The Twisted Wheel, the Blackpool Mecca and the Wigan Casino were some of the venues in northern England that catered for a fascination with American soul music in the late 1960s and 1970s.
Film-maker Elaine Constantine, who is making a film about the movement, told BBC Breakfast that it could make a comeback.
Music producer and Northern Soul fanatic, Pete Waterman, said the music "will never go out of fashion".
