Welcome Stroll through the heart of Sheffield and you’ll discover treasures unlike any you’ll find in other cities. In one corner of the city centre you’ll find charming independent shops and boutiques with bags of style. In another, a trail of galleries will fill you with inspiration, while heirs to Sheffield’s proud tradition of making are busy in the background. A series of characterful coffee shops will see you through the daytime and, as evening sets in, the cosy pubs of the country’s beer capital lie in wait. Running between them all are streets coloured by the work of the best street artists around. Spirits are high in the city centre all year round, as students revel and relax, festival-goers saunter between stages, and locals make the most of all their hometown has to offer. This book is the second edition of Experience Sheffield, a showcase of all that’s unique and independent in Sheffield city centre, created by Sheffield BID. It shares stories from the city’s makers and doers – like a festival director who finds inspiration in the city’s creative spirit, the owners of a shop at the heart of Sheffield’s beer-loving community, and a young artist who recently set up his own gallery. Experience Sheffield. Cultural Sheffield, green Sheffield, lively Sheffield, creative Sheffield. A friendly city of makers and music, of beer, of hard workers, and of sanctuary.

CITY OF MAKERS Sheffield is known far and wide as a city of steel. Cutlery and tool making is in its blood, and it’s down to the city’s heritage of metalwork that “Made in Sheffield” is an official, globally recognised brand. A number of manufacturers working with steel are still going strong across the city – many of them have specialised and adapted, and continue to be pioneers in their field into the 21st century. Today, though, the city turns out metal plus a whole lot more. Sheffield city centre is now a welcoming and inspiring home for a diverse and innovative array of makers, who produce everything from music, film and theatre to jewellery, video games, advanced technology and digital art. Much of this creativity and innovation happens in the many studios and workshops that cluster around the Cultural Industries Quarter. With a lineage that can be traced back to the little mesters, the buffer lasses and the discovery of stainless steel, 21st century Sheffield remains a proud city of makers.

STEFAN & TARA TOBLER – AND OTHER STORIES What excites you most about working in book publishing? The feeling you get – and it’s a rare feeling – when you open the first few pages of a manuscript and are hit in the face with a real voice. A voice so authentic and so powerful it feels created ex nihilo, like it’s always been there, like it will endure forever, unchangeably itself. That’s when your jaw drops and your eyes water and you remember why publishing is worth it – ‘it’ being all those spreadsheets. Why do you think print books enjoy enduring popularity, despite the continued rise of digital publishing? We all spend so much time looking at screens nowadays that people appreciate a chance to lose themselves in a tactile place, unplugged. No interruptions from news feeds and ads. Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it? Where’s your favourite place in Sheffield? We have so many! The ancient Ecclesall Woods and the Discovery Centre, Abbeydale Road including Mr Pickles for an eye-opening wealth of local food, the Showroom Cinema and definitely the city’s art galleries and museums.

The Art House

The Art House

Bloc Studios

Just off Division Street in the city centre, The Art House is driven by the belief that natural creativity can be unlocked in anyone, given time, tuition and the right environment. It offers workshops and taster sessions for all ages on everything from pottery to perfumery to painting, and is a great place to have a cup of tea while looking at art.

Bloc is an old knife workshop turned creative hub located in Sheffield’s Cultural Industries Quarter. Four art college graduates set up the studios in 1996, when there was a shortage of affordable studio facilities in the city. Bloc Studios is home to 65 artists, while the connected Bloc Projects gallery regularly hosts contemporary art exhibitions.

Sheffield Makers Shop Sheffield Makers began as a Christmas pop-up shop in 2015. After a successful season, it took over a unit in the beautiful Winter Garden (p96) at the heart of the city. The shop is filled with everything from photography to pottery, screen printed textiles to woodcrafts – made by an ever growing list of Sheffield’s independent creators and designers.

Yorkshire Artspace Yorkshire Artspace is one of the country’s largest studio networks. A team of art graduates established the artspace in 1977 and since then it’s grown to fill three sites in Sheffield with over 170 artists and makers. Persistence Works is a purposebuilt, award-winning complex in the city centre, while Exchange Place Studios is a beautifully converted art deco building at nearby Castlegate, and Manor Oaks is an eco-designed space just outside the city centre. Artists at all three sites open their doors to the public each November for an Open Studios weekend.

