The world famous Crucible Theatre is home to the World Snooker Championships as well as numerous theatre productions throughout the year.
Sheffield was without any major theatres in the 1960s when the Crucible theatre was conceptualised. Opening in 1971, it quickly became a major destination in the city.
Literally a stones throw from the now re-opened Lyceum theatre, the Crucible stands proud in Tudor Square.
The auditorium allows for viewers to sit on three sides of the stage and no-one in the whole theatre is more than 22 meters away from the performance area. All 980 seats feel intimate with the production.
The Crucible is a producing theatre, which means its shows are designed and rehearsed in-house. These productions are normally overseen by Sheffield Theatres Trust.
