To ensure the health and safety of our staff and artists during the current lockdown, we have adapted and rescheduled our programme. The Band Plays On will now be made available to watch on-line.
We will be in touch with customers who have a booking that’s affected by these changes. As a registered charity, we appreciate any support that you can offer as we continue to navigate the financial challenges of this period.
"Rubbish", that was mum's verdict. "Drop a nuke round here and no-one would even notice the difference."
An Olympic hopeful. A political car crash. The fallout from a fictional nuclear winter. Join us for stories of solidarity and survival from the Steel City, sound tracked by new versions of classics from some of Sheffield's most celebrated artists.
From the team that brought you Standing at the Sky’s Edge, The Band Plays On is a rousing night of extraordinary tales and live music. Funny, moving and often unexpected, these episodes from our past might start to show us a way forward.
