O2 Academy Sheffield

The O2 Academy Sheffield was once a city landmark: Roxy's nightclub, site of many a student night out and a long-term venue for the 80s TV show The Hit Man and Her. After teetering on the brink of demolition for years, it was acquired by Academy Music Group in 2007 and now has a small venue in addition to its 2350-capacity auditorium.

Sheffield station is a few minutes' walk away, on the other side of Sheaf Street. Sheffield Coach Station is on adjacent Pond Street, and the venue is located on top of a multi-storey car park.
