The Leadmill is the longest running live music venue and nightclub in Sheffield, England, based on Leadmill Road, lying on the south-east edge of the city centre. It opened in 1980 in what, despite its name, was a former flour mill, originally as a Community Centre. This coincided with the rise of several Sheffield bands, including the Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, Heaven 17 and ABC.

The venue has prided itself on the variety of its events over the years hosting live music, comedians, theatre productions, record fairs, cabaret, drag and talks.

  • 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...  more »
  • Been going here on and off for as long as I can remember, still an amazing live music venue. Great beers, great acoustics, even the door staff are nicer these days!  more »
  • Was a bit reluctant about booking tickets for the Total Stone Roses, as my wife can’t stand up for long, but Alex in ticketing kindly arranged for seating on our arrival. Brilliant venue to watch...  more »

  • A great place and worth visiting. It has been there entertaining people for some decades. So many memories. Always had such a great time. Especially on Thursdays. Loved it, Loved it. Going back every time I am visiting Sheffield.
  • I love leadmill with a passion but the floor in the main room is too slippery I went a couple weeks ago and fell snapping my front tooth in half, it only takes one person to fall wrong for there to be a serious accident and the main room floor is definitely a major concern. Other than that it's an amazing club and I love going (even if I've left half my tooth there)
  • God I love this place for a good night out or watching live bands. The staff are helpful and mostly decent beers. The different nights they put on are good all round music tastes. Its accessible within reason going to be crowded on busy nights The live music has good views of the stage and the sound quality is mint.
  • Cool place with reasonably priced drinks but it's definitely a niche club. If indie-rock is your thing then this is for you!
  • Great night club, their events are always fun and quite cheap, bar staff seem nice enough but could do with a couple more, service is slow on peak nights and their drinks selection seems limited but nice and cheap.
