O2 Academy Sheffield

The latest live music destination to open in the city of Sheffield, O2 Academy Sheffield, is the youngest in a string of venues owned and operated by Academy Music Group. Hosting a range of live music shows, it is the reincarnated form of the defunct Roxy nightclub, which had seen several huge stars in its heyday. The main auditorium seats 2350 guests and the excellent sound system is guaranteed to get the crowd on its feet. Since its opening, the venue has been host to sell-out shows by the best musicians and bands around. Punk, pop, rock and heavy metal are its mainstay. The Academy also offers a smaller private room with a capacity of 600 for events besides live shows.

Crucible Theatre

Though it may still be best known as the host of the annual World Snooker Championship, the Crucible is now also recognized as an important national theater. Touring companies such as the National Theatre Company play either here or at the neighboring Lyceum Theatre. The Crucible complex is Sheffield's answer to London's Barbican Center and also houses the Crucible Studio, where more experimental work is shown.

Studio Theatre

Established in 1971, the Studio Theatre (now referred to as Tanya Moiseiwitsch Playhouse) forms a part of the Sheffield Theater Complex. This theatre is renamed after the theatre designer who played an important role in the creation of the theatre complex. After being renovated in 1994, it became one of the most versatile spaces in Sheffield. With a seating capacity of four hundred, it is known to promote off-beat and smaller productions which provide a platform to upcoming local artists. This theater also doubles up as a well-equipped studio. Check out their website to find out more.

The Lyceum

This superbly restored large Victorian theater, originally opened in 1897, seats audiences over three levels and retains original features (including boxes, wall paintings, sculptures and a decorated safety curtain) is the flagship of Sheffield's three civic theaters. Touring companies including the Royal National Theatre, the Opera North and the Northern Ballet visit regularly and musicals and popular favorites also play here. Generous discounts are offered on advance bookings to groups of 10 or more and a few standby tickets (limited to 2 per customer) are available each day for that night's show. A large bar area is open for drinks before performances and in the intervals. The program gives details of signed and audio-described performances for people with hearing or visual impairment.

Sheffield City Hall

Studded on to the bustling Barker's Pool, this large-capacity stage hall is a popular venue for visiting comedians, singers, bands, plays, and musicals. Complete with columns and a portico, the hall is steeped in history, and is yet a symbol of contemporary art and entertainment. A perfect epitome of Neoclassical architecture, the Sheffield City Hall is home to one of Sheffield's largest organs and a ballroom, among other major halls. Although it faces stiff competition from other more modern Sheffield venues, the hall is conveniently based in the city center and still attracts some very big names. Classical music groups and visiting orchestras also perform regularly here. The seating is on two floors, facing a large stage. The surrounding decor is relatively old-fashioned, with some features dating back to the 1920s, lending the hall quite an atmospheric feel. A bar remains open during some performances.

Set in beautiful grounds, this small but attractive theater hosts plays, concerts, courses and lectures throughout the year. The theater has a warm and friendly atmosphere and is well maintained inside with comfortable seating and a decently-sized stage. The local Merlin Theatre Group puts on two major productions a year and the theater is also used by other companies: it is likely that something will be playing here almost every week. In the past, some of the theater's most popular events have been high quality Shakespeare plays and musical recitals. Along with the nearby Tintagel House, the theater holds Art and Educational workshops and lectures.
