New to classical concerts in Sheffield?

Sheffield is a very friendly city and classical concert-going tends to be easy and relaxed. Wear anything that you feel comfortable in. Some people dress up because they are attending the concert as a special celebration; others go in jeans and T-shirt – anything goes! However, to make sure everyone has a great evening, please

  • turn your mobile phone completely off before the concert begins
  • don’t video or record any part of the performance
  • don’t smoke anywhere in the building
  • arrive in good time; if you are late you may have to wait outside the hall for a while to make sure audience members aren’t disturbed, so you might miss part of the concert.

Before each concert  at the City Hall (except the Christmas carol concerts), BBC Broadcaster Trisha Cooper invites the conductor, soloist, or musicians connected with the concert to chat about their lives and music. This informal talk offers a delightful look behind the scenes at the professional and private passions of the performers, with a chance for the audience to ask questions.

There is usually a fifteen or twenty minute interval about half way through the concert, and there is a programme that provides lots of information about the music and the performers.
