The influence of most clubs are consigned to the decade they operated in and the people that frequented them.
But the impact of Sheffield’s Roxy venue has spanned generations. With a capacity in excess of 2,000, this place had one the most jaw-dropping light shows in the country and became famous nationally as a base for the ‘Hitman & Her’ TV series.
And even today, over two decades after it shut, the Roxy reunions are still sell-outs!
That's why we decided it was to be one of four venues that would feature in a partnership with celebrated up-and-coming artist Alan Pennington.
He has re-imagined the venue with the help of scores of Roxy-goers that provided memories and memorabilia. The Dirty Stop Outs has worked with him to provide a unique depiction of this truly iconic venue that influenced the lives of thousands of people in the 1980s and 1990s.
Only 100 collector's edition prints are available. They are individually signed, numbered and now come with a certificate of authenticity.
Alan Pennington is a rising star of the Sheffield arts world with his work increasing in value year-on-year.
The framed print is available in two sizes and is printed onto premium gloss 210gsm paper. All framing is done by hand and everything is made to order.
