What we're about

A place for friendly group drinks, live music, meals out, theatre/ cinema trips and enjoying some of the many things to do in and around Sheffield. All ages encouraged - everyone's welcome!

I want the group to be a welcoming place for people who are new to the area or want to get out there and meet new people locally. I'm open to ideas and suggestions, but I'd like to keep things as cost-friendly as possible to encourage people to come along.

Upcoming events (5+)

BlackWaters, Desperate Journalist, Do Nothing + more

First event! I'm going to this gig anyway, so it seemed like a good place to start. I've not heard anything by BlackWaters yet (but have heard from a few people that they are very good), but I've seen Desperate Journalist a few times and always really enjoyed them. Do Nothing are another where I've heard good things and I'm sure I've probably seen Nervous Pills in the past. Doors are 5pm, so an early start. Tickets are £13.45 inc. fees.

Guildford, UK but Sheffield living. Taking influences from British punk circa '76. rebooting it with big tunes. From support slots with Killing Joke & The Libertines to nation wide headlines. ON.THE.UP Desperate Journalist - DESPERATE JOURNALIST are a post punk band, formed in North London. They consist of Jo Bevan (vocals), Simon Drowner (bass), Rob Hardy (guitar) and Caz Hellbent (drums). Lured together by fate and a fierce sense of what makes alternative music actually really bloody alternative they started their journey at the local Negative Creep grunge club night in Finsbury Park on February 23rd 2013 and have barely looked back since. After self-releasing debut EP Cristina they were quickly signed by Fierce Panda, who released Organ and Happening as singles, leading to their debut album, Desperate Journalist, in November 2014. The Quietus, reviewing said album, described them as beautiful and spellbinding. Drowned in Sound said that they had effortless grace and praised Bevan vocals. Do Nothing Nervous Pills - Alternative/Grunge/Rock trio from Sheffield. From support slots with JOHN, Heavy Lungs and Yowl plus a sold out Sheffield headline these gents are not one to be missed. Realise the hype *PLUS MORE TBA*

Kommune Food & Drinks Night

Kommune

Food and drinks at Kommune. If you've not been before, it's a large room with several food kitchens so you can choose what type of food you want but all sit together as a group. There's also a great bar too, so people can relax, have a drink and some food if they would like. It's a new group so not sure how many takers we'll get, but I'll hope to see some of you there. From Kommune's site: Bringing together some of the most exciting independent kitchens and traders from across the country, Kommune is a social all-day dining experience, situated in a unique Grade II listed building at the very heart of Sheffield.
