The Crucible is an iconic Sheffield landmark. This modern theatre is home to world-class productions made right here in Sheffield. For Front End North we’ll be taking over the main auditorium so you’ll get to experience the epic stage which is surrounded by seats on three sides, so you’re never more than 20 metres from the action.

Snooker fans will already know the Crucible well as it’s home to the annual Snooker World Championship every spring.


The Crucible has level access points, ramps, lifts and accessible toilets available. Assistance dogs are welcome. You can take your dog into the auditorium or you can use our dog sitting service. Bowls of water are available if required. Please advise us of your needs at the time of booking.

We offer an infra-red Sennheiser transmission system to relay sound to customers who are hard of hearing and headsets and neck loops are available free of charge from our front of house staff.
