Fanny's in SHEFFIELD NIGHTCLUBS Posted January 13 Turnups at Nether Edge closed in (I would say) 1980. The local residents got it closed down, due to the noise at chucking out time. They opened a new Turnups on Commercial Street in town the following year, in the former British Gas showrooms and offices - it was CR*P! I walked past Mr. Kites just a couple of months ago, for the first time in years. I was wondering if it would still be there. It's still a wine bar, of sorts, but it's a different name now. We used to go in there a lot during the 80s. I have a feeling that it was still Mr. Kites well into the 90s, but I can't be certain. Yes, Michel's was the bar under The Beauchief Hotel. Named after the owner, a Frenchman called Michel. He had a big Petinque (Boules) competition in the car park every Bastille Day, or on the closest Sunday. Teams of four. We won it one year, maybe "86 or '87. Think we won a medal on a ribbon and a bottle of wine. No cash! Another good reason for voting for Brexit.
