What’s on at Yellow Arch – December 2016


Where has this year gone?! We have no idea, that’s for sure! The one thing we’re sure about, is that we have plenty of top drawer live music to keep you nice and warm this December.

As ever, we’ve got a wide variety of genres and vibes to throw at you. Plenty of Reggae and Dub, served with a generous helping of folk and Indie! See what tickles your fancy…

Thursday 1st December
Yellow Arch presents Beat The Bandit, Black Mamba Fever & The Unscene
£3.50 adv / £5 otd

We present another all Sheffield line up with our friends, Beat The Bandit headlining – A big, tight, melodic pop/rock explosion of sound. A band so dedicated to their music that they relocated to Sheffield together after meeting and busking in the streets of New Zealand. The infectious energy of their music combined with clever riffs and vocal melodies will have you tapping and humming away for days.

Sunday 4th December
Scriptless in Seattle

Fall in love again! Scriptless In Seattle is the improvised rom com, the show that’s never the same twice. Created entirely from audience suggestion, we tell a brand new love story with hilarity guaranteed.
