Orchard Square in the heart of Sheffield city centre has revealed a new look following extensive refurbishment work finishing on the site, 35 years after it first opened in 1987.

The open-air square in the city centre has had new paving installed throughout along with a central canopy and awnings, providing the popular location a dedicated, weatherproof event space.

Orchard Square manager Shay Murray said: "We are delighted to be unveiling the Square’s updated look following our futureproofing, refurbishment programme.

"The updated Square now offers our tenants and customers a more modern look and feel, alongside covered outdoor spaces, which has long been asked for and will be used for city centre events and gatherings - providing even more reasons for people to visit."
