St Helens Northern Soul, Break Dance and Street Dance Heritage Project

UC Crew would like your stories, photos and memorabilia for a St Helens Northern Soul, Break Dance and Street Dance Heritage Project.

UC Crew has been successful with a funding application to St Helens Cultural Hubs to design, deliver and research the music and dance movements of St Helens spanning from the 1970s till present day. The aim of the heritage project is to bring the community together to celebrate our rich heritage of the Northern Soul, Break Dance and Street Dance movements.

There was currently no documented evidence in 2018 to support that St Helens had a Northern Soul scene, which has now changed from speaking to members of the Northern Soul communities we have found out that the scene has stayed active since the 1970s and has a stronger presence in now, that has done throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

The findings from our research project will be presented at a special exhibition in St Helens during November 2019.


If you want to get involved in the project as a volunteer or to share your stories, photos videos and memorabilia, please e-mail us on hello@uccrew.co.uk or visit www.sthelenscommunityarchive.org.uk
