Welcome to South Yorkshire


Sheffield's and Rotherham's blast furnaces and the coal pits of Barnsley and Doncaster may have closed long ago, but the hulking reminders of that irrepressible Victorian dynamism remain, not only in the old steelworks and pit heads (some of which have been converted into museums and exhibition spaces), but also in the grand civic buildings that grace Sheffield's city centre, fitting testaments to the untrammelled ambitions of their 19th-century patrons.

Bar & Club queue jump entry Party Pass

Start your evening by visiting the bars on your Party Pass, again, if there is a queue, you can just walk straight to the doorstaff and give them your name to get straight in (R.O.A.R). Then, you can head to the nightclubs for your free entry and queue jump, to party until the small hours :) These Passes are perfect if you don't know the town/city you are staying in, as you don't need local knowledge. Also, if a venue is busy, but not to your particular taste, you can leave and head on to the next one on the list without wasting time or money.Once you have booked, we will send you a confirmation email with the list of venues, recommended entry times and maplinks that you can open in Googlemaps on your phone if you get lost. This Pass includes entry for 6 to 8 venues (the full list and venue details will be on the confirmation we send you). We don't list the venues here because the venues may vary depending on which have the best offers & the best night on.
