Top five shows to see in Sheffield this October
We can’t believe it’s October already, but the month isn’t all about Halloween and hibernation. Here’s our top five shows to see in Sheffield this October, in date order:
Grace Petrie – 12 October, Leadmill
A talented singer songwriter from my hometown of Leicester, who is also responsible for my favourite song about the birth of a new baby. Find out why the likes of Billy Bragg and Josie Long have chosen her as a support act and her album Queer As Folk was named one of the top 10 folk albums of 2018 by Mojo magazine. Tickets are £12.

A Chorus of Disapproval – 15 to 19 October, Sheffield Library Theatre

Dave Gorman: With Great Powerpoint Comes Great Responsibility – 16 October, Sheffield City Hall
We saw this in show in Hull earlier this year (a Christmas present from my other half) and it was one of the most hilarious evenings of stand up we have seen. As anyone who has been in the audience for a Dave Gorman gig before, you know we cannot share any of the contents, but expect laugh out loud comedy, cleverly designed powerpoints and the funniest giraffe joke you will ever hear. Tickets are £32.75. For further information and to book visit www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk.
Little Shop of Horrors – 22 to 26 October, Theatre Delicatessen
Not only the perfect musical in the run up to Halloween but one of our favourite musicals and theatre comedies of all time by one of the best musical theatre companies in Sheffield.
