The Leadmill is Sheffield’s longest running live music venue and nightclub.  It first opened its doors in 1980 and has hosted some of the biggest live acts in the world.  It has been voted as Sheffield’s best live music venue on numerous occasions and has also won national awards including from the NME and Live UK. Over the years the likes of Pulp, Culture Club, The Cult, The Pogues, The Housemartins, Suede, Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream, Coldplay, Muse, Oasis, The Stereophonics, The Strokes, The White Stripes, The Stone Roses, Kings of Leon, Kasabian, The Killers, Bloc Party, Arctic Monkeys, Paul Weller, James, The La’s, and Richard Hawley are just a few of the acts to have graced the Leadmill stage. The Leadmill is now firmly established as Sheffield’s premier live music venue and as one of the most renowned venues on the live music scene.  Franz Ferdinand once told the Arcade Fire that playing the Leadmill was seen as a “right of passage” and seasoned acts still recall the time they played the venue and opt to play here when they could be filling much larger venues instead.

Absolutely fabulous service from the venue staff over recent concert postponements. Communication by e-mail and phone. Cannot rate them highly enough. Thank you and we will see you when this nightmare is over.
