The Library Theatre, Sheffield

The Library Theatre, the usual venue for our performances, is part of the Central Library building on Surrey Street. The entrance is at the back of the building on Tudor Square next to the Lyceum Theatre (underneath the "organ pipes"). The theatre is used by a number of amateur groups on a regular basis and seats 260. It is in "Art Deco" style, with a comfortable intimate auditorium and traditional proscenium stage. There is a small foyer bar open before performances and during intervals, together with cloakroom facilities.

On the advice of South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service wheelchair access to the Library Theatre is no longer available.

If you have any other mobility problems and are unsure whether you would be able to access the venue please contact:
