one of the theatre shows you won't to miss in 2019

BBC on Standing at the Sky’s Edge

World Première

Friday 15 March - Saturday 6 April 2019

Tonight the streets are ours

In 1961, the first residents of Park Hill were given the keys to their new homes. With music by Richard Hawley, Standing at the Sky’s Edge tells their story over the next 50 years, in a heart-swelling, heart-breaking love song to Sheffield.

Named as one of 'the theatre shows you won't want to miss in 2019' by the BBC and as one of the 'musicals not to miss' by WhatsOnStage.

Celebrate with us on Thu 28 March
We’re holding a special post-show party to raise vital funds to support our work with children and young people in Sheffield. From £75.00 (includes a ticket to the performance). Please contact the Box Office for more details.
