The Roxy nightclub is returning to Sheffield - for one night only!
and live on Freeview channel 276
Over a third of the tickets for the retro Roxy extravaganza – which will raise money for Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids charity – have already been sold.
The sprawling venue, now Arundel Gate’s O2 Academy, reigned supreme in Sheffield in the 1980s and 1990s and the re-creation of the club has got a massive thumbs up from the revellers who are excited to pack out the dance-floor on May 9.
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.”
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.
‘Back To The Roxy’ tickets are available HERE priced from £10
The ‘Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1980s Sheffield – The Roxy Edition’ is available HERE and retails at £13.95.