Neil Woodall

Jo Peel

Printmaker Neil Woodall has been creating etchings and woodcuts for almost three decades. He’s an expert in the increasingly rare printing technique known as aquatint, which results in beautiful prints that resemble watercolour paintings. Look out for Neil’s etched stainless steel pieces of public art from the mid-90s on Grinders Hill, between Site Gallery and The Workstation.

Jo Peel is a painter both of and on urban landscapes. She’s inspired by cities – their people, their architecture, their developments – and her work can often be found covering walls in Sheffield and beyond. You’ll find one of her distinctive murals, created during Feature Walls, in the Wellington Street car park, and some of her prints are on sales at APG Works (see p10).

In her lovely, light-filled Persistence Works studio, Penny Withers works away on a range of charming ceramics in all shapes and sizes – from fluid, decorative vases to practical pottery inspired by archeological finds at Sheffield’s Manor Lodge. Her weekly classes are often fully booked, but look out for an opening if you’re keen to take to the pottery wheel yourself.

APG Works Specialist cutlery craftspeople, known as little mesters and buffer girls, once filled small workshops much like the one now occupied by APG Works. Today, the trade that’s plied in this building is no longer metal, though it’s just as specialised. Established by Rupert Wood, APG Works is a screen printing and framing studio. As well as offering printing and framing services, APG also showcases artists and sells work by some of the artists it works with – who, in the past, have included Kid Acne, Phlegm, Boards of Canada, The Designers Republic, Emily Forgot and Tado. Visit the gallery to browse its wares – and to take a peek at a well-preserved building filled with historical charm.

Forced Entertainment

Eclipse

Since 1984, the six artists that make up Forced Entertainment have, from their base in Sheffield, created ground-breaking provocative theatre pieces that have been toured and presented across the UK, Europe, and the rest of the world. The group have sustained a unique collaborative practice for more than thirty years, producing work that explores and often explodes the conventions of genre, narrative and theatre itself, drawing influence not just from drama but from dance, performance art, music culture and popular forms such as cabaret and stand-up.

Artistic director Dawn Walton founded theatre company Eclipse in 2010, with the aim of creating a more diverse theatrical landscape in the UK. Since then it’s become, according to The Guardian, “one of the UK’s foremost black-led theatre companies”. Eclipse brings overlooked plays to the stage – like A Raisin in the Sun, which it premiered at the Crucible in 2016 and toured around the country – and also creates new black British stories to enrich the canon.

CITY OF MUSIC Whether it’s smooth jazz in a cosy wine bar, local rockers in a lively pub or a big name gracing the City Hall stage, you’ll easily find great live music any night of the week in Sheffield city centre. Sheffield has long been associated with electronic music, since the likes of The Human League found international fame for their synthpop singles and hairdos in the 1980s. Today, the city has a rich reputation for varied musical exports – from Britpoppers Pulp, with their hip-twirling frontman Jarvis Cocker, to dance poppers Moloko to quiff-haired crooner Richard Hawley to current arenafillers like the Arctic Monkeys and Bring Me the Horizon. And they’re just the ones who’ve hit the mainstream. According to a 2015 report, there are 465 bands in the city, who have access to 65 recording studios and 70 dedicated music venues. Go out and give them a listen.

JO WINGATE – SENSORIA What do you like best about being based in Sheffield? I like the independent spirit of the place. I like that people are willing to pursue their passions. I love our seven hills and the fact that you can sit or walk in so many spots and get a sense of perspective. I’m from Sheffield and cut my teeth going to gigs here, so I’ve always known a super-interesting music scene and Sensoria was originally set up to celebrate and help profile the creative talent in our city. Why do you think Sheffield is such a hotbed for festivals? There is no shortage of talent to celebrate and festivals are an excellent way to do so, it’s a way of profiling the city without being a ‘hard sell’ which Sheffielders have never been great at. With festivals it’s all about the content so it’s easy to ‘show’ rather than ‘tell’. What’s been your highlight from Sensoria over the years? This is almost impossible to answer but each year there are little moments that make it all worthwhile. Seeing a little girl on stage after the Hannah Peel gig with Daisy, the drummer, letting her try out drumming and handing over some drumsticks for her to keep. Seeing people connect for the first time and become lifelong friends. Seeing commissioned musicians get recognition for their work and seeing our volunteers move onto new ventures. We’ve thrown open the doors to many a venue for the first time after years of closure including Abbeydale Picture House and of course, Castle House, both venues now look forward to ongoing use. But sometimes it’s the unexpected stuff that keeps you trucking on.

