Make Yourself at Home and Rediscover Sheffield this Spring 

Sheffield’s fantastic businesses have been working really hard for re-opening this Spring and many more are getting excited to welcome you back in the Summer.

This page is a collection of stories and updates showcasing what they have to offer, along with the great things to look forward to and inspiration ideas for rediscovering your city. We’ll also be sharing more positive community stories about the everyday heroes and organisations, who’ve been putting in the extra effort to make Sheffield feel like home again.

If you have a story you’d like to share, please get in touch with us at or tag us in your posts @VisitSheffield #SheffieldMakes.

The trail will begin in July 2021 with 60 2-metre tall bears, sponsored by local businesses, organisations and families.

The new programme is set to explore the merging of digital and physical realities through immersive online exhibitions, discussions, family workshops, reading groups, screenings and more.

A safe cinema experience to enjoy with your bubble, The Village Screen will be bringing an epic cinematic line up of retro films and more modern releases to the beautiful grounds of Gulliver’s Valley 14-25 April.

As days are getting warmer/brighter with the arrival of spring, it’s a great time to meet up with friends and family outside. We’ve rounded some suggestions for city strolls you can combine with grabbing a takeout brew or an iced beverage.

Here in Sheffield we are all incredibly lucky to be able to easily get to amazing green spaces and the outdoors – which is what has given us the nickname ‘The Outdoor City’.

Shopping in a hurry? Then a voucher or gift card for a Sheffield experience might be the answer. Lots of local businesses and city attractions have created online vouchers for when things become a little more normal again. 

Lots of Sheffield’s indie retailers have been working really hard to make sure you can shop their unique wares from the comfort of your own home.

Recent times have highlighted how valuable outdoor spaces are. That’s why it’s very important we look after these vital spaces & everyone does their bit to help. Here’s a rundown of the key things we should all remember while enjoying The Outdoor City…
