When it comes to arts & entertainment, we tend to overlook how many great places there are in Sheffield!
All too easily, we fall into patterns of behaviour. When we go to the cinema, we go to our usual cinema. When we go to the theatre, we go to our usual theatre. Same with live music venues. Same with late-night venues. Same even with the museums and galleries we visit!
We all need a little inspiration from time to time, and some good recommendations, but who to ask?! The people of Sheffield of course! While one person or a group of people may have a particular bias for a particular place… Ask enough Sheffielders, and a more complex picture emerges, one that reveals those most-loved venues!
It was this interest in the thoughts and feelings of the people of Sheffield that led us to create the Social Sheffield Awards, so the people of Sheffield could vote for their picks of the best, so we could bring together the local knowledge of 1000s of people, and so we could share that knowledge with the city’s residents, students and visitors.
And that’s exactly what we’re doing! When all the votes are in, we’ll take up to 10 venues from each awards category – those which receive the most votes – and we’ll share them in the form of a new Sheffield Going Out Guide… And we’ll give a free e-copy to everyone who votes.
If you’ve not yet voted, if you’re colleagues have not yet voted, if you’re friends, family, and followers have not yet voted… There’s still time! Click here to cast your votes or share this link with those who regularly go out in the city!
Below are a series of images showing which venues 4 WEEKS IN, WITH 4 WEEKS TO GO are getting the most votes in each of the Social Sheffield Awards categories. If you would like to share any of these images with your friends or followers, please feel free to do so.
