Joyce Edwards (born 1925) opened the Gaslight Club, a women-only disco in Ashton in 1973. The club was very popular and provided a safe space for women from a variety of backgrounds, most of whom were not out in their day to day lives.

The club employed female DJs who played chart hits from the day. The most requested tune around this time was 'When Will I see You Again?' by The Three Degrees.
