Following the eviction from its Eyre Street home earlier this year, we’re pleased that Sheffield Theatre Delicatessen has found a new home and is set to reopen in spring 2023.

Occupying venues across London and Sheffield, the Theatre Deli has been a driving force in contemporary arts for 14 years – always supporting those artists and companies whose work sits outside the boundaries of traditional theatre.

Throughout its 14-year history, Theatre Deli has occupied a number of city centre venues in London and Sheffield that would otherwise have stood empty.

Following the venue’s initial conception in London in 2008, Theatre Deli came to Sheffield in 2014. After occupying the old Woolworths building on The Moor, Theatre Deli moved into its Eyre Street base – with the brilliant Sheffield-based Forced Entertainment first to perform when it opened in 2017.

Now, 2023 marks the start of a new era for this beacon of ambitious avant-garde theatre. The new Sheffield Theatre Deli will be situated in Cuthbert House on Arley Street, which is already home to a collection of artist studios run by Sheffield-based arts charity CADS. Key Fund have awarded the Theatre Deli a mixed grant and loan of £150,000 over a ten-year period to help refurbish the new Sheffield venue. So far plans include rehearsal studios with custom-built dance floors, a 100-capacity performance space and a bar and cafe, as well as an open office area for hot desking.

The new venue will be decorated by Yorkshire-based artist Nicole-Rose Munhawa, who recently designed the Theatre Deli’s new City of London venue. Just a short walk away from the bustle of London Road and the New Era Square area of Sheffield, Theatre Deli will be in good company – with Treehouse Boardgame Cafe and Golf Fang close by.

With a strong focus on new talent and experimental performance, and a supportive network of promising theatre-makers, writers and artists, we’re looking forward to the relaunch of Theatre Deli Sheffield.
