The Montgomery

Named after 19th-century hymn writer James Montgomery, "the Monty" still retains a Christian ethos, whilst also putting on a theatre programme aimed at "inspiring Sheffield's generations to wonder".

Crucible Theatre

The Crucible is a very modern theatre. Outside, its colourful facade keeps Tudor Square well-lit by night, whilst inside it boasts a polygonal shape and thrust stage. Its programme is well known for seasons dedicated to 20th-century playwrights.

Lantern Theatre

Sheffield's oldest and smallest (and most utterly charming) theatre is tucked away in the leafy suburb of Nether Edge. Go see anything you can here, even if it's just to get a peek inside.
