Best of the fests

There’s always something happening in Sheffield. Here are just a few of the events that light up the city every year.

Sheffield Food Festival

The city centre comes alive with street food, pop-up restaurants and more.


This documentary film festival is one of the biggest in the industry, attracting top filmmakers from around the world and over 25,000 festival goers.


Tramlines is Sheffield’s biggest party, with tens of thousands of music fans taking the 15-minute tram from the city centre to watch over 70 acts across four stages at Hillsborough Park.

You can get cheap early bird tickets, but if you are on a tight budget you can see hundreds of free gigs taking place around the city centre across the weekend.

Sheffield Pride

One of Yorkshire’s biggest LGBT+ events - not to be missed.


Expect one-off gigs, unique film screenings and installations across the city.

Celluloid Screams

An annual celebration of horror films old and new, with premieres, sneak previews and special guests.

Off the Shelf

Meet your favourite authors and mingle with book lovers.
