After the Pleasuredrome was closed down, the promoters moved the night to the massive BOWLERS Sports complex in Trafford Park, Manchester. With a capacity of about 5000, the night took off where the Pleasuredrome had ended and LIFE was born.
Bowlers, normally a leisure complex, used to be home to Life, who began holding weekly nights there back in the early 90's. This lasted for several years until Life went bust and other companies came into the frame.
Big names in the old skool world such as Timeless and Seduction took over at Bowlers running successful nights until the late 90's when it was decided that the club would now do monthly events held by Compulsion.
The venue could hold 3-5000 people and original was held weekly from 9pm - 3am. Resident DJs were John Waddiker, Kenny Grogan & Bowa.
Bowlers played it's last Rave event in August 2001, it was a Helter Skelter/Compulsion event. New management took over the venue, and declared no more dance events to be held @ Bowlers!!! Apparently some guy had died a few months B4 and they were going to lose their licence. - http://www.fantazia.org.uk/Scene/orgs/lifebowlers.htm
