9 Things to do in Sheffield in May

What's On In Sheffield

Hurrah it's a new month (almost) Happy May everyone and welcome to the second edition of my Things to do in Sheffield feature (you can read the April feature here). I've had brilliant feedback and I'm glad you guys are loving my ideas on how to get the most out of our gorgeous city so let's get into What's On locally this May


Sheffield Amphitheatre

All Month - Kitty Barn Cafe

Location: 50 Chapel Walk, Sheffield, S1 2PD
Cost: £5 per hour
If anyone knows me you'll know just how much I love cats, I've got one furball myself called Tilly who's a beautiful ragamuffin but if I could own more I absolutely would so I was thrilled to hear about Kitty Barn Cafe opening, it's within walking distance of my work which means I'm definitely going to be paying a visit on those stressful days I need calming with some purr therapy. The Cafe is currently on a drop-in basis with bookings to follow further down the line 

All Month - Slug and Lettuce

Location: 18 Holly Street, Sheffield, S1 2GT
Cost: Free Entry
If you ever went to reflex you'll be sad to know it is no longer. I know I was as Reflex tended to be where my nights out would end, it's now been replaced by Slug and Lettuce which is a totally different kind of atmosphere but one I'm really keen to go and check out. It looks like a completely beautiful cocktail bar with food options too 

2nd May - Meadowhall Student Night

Location: Meadowhall Way, Sheffield S9 1EP
Cost: FREE
Meadowhall's yearly student event is back and bigger than ever. With 100s of discounts across many brands if you're a student you can't afford to miss it. With entertainment, offers and competitions galore it's a great time to go and stock up on a few treat yourself moments

4th May - Birdhouse Star Wars themed afternoon tea

7th May - SUFC Promotion Parade

Location: Bramall Lane Start, City Hall Finish
Cost: FREE
Somebody pinch me - I still can't believe we're going to be a premier league team next season. I'm a fan that hasn't said a lot until it was confirmed because I couldn't dare to believe. If you'd like to join in the celebrations there will be an open top bus parade from Bramall Lane culminating at the City Hall where the team will be presented to the city and their achievements celebrated

7th - 18th May - Full Monty Musical

Sheffield is the home of the Full Monty so it's quite fitting that the hugely successful touring musical has found its way home. A winner of the UK Theatre Award it promises to be heartfelt and hilarious, with a stellar cast including Gary Lucy and James Redmond et al. its sure to be another winning performance

All the fun of an old school fair including a carousel, helter-skelter and a whole host of fun, games and crafts for the whole family. Music will be present from the Victorian bandstand as you enjoy the spring sunshine with a few refreshments - definitely a must do this month

24th - 27th May - Sheffield Food Festival

The yearly Sheffield Food Festival is back and I'm salivating at just the thought of all the delicious eateries that are taking part. The food festival is a real celebration of the vibrant foodie scene we have here and the fantastic businesses, chefs, brewers and much more we have in the steel city.
