Sheffield City Hall is a concert and conference venue situated in the heart of Sheffield city centre. Built in 1932 and recently refurbished in 2005, it is host to over 500 events per year including a variety of rock and pop concerts, operas, ballets, comedy shows, nightclubs, banquets, conferences and business to business events. It is also home to the well-known and respected Sheffield International Concert Season (SICS).
The breathtaking surroundings of Sheffield City Hall create a special atmosphere for any occasion. Civil wedding ceremonies and receptions, award ceremonies, banquets, dinner dances, and exhibitions are just a selection of the events which have taken place in the venue.
The Art Deco building was lovingly refurbished in 2005 to preserve the original 1930s features while bringing the facilities into the 21st century.
The City Hall is comprised of three main areas: the Irwin Mitchell Oval Hall, the Memorial Hall and the Ballroom, all of which can be hired out for a variety of entertainment and business needs. Beneath the glittering and ornate ceiling, the glamorous Irwin Mitchell Oval Hall has a seating capacity exceeding 2,000 creating a surprisingly intimate experience whilst the Memorial Hall can accommodate a meeting of 40 delegates as effectively as hosting a conference for 400.
The art deco Ballroom, located below the two auditoria, is made up of three rooms: a main central area with a sprung dance floor and an illuminated glass panel in the centre and the smaller North and South Halls on either side. The Ballroom is an adaptable space which has been used over the past years for events such as weekly tea dances, nightclubs and for the filming of TV shows including the Antiques Roadshow and the X-Factor.
