Sheffield now holds the claim to the world's smallest mobile nightclub, as proven by the Guinness Book of Records.

City based Ged Jenkins-Omar and club partner Stephen Robson officially broke the record at Rotherham Carnival last September.

After waiting for several months to have the evidence verified, ‘Club 28’ as it is known officially, was awarded the world record last month.

To achieve the record, the club had to be smaller than the previous record holder ‘Rumours’ nightclub which was awarded the title in 2011.

Rumours measured 2.10m (6ft 8in) high, 1.17m (3ft 10in) wide and 1.78m (5ft 10 in) deep but was beaten by Club 28 which measures 2.01m (6ft 6in) high, 0.92m (3ft) wide and 1.53m (5ft) deep.

The rules also stated that the club must have a sound system, lighting, dancefloor, turntables operated by a DJ, a bouncer, a name for the club and must charge entry for people wishing to go inside which was 50 pence on the day.

The club plays a mixed genre of music from House to Soul with even some Bangra thrown in for good measure. DJ’s on the day were Sam Cawley and 'Dangerous Nile' who kept the customers smiling and laughing throughout the record attempt.

Following the carnival the club has been on exhibition at the Old Market Gallery in Rotherham and is now on show at Storrs Wood Gallery in Sheffield.

The club has undergone a full makeover and is expected to tour the country later this year in time for festival season.
