The Montgomery

The Montgomery is a theatre and arts centre based in the heart of Sheffield.  We specialise in children's and family programming, promoting professional touring performances and workshops, whilst also being the performing home of many community theatre companies, dance schools and schools. Our gallery space is used to exhibit works by local community artists.

We also have a Creative Resource Library. We are the home to Storytelling With A Twist's Creative Reminiscence Collection and Godly Play.

Due to the nature of our lovely but very old building, please note that disabled access is not available at present. We are developing a long term plan to make the building more open, more accessible and better suited to the needs of today. The refurbishment of The Montgomery is a massive project and the team are working hard to complete the background work that is necessary to do before we are in a position to apply for capital funding.

Thanks to the support from The Big Lottery Fund and in partnership with Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus, The Montgomery now has a motorised stair climber installed. The stair climber gives access to audience members who can't quite make all the stairs. Use is restricted to 2 persons per show (subject to availability) and must be booked no later than one week in advance prior to your visit 0114 272 0455.
