Bring Me The Horizon frontman, Oli Sykes, is set to open a vegan 'barcade' in Sheffield next week.

The Church is set to open in Osborn Works in Rutland Road, Kelham Island on Friday, July 6.

Bring Me The Horizon frontman, Oli, is believed to have come up with the idea after visiting a similar establishment during a recent trip to South America.

“Our building has incredible heritage and I wanted to develop a concept that truly celebrated and developed that legacy," Sheffield-born Oli told Kerrang.

He added: “We wanted something that fitted with William John Hale’s original and stunning design [of the building] but provided something to wow 21st century customers. Our strap line is ‘Temple of Fun’ - we provide a whole experience.”

The venue will be the new home of Sheffield favourites, Make No Bones, who are set to introduce a brand new vegan menu.

Make No Bones vacated their premises on Chesterfield Road last month, and confirmed they would be setting up shop in Church this weekend.

There will also be a vegan-friendly bar at the venue, which has a capacity of 220.
