ON August 17, 1991, thousands headed to a legendary all-night acid house rave at Roosecote sand quarry.

Digging through the Evening Mail's picture archives has uncovered photographic evidence of those who attended - do you recognise yourself in any of these snaps?

The rave cost £60,000 to stage and featured "a huge 85-kilowatt sound system, lights, lasers, a fairground, projections, dance platforms, top DJs, live bands and more", according to a report ahead of the event.

Clubbers filled the huge dancefloor from 8pm to 8am with the organisers describing it as being like "the days of Wigan casino".

The rave was organised by Barrow businessmen Paul Snowden and Paul Webber, in conjunction with party promoters Nemesis.
