Cultural Sheffield

Galleries and museums

The Millennium Gallery has close links with the Tate and the V&A in London and the Graves Gallery has a permanent collection of modern art, including works by Picasso, Lautrec and Hockney amongst others.

The Site Gallery is a beacon of everything digital and one of the country’s leading lights in the contemporary arts. The S1 Artspace is a young, artist led organisation and has the most artists’ studios outside of London. They have an annual artist in residence and a varied programme of exhibitions and screenings.

Cinemas and theatres

Crucible TheatreThree distinctive venues, The Crucible, Studio and Lyceum overlook Tudor Square in the city centre and present a lively mixture of the classics and contemporary drama. The Crucible is a world famous venue; well known for hosting the annual World Snooker Championships every year.

The City Hall is a major Sheffield landmark and another famous venue for holding concerts, comedy nights and theatrical productions. The 2,000 seat main hall is complemented by the more intimate 500-seat Memorial Hall and a ballroom which holds a variety of themed club nights.

As you would expect in a major UK city, Sheffield has a number of cinemas to choose from. The Showroom is the largest independent cinema outside London and its restaurant bar is a popular meeting place. Mainstream movies are catered for by the Odeon in the city centre, and two multiscreen cinema complexes; one at Meadowhall and the other close by at Valley Centertainment.
