I visit the City Hall often, for the classical concert series in the Oval (main) Hall, and for much smaller folk concerts in the Memorial Hall. The decor in both is magnificient. The Oval Hall acoustics leave a little to be desired, and I would recommend sitting near the front in the stalls or circle if possible. The Memorial Hall... More

Have visited the City Hall many times over the years. It has quite an old fashioned look about it because it's an old building an they have tried to keep an authentic feel to it. They host a huge variety of entertainment there. Main problems are the queues for the toilets, there just aren't enough of them and they are... More

Loved the show, only crib is there should be more seating in the bars, there were a lot of elderly people there who were obviously in need of seating. It was the same in all the bars, too little seating.

I'm sorry I haven't a clue Tour 2014. Great show by the usual protagonists. Comedy gold. Venue is accessible, decent spaced apart seating and good view, feeling close to the action. Prices are not stupid either......

Sheffield City Hall is quite an impressive structure, but the acoustics of the 'oval hall' are less impressive, particularly where orchestral concerts are concerned. It's the only concert hall I've visited where I think I heard two reflected and one original version of the music from my seat. The problem stems from the oval shape of the hall and the... More

Went with friends to Runrig concert, our experience was a good one. Well organised venue, with good facilities in a great area of Sheffield. The central location means it's surrounded by restaurants, and the cheesegrator car park is only five minutes walk away. Couldn't be easier .

Great Venue, we were right at the back and still had a good view, there are no bad seats in this place.

Many other venues could earn a thing or two about customer service from City Hall. Friendly, helpful staff doing their jobs well in ensuring you get the utmost out of the show. Have been here several times and can't fault them. Lovely old building in central position gives a sense of occasion to any event. Keep up the good work... More

We have visited the City Hall on a few previous occasions and have always found it to be comfortable with reasonable acoustics and a lovely old ceiling. This visit was to see that well known Scottish Band - Runrig (ok they're not that well known - but have a reasonably large following of loyal fans and are currently celebrating their... More

Location and venue are excellent so are the seating and acoustics. Very Old school compact seating and interiors. Was here for Anton DU Berke! The pricing was a bit too high for the service offered. Overall great night!
