Company description
The Montgomery is an historic, yet forward thinking, multi-purpose venue based in the heart of Sheffield City Centre. We specialise in children's and family programming, serving the city region's thriving faith and arts communities. We showcase many of Sheffield's local performing arts groups, as well as a programme of professional performances especially for families. In addition, we serve and resource our over 100 faith partners (inter-denominational churches and invidiuals) across the region, by providing educational and creative materials. Our historic venue boasts a 420-seat Theatre, a flexible Studio Theatre (seats approx 70), and 3 rehearsal/exhibition/workshop spaces.
