The city’s newest venue is set to be one of the biggest pulls of Tramlines this Saturday (July 21st) when a local legend brings his renowned carnival to his hometown.
Producer, Radio 1 DJ, remixer and composer Toddla t returns to Sheffield with his celebrated Steezey Wonderland.
The event will take place at ‘Church – Temple of Fun’ with tickets almost sold out.
The new venue – opened by Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes – is hosting the carnival that combines Caribbean fused décor with the sounds of dancehall, grime, garage, D&B, house and more.
Expect food, dancers, good vibes and of course a heavy weight lineup with Toddla t himself as MC and DJ.
‘Church – Temple of Fun’ is housed in the historic Rutland Works (now known as Osborn Works) on Rutland Road – one of the few listed buildings in the Kelham Island area of the city.
The venue incorporates many things that are already central to the life of Oliver Sykes – live music, vegan food, tattoos, retro gaming and South American religious iconography.
The original idea for ‘Church’ was born out of a Drop Dead clothing staff party that took place in the space.
When Oliver Sykes spotted a bar/arcade concept in Brazil he decided to develop the idea in Sheffield and ‘Church – Temple of Fun’ was born.
The 220 capacity venue is open day and night, seven days a week.
The vegan café is being operated by celebrated ‘Make No Bones’.
Steezey Wonderland tickets are £5: https://tickets.partyforthepeople.org/events/4087-toddla-t-s-steezey-wonderland-church-tramlines-saturday
