Charity Northern Soul night – 23rd October Full details


A special charity music event is bringing some of the UK’s top Northern Soul DJs to Stafford’s ‘Top of The World’. The venue was popular for Northern Soul fans in the 1980s and now the charity Street Child is holding a one-off, all vinyl event in aid of the orphans of Ebola, to be held on Friday 23rd October in the nostalgic Stafford venue.

“All the DJs and the venue management are generously donating their time and services for free,”

says Jane Green, Midlands Fundraiser for Street Child.

“100% of ticket sales will go straight to helping the thousands of children left devastated by this horrific disease. I used to go to the TOTW as a teenager myself and am looking forward to a great night out there again and for a great cause.”
