About

Welcome to the online home of The Sugarmill, Stoke-on-Trent’s nationally acclaimed live music venue and nightclub which has been open since 1994. Here you’ll find everything you need to know about the latest bands we’ve got booked and up-to-date information about our weekly club nights.
The Sugarmill is situated at the bottom of Brunswick Street in the heart of the Cultural Quarter of Hanley, the city centre of Stoke-on-Trent – we’re right next to the Stage Door pub and opposite Fiction nightclub.
We’ve hosted literally hundreds and hundreds of bands over the years, many of whom have gone on to massive success, examples include; Coldplay, Muse, Elbow, Daft Punk, Stereophonics, A Day to Remember, The 1975, The National, Maximo Park, Kasabian, Lamb of God, Biffy Clyro, Catfish and The Bottlemen, Trivium, Bring Me The Horizon, Foals, You Me at Six, Glassjaw, Editors and The Libertines to name just a few.
We actively promote the local band scene and also try and bring some of the bigger names back to the city to play at The Victoria Hall and Keele University.
We’re open every Friday for our ELECTRIC FRIDAY club night, which is the longest running alternative club night in Staffordshire. We host an all-nighter until 6am the last Friday of every month.
We also host THE MOVE on occasional Saturdays and every Bank Holiday Sunday, a club night which brings you the biggest names in international house music.
Our club nights are open to over 18s only, all our shows (unless stated otherwise) are open to over 14s.
