Watch the exclusive trailer for Northern Soul, the new film about the youth movement centred on the north of England in 60s and 70s.

It tells the tale of two Northern boys whose worlds are changed forever when they discover black American soul music, which became phenomenally popular with British youths in the 1970s, taking the North of the country by storm. Northern Soul intends to appeal to those generations of fans while attracting a modern audience who can relate to youth culture from another era. If you were there, you’ll know. If you weren’t there, you’ll wish you had been.

The directorial debut from photographer Elaine Constantine features Ricky Tomlinson, Steve Coogan and Lisa Stansfield. 

Northern Soul is set for release in the UK on 17 October this year.