Sheffield Makes Music Sheffield Makes Music is a 24 hour showcase of Sheffield’s rich musical tradition. Supported by the University Of Sheffield and Sheffield BID, the event has become one of the highlights of the city’s cultural calendar, and in 2018 it will surprise you somewhere, sometime around September. Expect musicians of all denominations performing at various locations around the city from dawn till dusk. Some performances will be in established music venues, others will form magical moments of amazing sounds in unexpected places. Our city breeds everything from Opera to Omnichord solo’s, Hip Hop to Harmonicas, Folk to Fanfares, Brass to Beethoven. We have music on trams, on trains, in shops, bars and coffee shops, outdoors, indoors, soloists, choirs, drummers, Indie bands, acoustic bands, famous bands, just starting out bands, electronic, unplugged, quiet, loud, music to dance to, music to sit still to, electronica, avant garde, brass, strings….. Someone somewhere once said there’s more people per head of population making music in Sheffield than anywhere else in the country. We don’t know who it was, or even if they said it but we’d be prepared to bet it’s the truth.

The Leadmill The Leadmill is an icon of independent music in Sheffield, having been at the centre of the city’s music scene for three decades. The 80s brought everything from post punk to the Culture Club to the venue. In the 90s it was Britpoppers Oasis, The Verve, Elastica and Suede, and the grungier likes of Babes in Toyland and Mudhoney. Then in the 00s, it was time for The Strokes, The White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and – of course – Arctic Monkeys to take to the Leadmill stage. It still hosts a gig, live comedy or club event most nights of the week.

It plays host to varied club nights, filling four rooms with everything from pop to indie to hardcore to soul, and is also home to the infamous “blue pint”.

Crystal One of many examples of a former cutlery works finding a new lease of life in Sheffield, Crystal is a cool space, all exposed brickwork and parquet floors. The intimate nightclub is popular with students on weeknights, and on Saturdays it gets people moving to house, R&B and soul music.

The brutalist building that now houses the Academy has a long legacy in Sheffield’s music scene, having entertained previous generations as the Top Rank Suite and Roxy Disco. Gigs in its big auditorium range from rock to reggae to rap, while club nights regularly keep crowds dancing into the early hours.

CITY OF BEER Sheffield’s city centre is a great destination for real ale enthusiasts. Benefiting from the city’s reputation for beer, which has grown to almost the same heights as its reputation for steel, the beer scene here has developed quickly. In 2016 the University of Sheffield published the Beer Report, making the case that Sheffield is one of the world’s best beer cities. The evidence? Sheffield City Region is home to 57 brewers, with 23 of those based within Sheffield itself. This equates to one brewery for every 23,991 people in the city – a ratio four and a half times more impressive than London’s. And around 400 unique beers are available on any typical day in the city’s many characterful pubs – more than in other beer cities like Nottingham, Norwich, York, Derby and Leeds. Sheffield’s breweries follow a longstanding tradition of smallscale, independent artisans, which can be traced back to the ‘little mesters’ of the city’s industrial past. Between them, they produce around 1000 different beers each year. Almost three quarters of this beer is sold within the City Region, meaning you can enjoy beers here that would be hard to find anywhere else in the world. It’s time the beer world discovered its best kept secret.

DEBORAH & SEAN – BEER CENTRAL What’s the best thing about running your business in Sheffield? We love that we’ve made friends with hundreds of customers, lots of pub staff and many of Sheffield’s breweries. It’s great to be part of the beer community in such a beer-mad city. We’re lucky to see so many people every day and we love to chat with as many as possible. Running a successful business is hard work and we’re so glad that people seem to like what we do, enjoy shopping in our shop and love the beers we get on the shelves. How do you choose which beers to stock? We’re sent list after list of beers every week from the many breweries and suppliers we deal with and we enjoy picking through them to work out which are the best ones to stock. We also get lots of requests from customers, sometimes they’ve had a beer before, or they’ve seen a new beer on social media and hope we can get it for them. What’s in the future for Beer Central? We’ll continue to do what we do to the best of our ability and keep looking at ways of improving our service and offering as much choice as we can. We’re also looking forward to being involved in more of The Moor Market evening events because the last one, the Cheese Festival, went unbelievably well. It’s a really positive step forward for the market and a chance to attract new customers. We have plans to expand our mail order business and of course, we have plans to enjoy life, go on a few beery trips and ‘research’ as many beers as we can on behalf of our discerning customers!

