Forthcoming Offbeat-related events and Guest DJ slots

None confirmed at present - but watch this space!

The regular venue for Offbeat is The Raynor Lounge, Sheffield University SU - click here for details and directions. Unless otherwise stated, Offbeat runs from 9pm to 1am, with the bar open throughout. Unlike most clubs we do open at 9pm sharp, so it's worth turning up on time.

Ticket details
Admission to Offbeat is 4 pounds. You can pay on the door on the night of the event, or buy tickets in advance. If you wish to buy advance tickets they are available from the SU ticket office up until 5pm on the night of the event.
