Art – film – theatre

Our main uni building is in the heart of Sheffield’s culture district. In and around the area are the Lyceum and the Crucible theatres, the Showroom and Curzon cinemas, and the Millennium, Graves and Site galleries.


Sheffield has five cinemas to choose from, whether you’re looking for the latest Hollywood blockbusters, cult classics or independent movies. And in the summer months, you’ll find pop-up cinemas in venues like parks, pubs and warehouses.

Take a look at local favourites, the Showroom, the Light and Curzon cinema.


Sheffield has a variety of theatres large and small, which play host to everything from the big touring shows and pantomimes to new, contemporary productions. Theatre Deli is a community theatre which works to develop resources and opportunities for people to participate in and make art.


See major exhibitions from internationally renowned artists and independent gallery spaces where local artists develop their practice. Galleries are often free or donation based, and a great place to let your mind wander.

Street art

Art is everywhere in Sheffield. You can’t walk for more than a few minutes without stumbling across some really creative pieces of art decorating the walls and buildings of our city.

Keep an eye out the likes of Pete McKee, Faunagraphic, Frau Isa and Kid Acne.


Give it a go yourself with regular workshops and classes taking place across the city. From drawing to pottery, printmaking or even African drumming, there’s always something going on.

Take a look at events space Union St for inspiration.
