Hundreds sign petition to save Sheffield working men's club where the Full Monty was filmed

A campaign has been launched to try to save a working men's club in Sheffield where the Oscar-wining movie, the Full Monty, was filmed.

An application to demolish Shiregreen working men’s club has been submitted to Sheffield City Council by Rotherham-based Eyre Investments, who prepose to use the land to build accommodation.

The application has upset some members of the local community, who feel the building is part of the city's cultural heritage and a petition has launched, calling on Sheffield Council to prevent its destruction.

Hundreds have already signed the petition to save the notorious building from demolition.

The club in the Shiregreen area of the city was where the closing scenes of the 1997 hit film was filmed.

A demolition notice has also appeared on fencing outside the premises, which has been closed since late 2018.
