Crashers to Ashes: Gatecrasher burns down.

Recommended Posts

See for latest news of the fire: http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=227573

 

After the smoke hs cleared, we all hope that Gatecrasher will pick itself up and look at least for a temporary home while its multi million pound palace is rebuilt.

 

Does anyone have possible suggestions? The cllub's management might look at refurbishing a currently disused venue nearby such as the old Niche (But thats a bit small), or a larger one such as the old Roxy (Empty for donkey's years).

 

Then there is the disused Hallam Uni union.

 

Any kind landlords who might warm to a request to 'gimme shelter' to one of the North's most illustrious entertainment venues???

 

Best of luck to GC in getting over this catastrophe.:(

i looked ike the packaging factory (which would explain the plastic smell), Have just got off my bus and they are in process of diverting the bus route.

 

It went up really quickly, within about 5 mins of standing at Plug it went from white smoke to thick dark brown.

 

Hope everyone got out ok.

Same here in S10, can taste it and smell it. That's a lot of smoke.

We just drove back from town and the fire brigade was there en masse.

It looked like it's not yet under control. Roads all seemed to be open and, I have to say, everyone was driving calmly and sensibly I guess just wanting to get home. Scary stuff; the smoke was very smelly and loads of it.

Hope all okay.
