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. Created by Sheffield BID, this book is a showcase of all that’s unique and independent in Sheffield city centre. It shares stories from the city’s makers and doers – like a cafe owner who serves the stars of theatreland, an architect who fell in love with Sheffield’s modernist buildings, and a gallery chief who finds inspiration in the city’s energy and ambition. This is 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.

Seiko Kinoshita


Seiko Kinoshita is an artist based at Yorkshire Artspace in Sheffield’s Cultural Industries Quarter. She creates beautiful, increasingly large-scale installations, such as the textile piece ‘Blue Bird’ that falls from the ceiling in Sheffield’s Central Library. What’s the best thing about being based in Sheffield? I think people are very friendly and always happy to help – so many creative minded people are here. Where’s your favourite place in the city? Some people think I am a bit sad, but I absolutely love being in my studio. It hasn’t changed since I moved to Sheffield over 10 years ago. What makes Sheffield so appealing to aspiring artists and makers? There are so many different craft people and artists with different skills. We can collaboratively work together to create something you cannot do yourself. I have been so lucky that I have all friends, makers and artists nearby to help and advise me when I am working on something new.


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 (p106) 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.

£1million Yearly turnover of Sheffield’s artists’ studios

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 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 week (see p90), in the Wellington Street car park, and some of her prints are on sale at APG Works (see p13).

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


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.

Mark Hobson


Corporation – or Corp, as locals fondly call it – is a legendary club in Sheffield’s Devonshire Quarter. It was established nearly 20 years ago by Mark Hobson along with a group of promoters and DJs, who “wanted to bring entertainment here that the city was missing out on, and at affordable prices”. They succeeded, and the Corp family has now expanded to include Local Authority and Trafalgar Warehouse next door. What’s the best thing about running a business in Sheffield? From the point of view of the live music and nightclub sector, I feel our close cooperation is one of our biggest achievements. This detailed level of communication has resulted in a united group that represents the sector. This is something that is unique in the country. Corporation won Best Live Venue in the Live UK Music Business Awards 2013. Which live shows stand out the most for you? This is a tough one as we’ve had so many legendary bands, covering lots of different genres, play stand-out performances here over the years. A few that spring to mind are; Bring Me The Horizon – it’s great watching a local band find their feet, and you could see they had something special. Lamb of God supported by Chimaira – one of the most ferocious gigs ever to happen at Corporation. Bowling For Soup – they are literally the funniest band to see on stage. Murderdolls supported by Black Veil Brides – this tour happened just as Black Veil Brides broke and it was mental. Skindred – they just tore the entire place up, an absolutely blinding show from start to finish. 27

BBC Music Day In 2015, the first BBC Music Day brought people together to celebrate all that’s great about music, with communities up and down the country shining a spotlight on their musical talent. The event returned in June 2016 – and this time, Sheffield really went to town. The city centre became the stage for a huge and diverse – and free – showcase of local music. Every generation was entertained, in public spaces ranging from the Peace Gardens to Sheffield Station to the steps of the City Hall. There was opera on the Town Hall balcony, a headphone disco in the market, an exhibition of music memories in the Winter Garden, steel drumming on the Wicker, a massive free rave. Music even made it onto the trams, where Sheffield legend Jarvis Cocker was on the tannoy and homegrown bands busked up and down the lines. Look forward to the next annual BBC Music Day, for more unique musical events in the most unlikely locations.

Tramlines Tramlines weekend is the liveliest weekend of the year in Sheffield. The inner-city music festival fills three outdoor stages with incredible bands and artists from near and far. In the very centre of the city there’s the Devonshire Green stage, and beyond that there’s the Folk Forest in Endcliffe Park and the main stage at Ponderosa. The fun doesn’t end there, though; official after-parties keep people dancing into the early hours at venues including o2 Academy. And the Tramlines fringe sees bars all over the city put on their own lineups of local acts, together creating a diverse celebration of music. The festival’s family has grown in recent years to include Outlines, a Tramlines Jr. for the colder months.

Sensoria Each autumn, Sensoria takes over some of the city’s more unique and atmospheric venues for a festival of film, music and digital. Now approaching its 10th edition, the Sensoria programme has included live soundtracks, drive-in cinemas and outdoor screenings, multi venue gigs, SynthFest UK and audiovisual installations. The festival also hosts SensoriaPro Industry Day. It’s anyone’s guess what this ever innovative festival will do next.

