Sheffield has fantastic programme of vibrant events and festivals year-round, from international sporting fixtures and summer music festivals to world-renowned theatre and exhibitions.

Like major events across the world, a lot of these have been put on hold throughout 2020, but our Autumn events and festivals are now getting going again, with a mixture of live and online programmes for audiences to enjoy.

Our normally comprehensive event listings may still be a little thin on the ground for the time being, but we’ll continue to highlight the city’s foremost events here on this page. We’ll soon be able to list a full calendar of exciting things to watch out for in 2021, but in the meantime check out the latest announcements by following @VisitSheffield across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Keeping Sheffield's culture open

Sheffield Culture Hub is a collective of the city’s arts and culture festivals, venues and organisations. They’ve come together to keep culture open online and help the arts community stay strong in Sheffield during lockdown. Brought to you by the University of Sheffield, Our Favourite Places and Sheffield City Council.
