Sheffield City Council has placed a restriction on the Public Entertainment License of Corporation live music venue. The restriction means that people under 18 years of age must be segregated from 18+ year old customers with alcohol within the venue.
No similar live music venue in the city has such a restriction. We believe this restriction unfairly discriminates against younger gig goers.
Corporation has been successfully and safely running live events for over ten years. Corporation is one of the top 3 live band venue and alternative music nightclubs in the UK. Having been voted into the top 3 Rock Clubs in the UK by Kerrang and the venue won Best Club Night in the UK, for DROP on Friday nights in Metal Hammer.
We are about to challenge Sheffield City Council through the courts with regard to their decision that the Corporation (and only Corporation) has to segregate under 18s and over 18s at live shows.
If you would like to see this restriction removed, then please feel free to sign our petition here.
Thank you from all the staff at Corporation, all the bands who have played and all the bands who will now play in the future.