Music in the Round Music in the Round is here to make classical music accessible to all. It hosts top-notch chamber music concerts in the intimate Crucible Studio, often featuring MITR’s resident group Ensemble 360, and puts on an international classical festival each May. First-timers and those under 35 can get £5 tickets, while some events are even ticketed on a “pay-what-youwant” basis. There are plenty of workshops and concerts to keep children and families entertained too.

Frog and Parrot For a long time, this student-friendly boozer has been a Devonshire Quarter favourite. On Saturday nights, the Frog and Parrot tends to host specialist DJs, spinning anything from Motown and northern soul to ska and reggae. The pub also regularly hosts free gigs by local talent – good luck getting a seat during its packed Tramlines fringe weekender.

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.

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.

O2 Academy Sheffield 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.

无论是温馨酒吧的抒情爵士,还是热闹 夜总会里的当地摇滚,亦或是隆重亮相 市政厅舞台的大牌明星,在每周的任何 一个夜晚,您都可以在谢菲尔德市中心 发现精彩的现场音乐。



自从人类联盟乐队在20世纪80年代凭借其流行电子音乐单曲 和摇滚发行赢得国际声誉以来,谢菲尔德始终让人联想起电 子乐。 今天,这个城市的各类音乐输出收获无数美誉,从 Britpoppers Pulp及其领军人物贾维斯卡克,到pop舞者摩 洛克,乃至低吟歌手理查德·霍利,以及现今大红大紫的北 极猴子乐队和飞越地平线乐团,可谓不胜枚举。 他们还只是属于已经脱颖而出成为主流的那一部分。



根据2015年的一份报告,全市共有465 个乐队,65个录音工作室和70个专用音 乐场馆。 其中包括Leadmill——谢菲尔德独立音 乐的一个标志性建筑,三十年来,一直 处于这座城市音乐界的中心。 自1997年以来,占用三层楼的夜总会 Corporation始终是谢菲尔德摇滚和另 类音乐的大本营,而西街现场(West Street Live)则几乎夜夜笙歌。 Crystal、Plug和o2 Academy等场 馆很受学生族和当地人的欢迎,而 Bungalows和Bears则经常上演来自英 国和美国的最新独立摇滚乐。 如果您更钟情爵士乐,不妨前往 Trippets,这家音乐酒吧就位于西街附 近。古典音乐爱好者则可以前往Music in the Round,他们在气氛私密的 Crucible工作室举办室内音乐会,门票 最低只需5英镑。



每年夏季,Tramlines内城音乐节会都吸引了当地和国外的乐 队和艺术家前来献艺,充斥了整座城市的舞台。 这是谢菲尔德市中心一年中最繁忙的一个周末,大多数酒吧 也会借此机会组织起自己的当地演出阵容,将音乐氛围推至 巅峰。 冬季期间,Tramlines的组织者会举办小型的Outlines音乐 节。春季的BBC音乐日让所有年龄段的人们以各种方式免费 享受音乐。 而在秋季,不要错过颇具新意的Sensoria电影、音乐和数码 艺术节,活动地点设在更独特、更具氛围的场馆。 既然市中心有如此多的舞台上演如此多的音乐,何不走出门 外,聆听精彩的音乐,一饱“耳”福。



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 small-scale, 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. – City of Beer –


Jules Gray


What Jules Gray doesn’t know about beer in Sheffield isn’t worth knowing. Jules is behind the annual Sheffield Beer Week – the week-long celebration of beer which coincides with the popular SIBA conference and Beer X festival in March, and spans pubs and breweries across Sheffield, including city centre venues Sheffield Tap, The Bath Hotel, The Red Deer, Devonshire Cat, Tap and Tankard, and The Three Tuns. What do you think has caused such a boom in breweries popping up over recent years in Sheffield? The beer boom has been growing for some time in Sheffield, reignited by Dave Wickett and The Fat Cat/Kelham Island Brewery in the early 90s. Having a driving force in a scene can really inspire others. I found out on a trip to Norwich recently that Sheffield’s Fat Cat pub inspired a namesake pub and brewery in that city too – so influences can reverberate nationally. Economically, the 2002 introduction of progressive beer duty influenced the growth of microbreweries. New and traditional breweries are now exploring and experimenting with beer styles and brewing techniques outside of that classic golden cask ale sphere. From a consumer point of view, there’s been a realisation, similar to the resurgent interest in food, that beer is a handmade product. Beer can be brewed on a small scale with great ingredients and attention to detail, and the end product is a joy to drink. People then become fascinated with the craft of the brewing process and want to learn more about the breweries and beers out there. It becomes a wonderful lifelong journey.


