Sheffield: Music City


We’re lucky to be located in one of the UK's most musical cities. With dozens of major venues ranging across all music genres, from City Hall and The Crucible to The Leadmill and the Foundry, there’s a great live music scene to explore. Sheffield’s also full of music-making organisations, from brass bands to symphony orchestras, and it’s home to a wealth of charities bringing music into community and educational settings.

Here’s a taster of the musical variety the city of Sheffield has to offer. You could also download two recent reports that document the city’s vibrant Music Sector and the thriving Classical Music Sector
