Arundel Gate’s legendary Roxy nightclub returns on Saturday, May 9 and is set to raise hundreds for Hallam FM’s Cash For Kids charity.

The event follows the success of a Roxy reunion night and sell-out book in 2019.

Former Roxy-goer James Norton said: “It was a truly fantastic night – they got it bang on. I loved the Roxy in its heyday in the late 1980s and this night took me straight back to my youth.”

Hundreds packed into Arundel Gate’s O2 Academy to witness the venue being turned back into its former Roxy nightclub guise.

The sprawling venue reined supreme in Sheffield in the 1980s and 1990s and the re-creation of the club which will be recreated once again in the spring and promoters have been thrilled by interest in the reunion event to celebrate one of the city’s most iconic venues.

The Roxy became famous nationally as one of the venues for the ‘Hitman & Her’ TV series. Everyone from Kylie Minogue to the London Boys performed there.

With a capacity in excess of 2,000, and one of the most jaw-dropping lightshows in the country, few venues were more high profile than the Roxy.

Local author Neil Anderson used the event to gather photos and memories from former club-goers and recently launched a special Roxy edition of his best-selling ‘Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1980s Sheffield’ which has been a massive success.

He said: “I couldn’t believe the interest in the venue – people have very fond memories of the place.”