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.

Sentinel Brewhouse

Sheffield Tap

A short walk from Sheffield station, Sentinel is a destination brewery, opened in 2016 by master brewer Alex Barlow. It brews a core range of British, continental and American style beers as well as seasonal casks and occasional limited edition bottles. They all travel a matter of metres from the brewery tank to the hand pulls and taps – fresh, unfiltered and unpasteurised. The food menu includes pizza, meat and cheese boards, and even some beer-tinged meals (pilsner battered haddock, for instance), while the brewery also hosts film nights and courses for those looking to get a deeper understanding of beer styles, flavours and food pairings.

Sheffield Railway Station’s popular on-site pub is housed in a series of elegant rooms on platform 1B. It was once a first class refreshment room, but reopened as the Sheffield Tap in 2009. The bar stocks over 200 beers, both local and international, and there’s even a small brewery in the back room. It’s a stunning place to sink a pint before catching a train.

Alex Barlow


Brewer Alex Barlow established Sentinel Brewing Co in 2016. The brewery and tap is a beacon of beer bliss in the Cultural Industries Quarter, an area that Alex loves for “its history and gritty realism; you can tangibly feel old Sheffield, yet it’s becoming modern and more vibrant.” What’s the best thing about running your business in Sheffield? In many ways it’s the same reason so many of us, particularly those originally from elsewhere, love Sheffield: the friendly nature. Brewing is friendly and collaborative and doing business in Sheffield is much the same. What sets Sentinel apart from other microbreweries in the city? I like to think we’re a complimentary addition to the already great Sheffield beer scene. Having a bar from which you can see the entire journey from grain to glass in 20 metres is pretty unusual. As far as I know we’re the only place in the world selling hand-pulled beer straight from brewery tank. And 70% of the brewery’s perimeter is surrounded by glass, all of which makes us a bit different.


The Devonshire Cat The roomy Dev Cat is a landmark of the Devonshire Quarter. The pub offers a huge, ever changing array of beers – from Belgian fruit beer to German wheat beer to local pale ales – as well as traditional ciders and hearty pub grub.

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.

– City of Charity –




A group of University of Sheffield students initiated the Foodhall project, transforming a former industrial building into a thriving community cafe aimed at tackling issues of food waste, food poverty and social isolation. The team also work their transformative power in the kitchen, turning reclaimed and donated food into high quality meals that are then served on a pay-as-you-feel, not-for-profit basis. Where is Foodhall based? We work in the Cultural Industries Quarter. It has a broad demographic and hosts a wide range of social and cultural groups, which we love meeting and working with. We serve people from all backgrounds, and bringing them together over food creates some very special moments. Tell us a little about the “pay-asyou-feel” concept. The pay-as-you-feel model allows those in need to access food regardless of their ability to pay. This enables everyone a seat at the same table. Those who donate generously subsidise those that can’t pay.


Cathedral Archer Project

Ben’s Centre

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 with issues including homelessness, ill health and substance abuse.

A sanctuary for Sheffield’s street drinkers since 1996. Ben’s Centre grew out of a self-help group of street drinkers, who met regularly to provide mutual support to each other, with the support of then PC Ian “Ben” Sherman. The charity’s drop-in service provides hot food, clothing, washing facilities and shelter during the day, and helps link people to services that can help them recover from alcohol and drug addiction. Look out for Ben’s 21st birthday celebrations in 2017, which will include exhibitions and events in the city centre.

Sheffield Cathedral, Campo Lane, S1 2EF / 0114 263 6970

Roundabout Youth housing charity Roundabout provides secure and supportive shelter for homeless young people in Sheffield. With a hostel, bedsits and shared housing across the city, the charity helps young people live independently and learn how to break the cycle of homelessness. Roundabout also offers advice on alcohol abuse and managing money, while in the city centre the charity’s well-stocked shop shares a building with its homeless prevention service. You can support Roundabout at one of its fundraising events, including the annual sleep out, a firewalk or a 10K run.

The Circle, 33 Rockingham Lane, S1 4FW / 0114 253 6789

ASSIST 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.

15 North Church Street, S1 2DH / 07771 897 086

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, who 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.

Gail Gibbons


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. Young people have shaped our services, to guarantee that it meets their needs.


Sheffield Futures

£810million The value the Third Sector generates for the city.

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.

Foodhall 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.

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. Around 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.

