On the 9th March I attended a live music event at the Bay Horse pub located on Pitsmoor Road Sheffield. The evening was held in aid of ‘Compass Children’s Charity’ and hosted various punk rock bands that were performing under the banner of ‘Punk 4 the Homeless’.

The bands that took part were Before They are Hanged, Dronny Bottom Buskers, The Sentence and Paul Carbuncle. It was a great night, that the large crowd really enjoyed, with thanks to the excellent hosts, Carolyn and Mike.

Excellent vegan food was also supplied by the People’s Kitchen Pitsmoor.

As well as gig nights, the Bay Horse hosts a weekly quiz on a Wednesday and a range of monthly events, including a book club on the last Thursday, a craft club on the second Monday, the Pitsmoor Ladies Club on the second Thursday of the month, and the Singles Night on irregular Friday’s (that’s seven inch singles, not a night for the unattached – although unattached people are definitely welcome).

With a range of beers such as Moonshine, Blue Moon as well as Wards and a range of lagers, bottles and a fine selection of gins, a warm welcome is assured.

The Compass Children’s Charity helps to protect vulnerable children worldwide. More information can be found at:
