Candlelight (Oldham)

The Candlelight Club was in Church Street, Oldham, Lancashire and opened in 1965.

The legendary Candlelight Club was formerly called The Savoy Ballroom.

The club was part owned by Ken Naylor (b. Kenneth Naylor, 1927 d. Friday, October 10, 2014) who took a half share in the club in 1965, shortly after it moved into the-then Savoy Ballroom. This was six-years after he his first attempt at a club, The Ritz Theatre Bar in Rock Street, Oldham (opened in 1959) which he took over in 1959. It seems before that The Candlelight Club was somewhere else as Naylor had taken over the legendary club in 1963.

Naylor also owned The Empire Cabaret Club, Dale Street, Milnrow, Lancashire; The Club Monaco, Church Street, Farnworth near Bolton, Lancashire and The Ritz Theatre, Brighouse, West Yorkshire.

The Candlelight Club closed on Boxing Day, Friday, December 26, 2008.