– City of Learning –


Sheffield Hallam University Sheffield Hallam University grew out of the merging of several Sheffield colleges, the oldest of which dates back to 1843. Today, SHU is the sixth largest uni in the country. The university campus is constantly evolving and innovating, and an impressive new entrance is set to open opposite Sheffield station, at the gateway to the city, in 2017. Its state-of-the-art facilities attract large numbers of students from overseas and also make a big impact locally, recruiting over 65% of home students from the city region and contributing £424m a year to its economy. 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.

Sheffield Hallam is the 6th largest university in the UK.

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.

Red Tape Central

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.

创新思维。 高瞻远瞩的合作。 自由辩论。 在谢菲尔德的学习中心,有无数条通 往发现和发明的大道。



这座城市是远近学生求学的首选之地。 大约有6万名学生在谢菲尔德两所大学的实验室、图书馆和讲 堂辛勤忙碌着,其中不少是来自海外的留学生。 本地学生和国际学生相聚一堂,不仅有助于在学术上有所作 为,而且对谢菲尔德的文化和经济也起到巨大的积极影响。 谢菲尔德大学和谢菲尔德哈勒姆大学吸引了来自近150个国 家的学生和教职人员,在这座城市里打造出真正意义上的国 际社区。



红砖名校谢菲尔德大学由创立于19世纪的三所院校合并而 来:谢菲尔德医学院、弗斯学院和谢菲尔德技术学校。 英国首位宇航员海伦·沙曼、喜剧演员艾迪·伊扎德和《狼 厅》的作者希拉里·曼特尔等人都是谢菲尔德大学的知名校 友。 在合并了谢菲尔德的数所学院后,谢菲尔德哈勒姆大学不断 发展壮大,其中最古老的一所学院可以追溯到1843年。 而今,谢菲尔德哈勒姆大学是全英规模第六大的大学,学生 来自世界各地。 其知名校友包括演员肖恩·宾、奥运冠军凯利·福尔摩斯、 餐具设计师大卫·梅勒、《超级无敌掌门狗》导演尼克·帕 克,以及涂鸦艺术家基德·艾克尼。 除名校外,这里还有一座恢弘大气的公共图书馆,以及从计 算机到餐具制作等各有专精的学院,谢菲尔德的求学之旅永 无止境。



谢菲尔德中央图书馆是一座精致的新古典主义建筑,自1934年以来一直为 这座城市服务。 想要在计算机、创意和数字媒体、高级工程和制造、健康科学领域大展身 手的学生可以加入大学技术学院(UTC),毕业后定能学有所成,信心满 满地走上工作岗位。 同时,在文化产业区内,弗里曼学院(Freeman)为16至25岁、有特殊 教育需求和残疾的学生提供日间、居家教育和照料。 弗里曼的教学将实用技能(如餐具制作、珠宝、园艺、音乐、纺织)与治 疗教育相结合。 这里的年轻人还可以在合作的风行(Fusion)有机咖啡园里种植作物和烹 饪多种多样的食物。 市中心不仅是一个学习的好去处,也是一个充满活力的生活之所。 因此,不少学生在毕业后不愿离开,选择留下来,也就不足为奇了。




Sheffield’s a city of culture, home to some of the most exciting theatres in the country, a landmark indie cinema, a neverending 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.

Kim Streets


Kim Streets is CEO of Museums Sheffield, the charity that’s responsible for Millennium Gallery and Graves Gallery, in the city centre, and Weston Park Museum, near the University of Sheffield. Between them, these inspiring sites welcome over a million visitors a year from across the city and beyond, as well as schoolchildren from pretty much every primary school in the city. What’s the best thing about working in Sheffield city centre? The city centre has stunning public realm and a strong sense of how important that is for our population. There is a real energy and determination to make sure that Sheffield continues to thrive as a creative, successful, vibrant city and it’s a privilege to be part of that ambition. There are some brilliant networks and it’s an inspiring place to be. The art scene in Sheffield has truly revealed itself over the past few years. Which has been your favourite exhibition since you started working for Museums Sheffield? Yes, it has! There are so many exhibitions to choose from. The one I’m most proud of is the Made in Sheffield show – a breathtaking fusion of art, design and industry that featured the work of over 140 individual artists, makers and manufacturers. It made me feel very proud of Sheffield.


Millennium Gallery Located in the heart of Sheffield, this gallery and museum is the city’s premier destination for art, craft and design. It’s home to an exquisite collection of metalwork and a fascinating exploration of beauty in the Ruskin Collection, while its changing galleries host an intriguing and accessible array of exhibitions. The gallery also facilitates regular talks, tours, craft clubs and workshops – with adults, families, schools, colleges and universities all catered for – and its shop is certainly worth a visit for prints, homeware, clothing, stationery and books, many of which are made by local Sheffield makers.

