With the days being at their longest, why not make use of the extra day light to catch some great live shows. Here are our top five shows to see in Sheffield this June in date order:
Very Big Improv Party – 1 June, Hagglers Corner
What better way to kick off June than by spending an evening with Long Boi and the Noise who promise you that there ain’t no party like an improv party as they conga-line into the ultimate combination of improvised comedy entertainment and party magic, including a host games, giggles and great prizes.

Martha Reeves & The Vandellas – 4 June, Sheffield O2 Academy
In the 60th anniversary year of the formation of Motown Records, it’s only right to continue the June party by escaping the Heatwave and Dancing in the Streets, well at the O2 Academy, with these Motown sensations.

Kinky Boots – 10 to 22 June, Lyceum Theatre
We love the film and love the theatre show so much that we saw it in the West End, so can’t wait for this fabulous, feel good, footwear musical based on the true tale of a Northampton shoe factory and featuring original songs by the ever-fabulous Cyndi Lauper, to come to Sheffield.

Cyrano & Roxanne – 12 to 15 June, Sheffield University Drama Studio

The Wind & The Willows – 19 to 22 June, Montgomery Theatre
Whether you love the classic children’s book (and who doesn’t), musicals or the work of Downtown Abbey writer Julian Fellows, this new musical is for you, as you gloriously escape the summer heat in the company of Rat, Mole, Badger and, not forgetting, Toad.
