Miranda is a first for arena

Have your say

MIRANDA Hart is to become the first female comedian to perform at Sheffield Arena.

The star of hit BBC series Miranda is taking to the stage - but not until April 6, 2014.

Arena marketing manager Simon Bailey said: “In the building’s 22 years of hosting thousands of events, this is the first female comedian to play at the arena.

“Our first ever comedy show here was Eddie Izzard in 2003, and since that sell-out show comedy has become the new rock’n’roll, regularly selling out multiple nights in the 12,000 seat arena.”