You’ll spot a fair few murals by Florence on the city centre’s streets too. Tell us what it’s like running an independent gallery in Sheffield. We started B&B in 2013 and have had an incredible response from the people of Sheffield, whom have provided continuing support. There is a very responsive audience for independent businesses of all kinds, which makes it exciting and gives us a kick to push ourselves further. Where’s your favourite place in Sheffield? Sheffield has many amazing places to visit. We love our cobble stones on Mary Street, with the Leadmill, Millennium Gallery and APG nearby. You grew up in France and have lived in the US. What then drew you to Sheffield? I visited Sheffield on holiday in 2006 and fell in love with the place. I was still living in New York back then, and I was ready for a change. I felt Sheffield had this diamond in the rough type of quality, a place where there was still room for new things to happen, lots of potential – a big contrast and advantage compared to New York!

Feature Walls In autumn 2016, artists Ed Bradbury and Florence Blanchard, of B&B Gallery, 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 Wellington Street car park (Jo Peel, Will Barras, Michael Fikaris, Kid Acne) and Charles Street (Agostino Iacurci, Faunagraphic) – for the full map of all the murals created during the event, dotting the city centre, see the B&B Gallery website. 90

Dan Bates


Sheffield Theatres is the largest theatre complex outside of London, comprising the Crucible, the Lyceum and the Crucible Studio. Since he joined as chief executive in 2009, Dan Bates has overseen an exciting time in the company’s history: the reopening of the iconic Crucible following a huge refurbishment and its annual Christmas musical becoming an institution, as well the World Snooker Championships continuing to define springtime in Tudor Square and the likes of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen treading the Lyceum boards. What’s the best thing about working at Sheffield Theatres? Definitely the people – the people we work with, some of whom have been with us for many years, and the people who come to see our shows. We have around 7,500 people coming to see our shows every week and the feedback we get from them is invaluable and helps us to constantly improve. They can be very frank! You’ve showcased some fantastic performances at Sheffield Theatres recently – which has been your favourite? I think my favourite would have to be Flowers For Mrs Harris, which we produced last summer. It was a Cinderella story and a really wonderful piece of theatre. It also won four awards at the UK Theatre Awards, including joint best musical production with another of our productions, Show Boat.

Crucible Theatre The Crucible Theatre is known for being the next theatre stop on show tours after London. With famous faces treading the boards and having won The Regional Theatre Award twice, the Crucible is a big tick in the box for acting lovers. Specialising mainly in plays it boasts a main theatre of 1000 seats and a smaller adjoining space, the Crucible Studio, which holds just under 400. The Crucible is the main feature of the stunning Tudor Square and it’s just a short walk from the train station. It’s also surrounded by a wonderful selection of cafes and restaurants, handy for a perfect evening at the theatre.

Lyceum Theatre The Lyceum is one of Sheffield’s oldest and grandest theatres. There’s been a stage on-site since 1879 and it has gone through many regenerations in its life. It’s now home to a 1068 seat theatre and acts as a touring theatre for some of the country’s largest scale musical and opera performances. It is also home to the yearly pantomime, a much-loved and cherished Sheffield tradition. The Lyceum sits next to the Crucible in Tudor Square opposite the picturesque Winter Garden and it’s surrounded by some of the city’s best bars and restaurants.

Theatre Delicatessen specialises in turning disused buildings into thriving arts hubs, hosting some of the country’s most innovative theatre companies. The organisation started out in London and in 2014 it looked north, taking up residence in the cavernous shell of what was once Woolworths. You never quite know what’s in store at a Theatre Delicatessen show – it might involve anything from audience participation to virtual reality to beat boxing. What do you like best about being based in Sheffield? We offer something quite unique and I think Sheffield is a great place to do that. Everyone loves supporting local business and local artists and that is exactly what we do here at Theatre Delicatessen. Thanks to wonderful things like Our Favourite Places, I also feel a lot of support for cultural activities. What does the future hold for Theatre Delicatessen? The future is always relatively uncertain for Theatre Delicatessen! As we work in temporary spaces, everyone’s always asking us ‘so when are you moving? Where are you going?’ In honesty, we don’t always know. One thing is for certain – we would like to stay in Sheffield, and we have even bigger plans for immersive theatre in 2017. Watch this space!

