The staff were friendly if a little condescending not believing that we knew where we were going. It was a little strange that despite... More

I saw the Dave Clark Five Show in 1965 with The Hollies and The Kinks, to the most recent, Progressive Rock Group "Yes" and everything in between.Artur Rubinstein (Classical Pianist). "Deep Purple", John Wilson and His Orchestra.Seen "The Manfreds" many... More

Travelled to Sheffield to see the King of Pop show Sunday 19th June and was very impressed. The acoustics was fantastic and vision from our seat towards the rear of the stalls was very good. Seating was comfortable and sufficient room between rows unlike some theatres. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the price of drinks and snacks was... More

Lovely building which comprises a main concert hall with seating in stalls, circle and balcony and a ballroom which is used for dances and also some smaller concert events. Main hall a great setting for Sheffield classical orchestral season, opera performances and rock concerts. Best views from circle seats in my opinion. There are good bar facilities and a cloakroom...

The City Hall was originally built in the 1920's to help ease unemployment, and tastefully restored in the mid noughties. The venue has three areas, the Ballroom, complete with glitterball and glass floor. Tea dances are held here three afternoons each week, very well attended. The Memorial Hall and the Oval Hall. The large stage is a fantastic setting for... More
