Soul Tram is a Manchester and Salford club night dedicated to soul, funk, and disco. We want to create a fun and friendly dancefloor for everyone to let loose and boogie. This event is queer-led but made for everyone who has a passion for this music.

Think diva vocals, ecstatic percussion, campy lyrics, and a huge helping of funky basslines!

Soul Tram is named in homage to the US TV show Soul Train, with a nod to the tramlines that link up many places across Manchester and Salford.

Dress to impress if you want to. Loud 60s and 70s prints encouraged!

In recognition of the queer Black roots of disco, we will be donating all proceeds after running costs to the Black Trans Foundation.
