New nightclub FØRGE set to open in Sheffield next month

A brand new nightclub is coming to Sheffield next month, with owners promising a focus on electronic music.

FØRGE will be located in a former Victorian steel forge on Effingham Road, just outside of the city centre. Organisers are promising a "vast programme" full of both local and international act.

The venue, which will be allowing punters to dance until 6:AM, looks out across Tinsley Canal and The Workroom, an independent cinema and cafe.

Due to the lot's large are of outdoor space, organisers behind FØRGE are hoping the venue will be able to host outdoor events too.

Behind the club is director Richard Welch who has been involved with the nightlife of Sheffield since spending his youth DJing and promoting events in the area.

Welch told Mixmag: “There are great venues here in Sheffield, a real history and community. Perhaps what makes us different is our space. It’s unconventional as a music venue, but that is the attraction. We hope to bring something different to Sheffield, that was always our intention.”

He adds that: “Our relationship to electronic music has and always will be as enthusiasts first. We’re a collective of anoraks that have been around the industry for a good number of years, whether it be as promoters, performers or just consumers of the music. We’ve built a great time of like-minded people around us that really love the underground, I hope that will translate as we release our schedules.”
