The Bank

The Bank opened in November 2019 as Sheffield Theatres' creative hub dedicated to talent development.

The Bank represents Sheffield Theatres expanding commitment to local theatre makers as well as the company’s existing Making Room network of artists and activities.

Located adjacent to the Crucible, this is a creative space for local artists and theatre makers to develop work, skills, collaborations and careers with the support of Sheffield Theatres.

The Bank is generously supported by Jo and Chris Hookway.

Robert Hastie, Artistic Director of Sheffield Theatres said:

“Our city is full of creative talent who need space and support to think, imagine and create. We’re committed to sharing the resources and expertise we have in our theatres and to creating an environment where artists can thrive.

At Sheffield Theatres we’re really keen to work with the city’s community of artists – and the artists in all Sheffield’s communities – to determine how we can best use this space. We’re starting with an offer, but we want to go forward in conversation and collaboration.

There is a long line of artists who have shaped and shared their talents in Sheffield. The city is bursting with creative energy. I can’t wait to see what the next generation of Sheffield-made talent will achieve.”
