Niche nightclub, on Walker Street, has been permitted to reopen with new security measures and an amended licence, after a hearing from Sheffield Council at the Town Hall on Thursday 8 February.

This follows a violent altercation at the club near Kelham Island on the 23rd December, in  which four people were stabbed and one suffered broken bones, with the fight also spilling out onto the street.

The police described it as a gang-related attack and emphasised that none of the nightclub staff called the police, instead leaving it to the paramedics on the scene to report the incident.

The nightclub has been ordered to increase security measures, meaning that they will increase the number of door staff from four to six and reduce the sale of glass inside the club.

The ruling was greeted with loud cheers from supporters of Niche from the public gallery, and the club’s owners celebrated with supporters outside the Town Hall afterwards.
