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 Limit venue has spanned generations. Originally opening as a punk venue in 1978 - it hosted everything from the first UK live outing of the B-52's to some of the earliest gigs by Sheffield artists like the Human League and Def Leppard.
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 Limit-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 late 1970s, 1980s and early 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.