True North Brew Co Since the early 90s, the team behind True North Brew Co have been responsible for running some of Sheffield’s favourite watering holes. It began with The Forum, the Devonshire Street bar that in summer blissfully spills out onto Devonshire Green. True North now operates its own brewery just next door to The Forum, where it brews its regular range, plus some more experimental beers, and also distills the distinctive True North Sheffield Dry Gin.

CITY OF CHARITY It’s often remarked that Sheffield’s a friendly city, and in 2007 it became the UK’s first City of Sanctuary. This status is given to places that proudly welcome people in need of safety, and grew out of local community groups’ and the council’s commitment to support refugees and asylum seekers. Sheffield’s culture of friendliness and hospitality extends to anyone and everyone in the city centre, where charities and social enterprises offer a hand with everything from housing to healthy eating.

GAIL GIBBONS – SHEFFIELD FUTURES Star House is the welcoming hub of young people’s charity Sheffield Futures, based in the vibrant heart of the city and managed by CEO Gail Gibbons. This one-stop-shop offers confidential support with education, employment, training or personal issues, though the charity’s services spread far and wide, into communities, schools and youth clubs across the city. What’s the best thing about being based in Sheffield? Sheffield is so different to other cities, it’s unique in both people and place, and it feels like the city is having resurgence. The people of Sheffield are so proud to be from here and I find that loyalty very inspiring. I believe that our city is built on a community of doers and grassroots culture. Sheffield’s innovative history, in industry, music and more has paved the way for the next generation with DIY ethics. It’s the people of Sheffield’s creativity, friendliness and passion for the city that make it a great place to run an organisation. What advice would you give to a young person who is unsure about getting in touch with Sheffield Futures? I would say “go for it, what do you have to lose?” Our team are helpful and friendly – we’re there for as long as it takes to support young people to fulfil their potential.

Cathedral Archer Project

ASSIST

The Archer Project dates back to the 1980s, a decade of industrial decline and rising levels of unemployment and poverty in Sheffield. At that time, Sheffield Cathedral became a regular place of shelter for many in the city, welcoming homeless people and offering them a basic breakfast. The charity has grown from there and is now based in a purpose-built area within the Cathedral, where it provides support helping people move from sleeping bag to employment and an enjoyable, fulfilling life.

Through providing temporary accommodation, food and support, ASSIST aims to alleviate the hardships of destitute and vulnerable asylum seekers in Sheffield. The charity is also dedicated to raising awareness of the plight of asylum seekers and integrating those who use their services into the wider community, by organising art workshops, talks, concerts, carol services and more.

Help Us Help People can find themselves on the street through a number of circumstances and bad luck. It’s only natural that you’d want to help when you see someone begging but the best way of making a lasting difference that isn’t always clear, and not everyone’s needs are the same. Help Us Help is a collaboration between all the varied services and charities who provide practical support, compassionate care and advice to the homeless in Sheffield city centre – like the Cathedral Archer Project, the King Street soup kitchen, and the Sunday Centre, which offers refuge, hot meals, activities and conversation on Sunday afternoons at Victoria Hall. Visit the Help Us Help campaign’s website to learn how you can donate to or volunteer for these agencies, see how they’ve helped people build fulfilling lives away from the street, and find out who to call if you’re concerned about someone.

We spoke to an asylum seeker supported by ASSIST to find out how the charity had helped him.

How has ASSIST helped you since you came to Sheffield? It’s helped me a lot. They’ve provided me with accommodation for a year and every week I get a bus pass. All this has definitely changed my life, without ASSIST I would be on the streets.

Why do you think the work that ASSIST does to help asylum seekers is so important? It helps people avoid resorting to criminal activities to survive. In many cases the Home Office has treated people unjustly so they are angry and prepared to turn to crime. It’s humanitarian to help.

Whether it’s questions of careers, sexual health or after-school activities, the charity can point people towards the answers.

Voluntary Action Sheffield

A colourful entranceway on Eyre Street leads to Foodhall, where everyone is welcome in both the kitchen and cafe. The grassroots social enterprise has seen volunteers in the kitchen ranging from Michelin star chefs to local people who just want to do some good with their love of cooking. In the cafe, people enjoy vegetarian meals made from food that may otherwise go to waste, in a friendly setting that promotes equality, inclusion and sharing. Foodhall’s pay-as-you-feel, communal model is inspired by the Commonwealth Cafe, a low-cost cafe and meeting place set up by the socialist poet and early LGBT activist Edward Carpenter in Shalesmoor in the late 19th century.

