Stoke on Trent is the main backdrop for the feel good, coming of age film Soulboy; set around the Northern Soul underground music scene. Soulboy is out now for general release, visit the official Soulboy website: www.soulboythefilm.com.
A host of venues across the city were used in the shooting of the new movie SoulBoy, including the Kings Hall in Stoke which played the part of legendary Wigan Casino (shut in 1981).
The Independent have today named it as the film of the week, by a distance. Read Anthony Quinn of The Independent’s review here.
