Businesses urged to get involved with Classical Weekend

Classical Takeover in Sheffield this March!

Classical Weekend is returning to Sheffield for its third year in March for a jam-packed weekend of world-premieres, hands-on workshops and free performances.

The 2017 festival attracted 7,000 people to events across the city and contributed more than £60,000 to the local economy. This led to a successful application to Arts Council England for funding to make the 2019 festival even bigger. Now, we're asking businesses to make the most of this by creating special offers and special promotions for pass and ticket holders.

The Weekend, hosted at venues across Sheffield from 8 – 10 March will feature activities taking place in the city centre, at venues in the university and at Kelham Island Museum. It will also include a number of free pop-up events at Winter Gardens. With day and weekend passes at only £20 and £30 respectively and all individual event tickets only £5 there will be hundreds of people in the city looking for places to eat lunch and dinner as well as grab a drink.

By offering a discount for ticket and pass holders, businesses could really capitalise on this celebrated festival, explained Festival Producer Stewart Campbell. Offers could even encourage more people to buy tickets which would contribute to ensuring the sustainability of classical music making here in Sheffield.

The weekend festival will include ten world premieres as well as featuring over 30 free performances and four hands-on workshops. Classical Sheffield is happy to promote any special offers for the festival on its social media and mailing list. Businesses keen to take part are invited to email to arrange promotion of the offer via the Classical Sheffield channels.
