As famous for the spotlight being on snooker balls as for hosting stars treading the boards, Sheffield's famous theatres should be on everyone's list.
The contemporary Crucible Theatre sits across Tudor Square from the decadent Lyceum Theatre creating a complex of theatrical productions which are the envy of the north. Immerse yourself in the glamour of west-end musicals or be drawn in to the drama of plays by some of the most prolific writers. Take time out with a coffee in a regular ‘meet the cast’ morning or ‘talk back’ in a Q&A session with the cast and creative teams.
It's impossible to forget that the Crucible Theatre swaps its spotlights for ‘lights, camera and action’ of the World Snooker Championships each year when 17-days of green baize frenzy takes over the place.
Sheffield is approximately 2 hours by train from London.
