Venue is delighted with growth in business

Have your say

Sheffield City Hall has had a packed calendar of events this month – adding a week’s worth of extra events compared to the same time last year.

The venue has hosted top acts including Leona Lewis, Midge Ure, Bill Bailey, OMD and Reginald D Hunter, as well as a record number of student balls, banquets and weddings in the month.

Management say the trend is set to continue throughout the summer with shows from Joe Satriani, Elvis Co stello, Jimmy Carr and Thea Gilmore in June.

There will also be conferences for KPMG, DWP, ENCALS and charity dinners next month – followed by the Arts Marketing Association Conference visiting in July.

Tickets for The Mavericks, Texas and Caro Emerald have all gone on sale this month with more events to be announced in the coming weeks.

Richard Hunter, general manager of City Hall, which is run by Sheffield International Venues, said: “Despite the continuing economic challenges it seems people are still determined to enjoy life.

“This is reflected by the growing confidence of promoters and event organisers.

“We are delighted to be part of the resurgent entertainment and growing business sector.”
