The Washington is one of Sheffield’s more established music venues, hosting sweaty gigs in its side room since the 70s. The pub was a notorious hangout for local musicians including The Human League and Pulp – the latter's drummer Nick Banks even enjoyed a brief stint as its landlord during the 1990s. It’s now an important venue for Sheffield’s grassroots music scene.
