The Harley announces closure
One of Sheffield’s most well-known venues, The Harley has closed its doors with immediate effect due “mounting financial pressures”.
Known for its gigs, club nights and as the home of Sheffield food institution the Twisted Burger Company, The Harley will hold memories for the majority of people who’ve lived in Sheffield past and present.
In a Facebook post, the Harley said: “It brings us great sadness that we have to shut The Harley with immediate effect. Mounting financial pressures, much like many other music venues across the country, means that the business was no longer viable.
“The Harley, over the years, has been a beacon for new music, bands, and grassroots promoters and a home for the fantastic independent restaurant, Twisted Burger Company. The venue may have come to an end, but the memories will live on.
Any future events booked in for the venue will be moved to another venue, with the Harley team working with local promoters to ensure they go ahead. The team appear to be working on a new venue in the city centre. “Our events and music department, and key promoters, have begun working on a new city centre event space which will be announced very soon.
The Harley has also promised that Twisted will continue, with news to be released on that soon.
