From disco and punk rock to synth-pop and glam metal, the 1970s and 1980s delivered a veritable smorgasbord of musical styles to feast upon.
Whatever your musical genre of choice, there was sure to be a nightclub in Sheffield where you could get your fill and dance the night away. Here’s a retro photo gallery showing some of the top clubs of that era, including The Limit, Fiesta, Roxy, Josephines and Silks.