Theatre Delicatessen Theatre Delicatessen started as a London project but now resides here in Sheffield. The team work with commercial property owners to take abandoned buildings and turn them into artistic hubs. These hubs are then opened up to artists, groups and charities who can use them to create performances. They mainly support emerging theatre makers working with non-traditional styles of performance. Theatre Deli have taken over the “Old Woolworths” on The Moor in the city centre and transformed this abandoned space into a place where the general public can take in new and cutting edge work being created in Sheffield.

Women of Steel Standing proudly next to City Hall, the Women of Steel statue marks a celebration of Sheffield women’s amazing contribution to the war effort in both world wars, specifically in the steel industry. Serving as an inspiration to young women today as well as rewarding the invaluable efforts of the women of steel, this statue symbolises the struggles women were forced to overcome in those chaotic times, from having to take on incredibly dangerous and demanding roles whilst managing a family. Constructed by Martin Jennings, the Women of Steel statue is an important part of Sheffield’s history and landscape today.

Winter Garden

Sheffield Cathedral

Located in the heart of the city and home to more than 2500 plants, the Winter Garden is one of Sheffield’s most cherished sites thanks to its beautiful glass architecture. This vibrant area is the perfect afternoon stroll location for taking in the picturesque plant life and it’s a great lunchtime spot too, with cafes offering hot drinks and light refreshments. The Winter Garden also contains several retail units, many of which stock the works of local makers and artists. There’s no doubt that it’s a wonderful attraction, with its calm atmosphere, and direct connection to the Millennium Gallery.

The Cathedral has been a focal point of the city centre for over 1000 years. It is the oldest building to still be used on a daily basis within the city. The first brick was laid on this site by William de Lovetot when he was building the township of Sheffield and has had a rich and lively history ever since. Not only is it a place of worship but the Cathedral is also home to some fantastic projects, such as the Archer Project which supports adults at risk of homelessness. They provide care and support to all they can and long term care to those who need it most.

谢菲尔德是一座文化城市,拥有一 部分全英国最具魅力的剧院、一家 具有历史意义的独立电影院、一个 永不停歇的节日季和多家美术馆, 足以开启一段精彩的艺术之旅。



谢菲尔德的大部分剧院都位于城市中心地带的都灵广场周围。 当夜幕降临,广场渐渐苏醒,随处可见往返于 Crucible、Crucible、Lyceum或Library Theatre剧院的观众。 在市中心的另一端,Theatre Delicatessen上演有别具一格、常 带有些互动性的当代表演,时不时还会组织实验性的演出。 除了谢菲尔德剧院一条街外,市政厅作为全郡最著名、最美轮美 奂的场所之一,举办从舞厅舞蹈到喜剧、乃至摇滚和歌剧的各种 舞台演出。 而在市政厅外面则傲然树立着多座塑像: 钢铁女工雕像于2016 年揭幕,旨在向两次世界大战期间让谢菲尔德的钢铁厂开足马 力、夜以继日地运行的无名英雄们致敬。 要感受谢菲尔德的历史变迁,不妨移步进入谢菲尔德大教堂内。 谢菲尔德大教堂成为谢菲尔德市中心的焦点场所已有1000多年之 久,这里拥有丰富鲜活的历史。 大教堂不仅是一个做礼拜的地方,还经常举办音乐会和展览,并 开展慈善工作帮助有需要的人们。



如果您想了解谢菲尔德的艺术,则务必要参观千年美术 馆——这座城市艺术、工艺和设计的首要目的地。 其长期陈列的展品包括谢菲尔德大名鼎鼎的金属制品收藏和 旨在探索审美观念的拉斯金个人收藏系列。 年代更久远的格拉夫美术馆则是一个更加宁静而传统的画 廊,陈列有全市收集的数百年前的艺术品。 这两家美术馆都有着激动人心的临时展览和巡展计划。 在谢菲尔德一些较小的当代艺术画廊,例如Site Gallery、 Bank Street Arts、APG Works、B&B Gallery和99 Mary Street等,也有许多令人惊喜的展品供人品鉴。 更不要说街头随处可见的艺术和诗歌。 谢菲尔德拥有数以百计才华横溢的艺术家,他们中的许多人 把这座城市视为画布尽情描画。 2016年,特色画墙节邀请了世界各地的街头艺术家在谢菲尔 德的户外画廊留下浓墨重彩的画作。 自1991年以来,谢菲尔德诗歌节Off the Shelf也诚邀诗人在 城市的大街小巷留下其印记。 因此,当您漫步在城市街道时,不妨留意下建筑物外墙上五 颜六色的画作和诗歌。 游览


