Top five shows to see in Sheffield this February
Whether you are looking for an alternative to your usual Valentines Day or a night off from hibernating inside, these are our top five shows to see in Sheffield this February in date order.
Apologies in advance, we are aware that Sheffield based musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie is returning to the Lyceum from 8 to 29 February, but we presumed everyone else would be talking about it so we did not need to.
The Southmartins – 8 February, O2 Academy
With the new Jackie Abbott and Paul Heaton album released in March and their forthcoming tour sadly not coming to Sheffield, this is your opportunity not to miss out on the rest of Paul Heaton’s back catalogue performed live by one of the country’s best tribute acts.

Josie Long: Tender – 9 February, Leadmill
We were delighted to interview Josie Long about this show, ahead of her debuting it at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe (read the interview here) so were even more excited when we heard she was bringing the show to Sheffield. In Josie’s own words “My show is about the fact that last year I had a little baby and I am trying to welcome her to the world while everything around me is telling me it’s the end of the world.” For further information and to book visit www.leadmill.co.uk/event/josie-long/
Blithe Spirit – 11 to 15 February, Ecclesall Parish Hall
Our favourite Noel Coward play is being performed by a company with an over 80 year tradition of bringing classic theatrical comedy to the stage. Plus as at its heart it’s about marriage it’s perfect timing for those who like their relationships served up with laughter. For further information and to book visit www.ecclesalltheatre.co.uk/
Daria Kulesh – 14 February, Cafe #9
One of the first folk singers my boyfriend ever introduced to me, I have been a massive fan of hers ever since and can’t think of a better way to spend the most romantic evening of the year than listening to her breathtakingly beautiful and enchanting performance, inspired by her Russian and Ingush roots.

Frankenstein – 19 to 22 February, Sheffield University Drama Studio
Returning to the subject of classics, we are looking forward to Midland Players bringing this classic horror story to life and can’t wait to see the performer who takes on the monster’s role, a character we have always had great sympathy for.
