Soul & Motown night

Great venue, big enough dance floor to cater for all the northern soul dancers. Car park a bit small but a really sound nights dancing.

Attend the soul nights at the Ritz, Brighouse and you won't be disappointed. Live music, 1920's decor and smells to suit (smells a bit old!) . Fantastic dance floor, not that I'm a dancer yet it's great to sit round the edges and watch people having great fun. Queuing at the bar is obligatory, this place has its own rules... More

.......and atmosphere to match, with acoustics to match and almost non-existent stage lighting. Sprung dancefloor though! Uncomfortable seats all round the edge, cold (!), too big for the sort of bands playing. If it was rammed-full it might be ok but I douibt it ever is. Don't expect the phone to be answered, nor them to know who the support... More

This is a great place to see some bands, fantastic for a mixed group as the drinks are reasonable so the usual Brighouse idiots do not turn up. Some bands are a bit hit and miss but the tribute bands generally get a good vibe and enthusiastic crowds.

A great 'small' venue foe bands. It's an Old Fashioned Ballroom affair. A bar down each side, mixing desk at the back the rest of the floor is yours! Want to be at the front? Just walk up to the stage! Small balcony runs around the three sides upstairs if your short and need a better view!! Took the kids... More

I absolutely love the Ritz. I'm so glad it was rescued from the brink. My husband and I have seen number of tribute bands here and also been to the Motown nights. We have had a great night every time. The cost is reasonable and drinks are cheap. The clientele is of varied aged and it's good fun to just... More

Recently attended the Ritz Brighouse for the first time to see Diane Shaw as her show in Northampton was cancelled and we wanted to see her. Always thought about attending a Northern Soul night at the Ritz but just never got round to it. The venue was excellent, well ran, clean and a very friendly crowd of people and the... More

I'm so please that someone has rescued this building. Now posters and banners hang outside again advertising groups from the 70s and up to date. I did see a sign that suggested dance lessons will be back. Hopefully Brighouse evens like the 1940s weekend will provide more opertunities to use the Ritz ballroom for band and dance nights. Brighouse has... More