谢菲尔德也以绿色城市而闻名遐迩,不只在城市的丘陵边缘满眼皆 绿,城市的心脏地带也随处可见绿意盎然,而冬季花园(Winter Garden)的温室与风景如画的和平花园仅咫尺之隔。 在这里,一家人都能找到各自的乐趣,无论是规模庞大的休闲中心 Ponds Forge、Quasar的室内冒险,还是大逃脱游戏体验,都能 让您全家乐不思蜀。 孩子们定会爱上国立应急服务博物馆,里面陈列有互动性展品,以 及包括各个时期的超过50辆应急服务车辆。 在一段忙碌的行程后,前往Spa 1887休闲一下午,或在独立的 Showroom电影院吧度过一个晚上,放缓脚步,让这座城市的休闲 胜地帮助您放松身心。

Clare Nye


A relatively quiet lane leads between Sheffield’s theatreland and its bustling high street. There you’ll find Marmadukes, opened by Clare Nye and her family in 2012. It’s no surprise the coffee shop’s become one of the city’s most popular spots for a good brew – there’s attention to detail in every cup and dish, and on every beautifully decorated wall, in Marmadukes. Where’s your favourite place in Sheffield? That’s easy: the Crucible. Being in the midst of Sheffield’s fabulous theatre district is a complete joy. Sir Ian Mckellen recently enjoyed one of our homemade homity pies. We loved it when he popped back a couple of days later and had another. The theatres bring in stars of stage and screen, but more importantly they attract potential customers to our city. The challenge for businesses like ours is to be ready for them, to be better than the chains. The actors who come to stay for a production often become regulars – many of them were told by fellow actors that they must pay Marmadukes a visit. I so want them to go back to London with a positive impression of Sheffield and what it has to offer, beyond the stage door. What do you think makes Marmadukes such a popular spot? Independent coffee shops are sought out by coffee lovers. People know that at Marmadukes, for less than £3, they can get a coffee as good as anywhere in the world.




Nestled in the heart of Sheffield, Marmadukes is the perfect weekend lunch location thanks to its delicious deli sandwiches and salads and its superb range of drinks. Be sure to take in the beautiful rustic interior while enjoying their rich coffee and cakes.

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.

Collard Manson


There’s nowhere quite like CollardManson. The boutique is in part of a listed building, which was once the servants’ quarters for the bishop’s residence. Owners Zara and Tim have lovingly restored it, creating an atmosphere that’s unique among Sheffield shops, with curious portraits on the walls, dark tones, carefully selected clothes and their own line of leather goods. What’s the best thing about running your business in Sheffield? Sheffield is like one big village with a great community spirit. People think for themselves and are open to something that is a little different. The other thing that’s good is that there are so many talented people – we’ve collaborated with photographers, graphic designers, seamstresses, silversmiths and other skilled crafts people. Where do you take your inspiration from? Travelling, books and music. I lived in India, Amsterdam, and the Channel Islands all before the age of 6 so some of that must have rubbed off. There’s definitely a nomadic vibe to the shop. We actually now sell more and more of our clothes to Japan than to the UK – with all our recent trips there, I can see Japan being a new source of inspiration.

Atkinsons is Sheffield’s oldest and last remaining independent department store. It all began in 1872, when John Atkinson opened a small drapery shop at 90 South Street (which became The Moor during postwar reparations). The store now boasts 36 departments and four restaurants, and sits side by side exciting new developments including retail giants and a multi-screen cinema and leisure complex. We spoke to Tony Gillott about his time at Atkinsons. What do you like about being based on The Moor? Both the store and The Moor have transformed many times since our humble beginnings. We proudly stand as ambassadors for the new regeneration in this vibrant retail area – The Moor is now more than ever the key focus in Sheffield’s varied and exciting retail experience.

Atkinsons Dating way back to 1872, Atkinsons is Sheffield’s oldest independent department store – in fact, it’s now Sheffield’s only independent department store. The familyrun shop and its cafes are as popular as ever, with its friendly service, expertise and discount card keeping its discerning customers loyal – and winning over new ones, even after all these years.

Why do you think Atkinsons has stood the test of time? At one point in Sheffield’s history there stood more department stores of any city outside London. Great independent institutions like Walsh’s, Cockayne’s and Robert Brothers. All now sadly gone. When John Atkinson opened his shop back in 1872, it was always his policy to offer quality, value and exemplary service. Today, nearly 145 years later, with John Atkinson’s great grandson Nicholas at the helm, we are proud to say that nothing has changed. With our strong heritage we can look to the future and stand by this commitment to our customers, both old and new.

