No Limit to the memories lining club’s walls...

Have your say

PLANS to reopen Sheffield’s legendary Limit nightclub are continuing apace with bosses launching a search for memorabilia.

Kevan Johnson – the one-time police officer who opened the West Street club in 1978 and is now behind the 2011 reboot – wants old photos, posters and Limit T-shirts to line the walls.

The venue was Sheffield’s most (in)famous night spot, which featured gigs by U2, Pulp and The Undertones, before it shut in 1991.

Now on the 20th anniversary of that closure, Kevan is set to reopen the venue in Furnival Square.

“It’s going to be a club fit for 2011 where young and young-at-heart can go and have a good time but I definitely want it to nod back to its successor, and a memories wall would be a great way to do that,” says the 62-year-old who currently runs the Priory Lodge Hotel in Nether Edge.

He hopes to open in August. Anyone with memorabilia can email