Celebrating its 92nd year in 2018, Voluntary Action Sheffield (VAS) is the city’s go-to organisation for voluntary and community groups, with the main aim of improving the quality of life for all of Sheffield’s communities. VAS offers a wide range of information, advice and support for charitable and voluntary organisations across the city, including HR advice, IT services, payroll and more. It runs the Circle – flexible conferencing, meeting and office space open to all, but particularly to provide a hub for the sector in the city centre.

It supports community services such as lunch clubs for older people in the city, with everything from financial advice to volunteer training. On top of that, the charity offers dedicated support to refugees and asylum seekers to find new roots through volunteering in their new city.

CITY OF LEARNING Innovative thinking. Visionary collaboration. Open debate. Endless routes to discovery and invention are open at Sheffield’s centres of learning. The city is first choice for students from both near and far. Over 60,000 students fill the labs, libraries and lecture halls at Sheffield’s two universities, with a significant number of these students coming from overseas. A good mix of local and international students doesn’t only make a difference academically, but it also has a huge positive cultural and economic impact on Sheffield. Between them, the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University attract students and staff from almost 150 countries, creating truly global communities here in the city. Add to the universities a spectacular public library and colleges specialising in everything from computing to cutlery making, and the possibilities for learning are endless in Sheffield. As well as being an inspiring place to study, the city centre is also a vibrant place to live. It’s no wonder, then, that such a high number of students stick around after graduation.

Sheffield Hallam University Sheffield Hallam University has grown from humble beginnings in fledgling colleges in 1843 to its position today as one of the UK’s largest and most progressive universities. The University campus is constantly evolving and innovating with its flagship Charles Street building, home of Sheffield Institute of Education, being nominated for the RIBA Yorkshire 2018 Awards for architectural excellence. Its state-of-the-art facilities attract large numbers of students from overseas and also make a big impact locally, recruiting a large proportion of home students from the city region and contributing £424m a year to its economy. Sheffield Hallam is one of the UK’s largest providers of health and social care courses, teacher training, and sport and physical activity courses. It is also home to the UK’s largest modern business school and one of the UK’s oldest established art and design institutions. Notable alumni include actor Sean Bean, Olympian Kelly Holmes, cutlery designer David Mellor, Nick Park of Wallace and Gromit fame, and graffiti artist Kid Acne.

Sheffield Institute of Arts Sheffield Institute of Arts dates back to 1843. It’s since become part of Sheffield Hallam University and, in 2016, opened an exciting new chapter in its long history, as it relocated to the beautifully refurbished former head post office. The new home for the arts welcomes students in subjects including fine art, fashion, jewellery and metalwork, and design. The general public can also take a peek at the work of some of its students – as well as the building’s original mosaic floor and spectacular spiral staircase – during exhibitions and events.

The University of Sheffield Three 19th century institutions – Sheffield Medical School, Firth College and Sheffield Technical School – came together to form the red brick University of Sheffield. A member of the Russell Group of leading UK research universities and a world top 100 university, the University of Sheffield is guided by its aspirations to transform lives for the better around the world and its strong sense of civic duty. Its civic heritage can be traced back to its origins, when Sheffield’s factory workers donated pennies to the proposed university, and is still strong today, stoking fruitful and innovative collaborations between academics and organisations in the city. The likes of Britain’s first astronaut Helen Sharman and Wolf Hall author Hilary Mantel have studied within the University of Sheffield’s laboratories and lecture halls. While the main campus is in Western Bank, the campus extends into the city centre with buildings like St George’s church turned lecture theatre, the Mappin Building, Jessop West and The Diamond. The university is proudly international; in 2013 it launched #weareinternational, a campaign that has since spread to 100 other organisations, aiming to show students and academics from around the world that they are welcome and valued.

Students with technical ambitions can join University Technical College from Year 10 or 12. There, they’ll study the usual GCSE or A Level curriculum, plus a specialist area of technical learning: engineering & advanced manufacturing, creative digital media, computing, health sciences or sport science – and graduate ready to enter the world of business.

Everyone from Pulp to the Spice Girls has rehearsed or recorded at Red Tape over the years. It opened in 1986 with support from Phil Oakey, who was topping the charts around that time with The Human League, and is perhaps the only recording studio in the country to be run by its local council. Here, music industry professionals teach courses in areas like music technology, music performance, the music business and composition, all with the aim of helping students get into the music industry.

