We only saw the outside with its impressive neo-classical façade and the portico with its amazing painted ceiling, but we are determined that next time we are in Sheffield we will make a longer visit to see the auditorium itself.

We saw the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and Black Dyke Band here in December 2016. They were great. And the building is a fitting venue. It has a magnificent auditorium and the public corridors and spaces seem much less claustrophobic than many similar halls.

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.
