The Place

Welcome To The Lantern


The Lantern is Sheffield's oldest surviving theatre. At over 126 years old, it is a unique part of Sheffield's heritage. With only 84 seats it is an intimate and atmospheric space. 

Update Regarding Temporary Closure

Following advice from the UK government, issued on the 16 March, the Lantern is now closed until the end of June, to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). 

As you can imagine, our voluntary team are very busy working in the background. We ask that audience members bear with us as we reschedule or cancel bookings. We will shortly be in touch regarding refund information and our music hires are currently looking at move their dates to later in the year. 

We know this is disappointing for our audiences, members and volunteers. I’m sure you appreciate that the health and safety of our community is important and that this is the right decision. Please look after yourselves and support each other. 

See you all again soon.