VISIT

Sheffield’s a city of culture, home to some of the most exciting theatres in the country, a landmark indie cinema, a never-ending festival season, and a string of galleries that make for a great art trail. And that’s not to mention all the art and poetry to be discovered in the streets. It’s also, famously, a green city – and the green isn’t just at its hilly edges; it’s in the very heart of the city, where an urban glasshouse sits next to a beautiful public garden. There’s fun for all the family here, whether it’s at a huge leisure complex or an indoor adventure game. In between all that, there are historic sights to check off that nod to a proud industrial heritage, and after a busy trip, some great spots to slow down and relax. Getting to Sheffield is easy – the city’s well connected by railway and motorway. And when you’re here, the Supertram and expansive local bus network will help you get around without a hitch.

LAURA SILLARS – SITE GALLERY What do we have to look forward to at Site Gallery when it reopens? The new Site Gallery opens in September 2018. It’s a simple architectural proposition with a lovely new café, reception, book shop and events space all leading to a big, airy gallery space. Expect some smart exhibitions which are designed to ask questions, some bold solo projects where an artist takes over the whole space, and a regular programme of events, performances and activity. What excites you most about the art scene in Sheffield? The artists and the makers. Sheffield attracts really good artists who I enjoy working with and spending time with. This year we did a creative exchange between South Korea and Busan. The artists stayed for two weeks and the creative scene embraced them. I love the quiet ambition of the place. There are artists living and working in Sheffield who are famous all over the world – but that doesn’t cut it here, you have to contribute to the community and connect with people to make an impact. What would you say to someone visiting Site Gallery for the first time? Firstly, I’d say ‘welcome’. Then I’d probably bore them silly about how the place grew out of a DIY art scene in the 1970s led by artists who made photographs and wanted the form to be perceived as art. This goal was achieved and the indelible mark left by the founders is the interest in working with new forms of media which has expanded to include performance, live art and art which draws on new technology. Then I’d stop talking, show them some art and offer them a coffee!

MARK RIDDINGTON – GLOAM GALLERY What’s been the biggest challenge in the process of setting up GLOAM? I work full-time for a charity whilst running the gallery, and as this is a new venture finding the financial stability and allocating the time to make it work has meant a lot of hard work with very little recovery time, especially during the initial build of the artists’ studios. However, I have a great group of friends who have been incredible, volunteering time to help build walls, painting and generally being very supportive of the whole project. What advice would you give to other young artists wanting to set up their own gallery spaces? It is a very rewarding experience and when the doors finally opened to the public the response was incredible and slightly overwhelming. What I would say is know what you want to achieve and be prepared to put the work in to realise your ambitions. I like to think of an art community as a sort of ecosystem where without the support and existence of likeminded and dedicated individuals, the community would not exist. It’s difficult for something to be standalone, so connect with your peers and build that network because it will be invaluable in the long run. What are your future plans for GLOAM? I’m going to continue developing the programme, working closely with artists locally and nationally, to develop great exhibitions and opportunities. We have a fantastic set of studio holders at GLOAM, and I want to be able to offer them exhibition opportunities and support their development. The gallery has been open for six months and I have learned a lot in this short time and am looking forward to the future and growing the gallery into a sustainable platform for artist development.

Feature Walls In autumn 2016, artists Ed Bradbury and Florence Blanchard invited sixteen internationally renowned street artists to Sheffield to create canvases of the city’s walls thanks to funding from Sheffield BID, Arts Council England and the University of Sheffield. As they put it, “Sheffield has a long tradition of spontaneously lending walls to its most creative street artists” – and they wanted to add to this tradition. The artists showcased a diverse range of talents and styles, and together left behind a colourful, lasting and unique outdoor gallery in the city’s streets. Locations of Feature Walls murals include Birley Lane car park (Nano 4814), Wellington Street car park (Jo Peel, Will Barras, Michael Fikaris, Kid Acne), The Red Deer on Pitt Lane (Frau Isa), and Westfield Terrace (Tellas). The walls of the city are constantly changing their looks – keep an eyes peeled for new murals as you wander the streets. 82

