The Twisted Wheel Club Manchester - English Heritage Blue Plaque & Street Art Project

Ask yourself this question… Do you love This Club? do you love it enough to help us stop it disappearing forever into history without the recognition it so rightly deserves?   Well...do Ya?   mmmm!   We thought so, so do we :-)  

This project is aiming to gain an award like other historical plaques in the city. To win an award we have to show we are capable of offering the right evidence, following the right criteria ruling, and are capable of funding the cost of the plaque and fitting it. (once the plaque is installed the EHB/NAG/MCC are responsible for its upkeep and maintainance.   However, if we are unsuccessful in our bid, we have a plan B.   And that is to have a piece of street art commissioned to commemorate what this place has helped to achieve, ie: a movement that not only changed musical history but spread all around the world.

It is factually accepted that “The Wheel” is THE birthplace of Northern Soul. and as much as "some" wheelers stay true to their mod/soulboy roots and never entered the strange world of Northern Soul, there is no denying that this is the place where it all started.

Without The Wheel there would have been no Northern Soul scene. If ever there was a worthy cause worth giving to as a soul fan, this is it. We now have that evidence, what we need to do now, is raise the funds to make it happen.
