We visited to go to the theater, for anyone who loves the old theaters this is a great example. We sat in the circle and the view was very good and sound were very good. Before the show we had pre show dining, the meal was served in a very interesting room in the basement of the building. Wood paneling,... More

Easy to find, plenty of parking close by. Smooth and easy entrance into this venue, slick ticket checking made it a doddle. Fast service at the busy bar but not cheap £10 got two drinks. Auditorium is spacious with good acoustics and great view of stage from stalls. There are 2 balconies and a really impressive ceiling

I attended the City Hall to watch my daughters graduation. The staff onsite were polite and helpful, always a good start. The seating though left a bit to be desired, the condition was excellent but they were small and cramped - quite uncomfortable after sitting for nearly 2 hours. One that always gets to me is car parking! This is... More

Located in the centre of Sheffield, the City Hall was the perfect venue for this week's Sheffield Hallam University graduates. Whether your visit is for a graduation or a concert, take time to look up, the ceiling is magnificent. Fantastic acoustics and every seat has a perfect view of the stage. An amazing building - enjoy your visit.

This is a great venue for a concert, we have seen a few here and it us always good. Easy access, good seats, great acoustics. We were near stage on row C and the sound was great, not over loud and distorted. Queen were superb

Went to the Memorial Hall in Sheffield last week, part of the City hall, around the back of the main Hall – It is an impressive building with superb architecture and amenities. It plays host the several events, the most prolific of which is the weekly comedy club evening and whilst we were sat in the balcony, rather than on... More

I always love a trip to the City Hall. What a magnificent venue. Located in the very centre of Sheffield this is a stunning theatre. Its interior has been refurbished in the not too distant past so that the polished stone work, some original lighting features are complemented by crisply painted ceilings with heraldic devices and coats of arms in...

Great venue, very elegant, and located in the heart of Sheffield. Bar and toilet facilities are good, and staff is very polite and helpful. I have visited this venue several times for gigs, shows & events, and always enjoyed the experience.

Fantastic venue in the lovely city of Sheffield. Very elegant building with immaculate interiors. This was a music event featuring Christy Moore who sings "City of Chicago" among a hundred others. The man was wonderful, his voice was amazing at the age of 71. He covers a wide range of radical folk songs and life/love/loss in general. My first experience... More

Visited on 8th October 2016 to see Magic of Motown. It was good but spoilt a little by the backing system overpowering the singing (though this did seem to improve during the second half) and I suppose some could get annoyed by the people in front of you obscuring the view by standing up to dance? It annoyed one of... More