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.

The practice is responsible for some of the city’s most iconic postwar landmarks, and today has offices in London, Peterborough and Manchester, as well as at the heart of the Cultural Industries Quarter in its native Sheffield. We spoke to Jefferson Sheard’s Managing Director, Tom Rhys Jones about working in Sheffield. What’s your favourite building in Sheffield? Obviously we are biased, but it has to be the Moore Street Electricity Substation. This brutalist icon is recognised all over the world as a classic of the movement. We are very proud that this building, designed by our founder Bryan Jefferson, was grade II listed in 2013 and will hopefully be appreciated for many years to come by the people of Sheffield and further afield. It’s a striking form in the cityscape, in particularly when floodlit in iridescent shades of yellow and orange. Jefferson Sheard was founded in 1958. What was special about Sheffield at that time that enabled the company to go from strength to strength? At that time postwar reconstruction and radical remodelling of the city was gaining momentum. This gave the practice the opportunity to make its mark on the city with designs such as the aforementioned Moore Street Substation and a series of less muscular but still elegantly nonsense-free developments such as a cinema and entertainment complex on Pond Street (known to subsequent generations of Sheffielders as the Fiesta, Roxy or o2). These developments were the catalyst to enable the practice to spread its wings, designing buildings the length of the country and overseas, firmly placing it on the architectural world stage. 167

Electric Works Opened in 2009, Electric Works is the landmark of the first phase in the currently evolving Sheffield Digital Campus – a £110 million development opposite Sheffield station which, once complete, will be one of Europe’s most technologically advanced business sites. The unique, ultra-modern office and events space has quickly become home to a lively hub of creative, digital, IT and multimedia companies, including cloud computing company WANdisco, architecture and design practice Six AD, and arts education not-forprofit CapeUK. Offering hot-desking, short-term project office hire and a range of flexible spaces, it has something to suit the small startup and the large-scale organisation alike. And if that wasn’t enough to put smiles on its tenants’ faces, Electric Works is also home to a huge, three-story helter-skelter, sliding from the top floor to the reception.

十九世纪,谢菲尔德的工人令这座城市 名扬四海,他们率先发展钢铁行业,改 变了整个世界。 近几十年来,重工业走向衰落,但这座 城市的众多劳动者依然保持技术创新传 统。 谢菲尔德因前沿企业所享有的卓著声誉 仍在继续塑造其变革经济领域中的众多 组成部分。



市中心拥有数以千计的公立与私营企业。 其中多家企业处于专业、科学和技术行业,创意和数字产业 自上世纪80年代以来也一直呈蓬勃发展之势。 谢菲尔德的创意产业集中在市中心,创造出由不同规模的新 兴及创业企业组成的活力社区。 电气工程(Electric Works)是谢菲尔德最具活力的创新中心之 一。 这座现代化办公楼于2009年投入使用,是正在发展的谢菲尔 德数字园区一期工程的地标,该工程全面完工后将成为欧洲 技术最先进的商业园区之一。 它还拥有一座从顶楼直通大厅的螺旋滑梯。



工作站(Workstation)是文化产业区的创意与数字业的旗舰商 业中心。 工作站与隔壁的独立Showroom影院相连,堪称电影制作公 司、电影节以及其他电影相关组织的理想家园。 工作站的其他租户包括应用开发商、剧团、设计工作室,以 及谢菲尔德社区电视和广播电台。 谢菲尔德科技园毗邻谢菲尔德火车站、Millennium Gallery 和Tamper,拥有得天独厚的优越位置。 这个非营利专业IT与技术商业中心是创业型企业的大本营, 租户包括软件公司、应用程序开发人员和独立唱片公司。 城市中心独具特色,坐拥四通八达的铁路与公路网络,吸引 全球和国内公司纷至沓来。 DLA Piper、Mott MacDonald、Ove Arup、Sky和Zoo Digital等公司都在谢菲尔德开展投资,成为与独立商业社区 和谐共存的大型雇主。 所有这一切共同创造出生气勃勃、活力四射的城市中心,作 为城市中心的发展动力,具有创意和创新精神的劳动者正在 这里享受着美好的工作、社交与生活。



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 initiative is Alive After 5, 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.

By bus

By coach 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.

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.

On foot

By road

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!

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. Coming from the M1, park at Nunnery Square or Meadowhall, or from the west park at Middlewood, and catch the Supertram into the centre.

By air 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. 188
