Do you remember when Sheffield was cabaret king of England?
The summer of 1970 was a turning point for entertainment in Sheffield with the unveiling of the Fiesta.
The £500,000, purpose-built venue was the biggest nightclub in all of Europe at that point.
It was that sure of its pulling power it even held a date open for Elvis.
The forthcoming ‘Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1970s Sheffield – the Fiesta Edition’ celebrates this legendary institution that truly changed the face of entertainment in Sheffield.
Author Neil Anderson said: “I’m indebted to scores of former staff, clubgoers and artists – without their help I’d had never have been able to complete my latest project.
“The book is packed with rare pictures, memories and anecdotes that take you straight back to an era when a chicken-in-a-basket meal was all that stood between you and the biggest stars on the planet.”
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the shots:
The book gets it official unveiling in mid-October but, before that, 100 collector’s edition copies are available on a first come, first served basis.
Each one is numbered and personally signed and comes with a free gift – a special pull-out listing of every headline act that ever performed in the venue’s 10 year history.
