We’re celebrating 10 Years of Nightclubs!!!

This year is the 10th Anniversary of our first nightclub!!

Originally planned as a one-off event, who would have thought we would still be going strong after 10 years?!!!

We celebrated our birthday in style at The Leadmill with 450 clubbers, DJs and guests. Here are some photos….

Under the Stars Nightclubs are on the Move

After 8 and a half happy years at the hubs, we have now taken the decision to move to the Leadmill. The hubs is changing the building which means it will no longer be a space where we can run our events from.

We are so excited to be working with the Leadmill. It is a super amazing venue, full of Sheffield music scene history. The staff are all great too so we look forward to all our clubbers coming and partying with us.

Our December night has had to move to the 3rd of December and all our Sheffield events will now run from 7.00-10.30pm.

We look forward to seeing you all there

New website is go!

New website launch. With the financial support of Santander and with a very kind support from Mike at this is our space we finally have a new website which showcases all our work. We hope people you like it. Keep visiting us and checking for our updates
