Accept and Close

The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Leadmill

Sheffield's legendary Leadmill is celebrating its 40th birthday in 2020. It's not quite the birthday it had in mind, but during lockdown the music venue is continuing to champion live music with a string of live-streamed gigs.

These gigs are all in aid of #SaveOurVenues, a national initiative launched by the Music Venue Trust to prevent the closure of hundreds of independent music venues. If you have a few quid spare, please support the Leadmill and other music venues through its #SaveOurVenues Crowdfunder – donate online.
