Glow in the dark products in the 80’s
The dance and rave culture really started to take of in the 80’s this was helped by clubs like the hacienda in Manchester, this club was archetypal to the creation of the dance culture in Manchester and the north west in general, this also spilled into other towns and cities up and down the UK and so to did all of the glow sticks. People would come from miles around to go to these clubs and raves in order to wave their glow in the dark products frantically and proudly in the air.
