Dates for our Classical Weekend 2019 Announced!


We’re thrilled to announce the return of Classical Weekend. The festival, now in its third year, will run from 8 to 10 March. It will see more than 50 of the city’s music groups joined by performers from across the world to host a huge range of performances and workshops in venues across Sheffield.

For the first time, the weekend has been programmed around three themes: Women in Music, to celebrate International Women’s Day which falls on the same weekend, Future Makers, to celebrate the wealth of young musicians in the city and Beyond Borders, which celebrates both the fusion of classical music with other artforms and different world cultures.

With the programme to be announced in coming months, venues such as Winter Gardens, Kelham Island and Industrial Museum, Sheffield Cathedral, Sheffield City Hall and Burton Road have been confirmed. Programmed by our Producer, Stewart Campbell, they will host concerts and workshops for families, young people and classical music lovers alike with all performances lasting under an hour, many of which are free.

Our simple price structure will make it easy to navigate what’s on with all tickets priced at £5 and a weekend pass just £30.

Producer, Stewart said:

Classical Sheffield is dedicated to making more music, in more places with more people. We’re proud that in 2017 20% of our audiences had never attended a classical music concert before. The charity has come a long way in proving that classical music really can offer something for everyone and 2019 promises to bring more extraordinary talent from our city to more settings and in lots of creative ways.

Over 7,000 people attended events during the Weekend in 2017, contributing over £60,000 to the city’s economy.

Passes for Classical Weekend will go on sale in November. Tickets for individual events will go on sale in January. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@ClassicalSheff) to stay up to date.
