Discover Sheffield’s hidden gems

You’ll soon find the high street chains, the big venues like the Leadmill and the
O2 Academy, and your nearest supermarket. But that’s only half the story.

We asked our students for their tips on the places that aren’t on the tourist map.

Where to find… the best local produce

Moor Market

With high quality local fruit, veg, meat, cheese and more at incredibly cheap prices, this is where to do your shopping.

Peddler Night Market

On the first Friday and Saturday of the month, discover a fresh lineup of Britain's best street food traders, alongside top-notch craft beers, freshly made cocktails, live music and art.

Where to find… the latest must-see band

Picture House Social

Downstairs at an old Victorian cinema you’ll find live music, DJs, ping pong tables and retro arcade machines.

Audacious Art Experiment

One of Sheffield's many spaces for DIY gigs and parties.

Where to find… new works of art

Bank Street Arts

An arts centre focusing on mashing up art, writing, film, craft and performance.

Site Gallery

Moving image, new media and performance art in a small but perfectly formed gallery space.

Where to find… the best films from around the world

The Showroom

This award-winning independent cinema is handily situated opposite the Students’ Union.

Curzon Cinema

You pay a little more for a seat, but what a seat.

Where to find… stars treading the boards

Crucible Theatre

See fresh talent, ground-breaking new plays and the world snooker championship. And if you're under 27, you can get £5 tickets.

Lyceum Theatre

This is where to catch the big touring shows (and the panto).
