Barfly To close operations in Sheffield...

During the time we were based at the NCPM, Barfly provided a platform
for more new touring and local artists than any other venue in
Though we struggled to break even, in my opinion this was a totally
worthwhile venture.

Many viewed our organisation as outsiders, overlooking the fact that all
the Barfly Sheffield staff were locally-recruited. We all worked
extremely hard to make the venture successful.

Yorkshire Forward was good enough to give us no more than two weeks
notice to vacate the NCPM. We found a temporary home at the venue Zero
and were able to honour most of the events contracted.=20
Despite the cooperation of the owners at Zero, the venue's operating
restrictions and the associated financial losses have made it impossible
for us to continue there.=20
The search for a permanent home has been fruitless, and subsequently, as
of the 5th December, we are suspending our operations in Sheffield
(another home run for Yorkshire Backward).

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has
supported us and to apologise to those that feel we've let them down.

If anyone knows of a suitable alternative site, we're still open to

Good luck with the NCPM, it's a great iconic building that deserves a
great future.

Best regards
