I love attending functions here at Sheffield City Hal; it is a stunning building and a wonderful piece of architecture. SCH has a number of Halls and suites the Ballroom Suite and Oval hall are perfect for smaller intimate events. This venue attracts world class talent on a regular basis a far better venue than the arena with wonderful sound.

A great building, which is much-loved by the people of Sheffield, and looking better than ever. Had many happy times crashing gigs here in the 70's with the help of a coat-hanger ;) It has hosted all manner of events over the years, even an Anarchist conference once.

I absolutely love the Sheffield City Hall's neoclassical architecture and feel. Greeted by the magnificent portico you enter the building with a feeling of grandeur, the Oval hall is magnificent and is home to The Grand Willis III Organ built in 1932, the Ballroom Suit and halls are an incredibly sophisticated space and the Memorial hall is wonderful and perfectly...

We visited on Saturday to see a Mary Poppins production put on by a local dance school. The theatre itself was a good size and we weren't cold in there (some theatres can be very drafty). 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

"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...
