to celebrate the scene.

Northern Soul is released 17th October and tells the tale of the DJ-led movement that developed in the North of England in the mid-seventies, sparked by the discovery of black American soul music.

The film stars Steve Coogan, John Thomson, Ricky Tomlinson and Lisa Stansfield and is a story of a youth culture that changed a generation and influenced songwriters, producers, DJs and designers for decades to come.