DEBORAH EGAN OBE – DINA Why do you think it’s important to nurture the DIY performance scene in Sheffield? DIY performance spaces are essential because they fill a clear and identified gap in our cultural fabric. They are starting places for people’s careers and the emergence of new work. Sheffield, like all cities, needs environments where new ideas can be forged and fast-tracked. DIY spaces provide the first rungs on the ladder toward professional production for early filmmakers, theatre-makers and musicians. DINA was conceived as a platform which would extol new talent and emerging work. After eighteen months it has become a hub for audiences and practitioners, and sustains a solid community of makers working in a range of cultural discipline What do you enjoy most about running DINA? What I really enjoy is encountering the unheard and the unseen, epitomising what Robert Hughes called ‘the shock of the new’ – fresh work which makes us re-examine our thinking and expectations. What does the future hold for DINA? We are continuing to build and commit to providing our city with a place that can profile challenging work and support early career artists. We’re opening The Cellar, a new 32-seater auditorium space which will be dedicated to the commercially untenable. Led by director Miriam Schlechter, it will offer a dedicated space for scratch nights, residencies, meet-ups, workshops and experimental performances. The big vision involves making DINA a permanent fixture in the heart of the city, connected to new public squares and spaces and entwined with the development of the city centre’s physical and social infrastructure – watch this space!

– PUBLIC

What do you think sets Public apart from other bars in Sheffield? Attention to detail. More so than anything we’ve done before the detail has been the focus from the beginning. It feels like the most complete in terms of vision and ethos running through the design, interiors, drinks and service standards. That’s maybe the best thing about it being so small, it allows you to really get down to the tiny details. That makes it stand out I think, that and it’s in an old bog, obviously. Which artists and creatives have you enjoyed collaborating with at Public? Well, the three people we work with every time and who are a massive part of our team are Nick Deakin on the design side, India Hobson with her wonderful photography and thirdly, a bit of an unsung hero, Ben Pickup of Rocket Design. Ben is the man who takes our daft ideas about interiors and our endless Pinterest boards and actually makes them a reality. Essentially we throw loads of mad ideas around and swan around being ‘creatives’ and then he makes the bars using his bare hands! He’s an unbelievably talented craftsman. We’ve also been lucky to work with some other really talented friends including Franky Hague at Grey Suit Clay on the crockery, Syd & Mallory on the aprons, Joe at Bear Tree Records, Tom J Newell on the record signage and Charlie Jepson on videos. Which of Public’s cocktails do you find yourself returning to again and again? The Public Highball. One of Jack Wakelin’s (pictured centre) very best in my opinion and the perfect drink to convert people who think they don’t like whisky.

SHOP

It’s easy to shop independent in Sheffield city centre. You’ll find indie shops dedicated to books, plants, unusual gifts and records. Others where local makers show off their wares. And, in the Devonshire Quarter, a cluster of designer boutiques and vintage shops that create a hub of student life. That’s not to say the city doesn’t do high street, though – big names and national treasures, including John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Hotel Chocolat, Pandora, Primark, Debenhams, Lush and Topshop, can be found down Fargate and on The Moor. Add to all that a shiny new market filled with fresh produce, and you’ll want to grab your purse and go shopping in no time.

KIRSTEEN & LUCY – SYD & MALLORY What’s the best thing about running your business in Sheffield? Sheffield is a great facilitator for independent businesses like ours. It’s a good community, where you get to know other people and people really do help each other. The cost of living and rent is cheap too. Where do you take your design inspiration from? We’re inspired by current trends, the catwalk, music, television, film and art. Whatever we’re watching or into at the time inspires our design process. I’ve been drawing lots of nudes recently and Lucy is into nude fabrics so our new collection was inspired by life drawing and the female form. Why do you think your punk aesthetic and DIY fashion appeals so much to people? I think our DIY fashion appeals because it looks like people could make it themselves. I’m not remotely offended if someone says, ‘I could make that’. That’s kinda the whole point. It’s different from the mainstream but also not too different that it’s not accessible. I hope people do feel inspired to make their own stuff and I’ve been told many times that people have done just that.

ALEX MAXWELL – LA BIBLIOTEKA How do you choose the publications for La Biblioteka? We’re avid magazine buyers and readers – the shop developed from the idea that we could buy extra copies of what we were buying and sell them on to our friends. We also get lots of customer requests and recommendations, which we love. Now we’re in the position of getting things sent to us, which is very lucky, as it can be difficult to keep abreast of what’s happening, especially since we’re away from the London-centric ‘scene’. What’s best about being based in Sheffield? The fact that we’re away from the London buzz is actually a help. We have space to do what we want to do and share the stories that matter to our customers. Sheffield’s a beautiful city, nestled amongst the best green space in the country, filled with some of the warmest people. Why do you think print enjoys enduring popularity, despite the continued rise of digital publishing? Digital publishing had a chance to be the next stepchange in experience, using multimedia to enhance the storytelling. Beyond a few projects, what we got was poorly formatted PDFs and embedded YouTube links. Essentially, there wasn’t enough investment and publishers were naive in thinking the natural movement to digital would be enough, but people care about that experience and their time is precious. Print publishers realised this and I think we’re now moving to a great age of beautifully-designed, novel publications, telling a range of stories that are nearly as diverse as the readers who enjoy them.

