With their 2017 debut album 'Live For The Moment’, Sheffield quartet The Sherlocks established themselves as key contenders in a new wave of British bands keeping alt-rock and indie vital for a new generation of fans. The album fired into the charts at #6 as the band inspired devotion wherever they went, from shows with Liam Gallagher, an international array of festival dates to rapturously received shows in Japan. The Sherlocks will be at The Venue, Derby as part of a UK tour this October.
Emerging early 2020, the Derby-hailing trio quickly drew keen attention and praise through their three singles to date, each luring increasing support and play across radio shows and stations globally. The threesome of vocalist/guitarist Brooke, bassist Anna Melidone, and drummer Mary Prince have bred a sound embracing a fusion of Alternative Rock and Grunge. It is a proposal proving as feral as it is radiant and fuelled by personal and observational experience.
in support of the release of her new album ‘Choices’ we are delighted to welcome Lucy Spraggan back to Derby this December
THE BROS. LANDRETH
after playing Derby a couple of times in the past we are delighted to welcome slide guitar, blood harmony, and heart-on-your sleeve songwriting from The Bros. Landreth to The Venue on 15 March 2022
AN EVENING WITH JOHN FURY
In association with Gold Star Promotions we are delighted to welcome an evening with John Fury! Come and meet the man of the moment and hear his stories up close and uncut. These are evenings not to be missed!
THE CLONE ROSES & THE SMITHS LTD
The infamous Christmas night out with Clone Roses and The Smiths Ltd is back at The Venue on Friday 3 December. These shows have sold out year on year with tickets available now for 2021. The Stone Roses appeared to have now split up, so for Roses fans there is only 1 option to hear those songs played with the same passion and energy as the real thing. Their attention to detail is second to none, with the band acquiring the same clothing, instruments and usually play the same set as The Roses themselves.
BEANS ON TOAST
Foolhardy Folk Musician Beans on Toast will be doing a tour of some of his favourite independent venues this December. Singing simple songs about complicated subjects, the accomplished songwriter will be offering some hope and light relief from this bizarre world we find ourselves in. Festival favourite and veteran of the road, he can't wait to crawl out of the cocoon and get back to doing what he Loves. Expect songs, stories, laughing, drinking, thinking and celebrating.
back for another high energy performance, our good friends Ferocious Dog will return to Derby on Sunday 17 October. More than a band, they are a family. “To listen to the Ferocious Dog as it snarls and growls at the world is to show responsibility” said a Louder Than War review of their brilliant, recently released and Fake News And Propaganda album, but this is an outfit that shows compassion too.
THE WEDDING PRESENT
"The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the 'Rock 'n' Roll' era. You may dispute this but I'm right and you're wrong!" - John Peel... we are delighted to announce the return of The Wedding Present to Derby on 6th August 2021.

Arguably the band’s most controversial release (the band considered it as a protest album), not only did it do more than anything in pop culture to encourage a generation to become vegetarians, it was the first album to introduce Morrissey’s criticism of the Royal Family. The Smyths present “Meat is Murder “ + more is a 2 set 2 hour show that will celebrate the album in it’s entirety alongside Smiths classics and hits.