WORK

It was Sheffield’s workers who made the city internationally famous in the 19th century, pioneering developments in steel that changed the world. Though heavy industry has declined in recent decades, much of the city’s workforce keeps alive its heritage of technological innovation. And Sheffield’s reputation for cutting-edge enterprise continues to define much of its changed economy. The city centre is now home to thousands of public and private enterprises. Many of these are in the professional, scientific and technical industries, while the number of creative and digital industries has boomed since the 80s. These industries are focussed in central hubs like Electric Works, The Workstation and Sheffield Technology Parks, creating an exciting community of startups and ventures both large and small. The city centre’s unique character, as well as its good connections to rail and road networks, have also attracted global and national corporations. The likes of DLA Piper, Mott MacDonald, Ove Arup, Sky and Zoo Digital have invested in Sheffield, becoming major employers that stand harmoniously alongside the independent business community. Together, all of this makes for a vibrant and dynamic city centre, driven by an innovative and creative workforce who reap the benefits of working, socialising and living here. The following pages give just a flavour of some of the businesses who have chosen to invest in the city centre.

Sheffield BID In 2015, over 500 businesses in Sheffield city centre collectively decided to invest in improving their environment. They wanted a busier, more vibrant city centre. They wanted a city centre that’s cleaner, safer, and easier to access and navigate. And they wanted a stronger voice. That’s where Sheffield BID comes in. The BID (Business Improvement District) is the very centre of Sheffield – marked out by the boundary of the old inner city ring road. Within this area, Sheffield BID’s five-year action plan is to provide services requested by any and all local businesses, across all sectors, and to support them in achieving the aims laid out above.

– Sheffield BID –


This book is just one of Sheffield BID’s projects. Another BID strategy is Alive After Five, which promotes all that happens in the city centre when daytime turns into evening, and encourages businesses to open for late night shopping on Thursdays. To date, the BID has been involved in events including BBC Music Day, the Herd of Sheffield sculpture trail, Feature Walls street art festival, and the Cliffhanger outdoor festival, which moved to the city centre for the first time in 2016. It’s also partner to ReNew Sheffield, which helps start-up enterprises to take up vacant units in the city centre, and sponsor to Best Bar None, a scheme that recognises responsible licensing practice. Sheffield BID works collaboratively to make the city centre more enjoyable, more social, safer, healthier and easier to get around.

Getting to Sheffield

Getting around

By train

By tram

Sheffield is well connected, with regular direct trains to most of the country’s major cities. Leeds, Manchester and Nottingham are each less than 1 hour away by train; London St Pancras 2 hours; and Edinburgh 4 hours.

Hop on the Supertram at various points across the city – stops include the Railway Station, the University, Sheffield Cathedral and West Street.

nationalrail.co.uk

By bus

By coach

Sheffield’s bus network reaches far and wide. Pick up a timetable from Sheffield Interchange (over the road from the Railway Station), or use their handy journey planner.

National Express coaches regularly pull up at Sheffield Interchange, right in the city centre. Megabus drops off and picks up at Meadowhall, a tram ride away.

nationalexpress.com uk.megabus.com

travelsouthyorkshire.com/journeyplanning

On foot

By road There are a multitude of parking options in the city centre. Alternatively you can Park and Ride at a number of spots just outside the city. Park at Nunnery Sqaure, Meadowhall, Centertainment, IKEA, Halfway, Malin Bridge, or Middlewood, and catch the Supertram into the centre.

The city centre isn’t huge, and you’re bound to discover more of the little things to love in Sheffield when you’re able to amble any which way you fancy!

By air

Sound as a pound!

Sheffield is easily accessible by air. The closest airport is Doncaster Sheffield, around 30 minutes from the city centre by car. Manchester, Leeds Bradford and East Midlands airports are all just over an hour away by car. A direct rail link between Manchester airport and Sheffield also takes just over an hour. The London airports of Heathrow and Gatwick can be reached by train within 3-4 hours, with a change in London.

Park your car in a council car park or use an on-street parking space after 4.30pm on weekdays and in most cases it’ll only cost a quid. Then you’ve got the whole evening to explore all that the city centre has to offer.
