OFFSET SHEFFIELD 2016
The Crucible Theatre more well known as the home of professional snooker, will be our home for what will be our 10th OFFSET this October 21st- 22nd.
OFFSET will be part of the Sheffield Catalyst Festival of Creativity (running until November) as well as a key element in Sheffield’s Design Week (22nd – 30th October 2016).
Both have an exciting and varied programme, including exhibitions, workshops, talks, design conferences, installations, product launches, open studios and walking trails joining together venues across Sheffield.
Our lineup is looking pretty stellar with the Legendary Graphic Designer & Typographer Wolfgang Weingart, Award Winning UK Illustrator Laura Carlin, Design Director of the LEGO Star Wars Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, Director, Thinker and Maker Aaron Duffy, ADC Young Gun winner Shane Griffin, Anita Murphy & Rory O'Connor of the Award Winning Company The Creativity Hub, one of the best known Creative Directors in Fashion and Beauty Alan Aboud, Designer & Art Director Marta Veludo, Global Leaders in VFX MPC, Award Winning Illustrator and Designer Steve Simpson, Founder of The Designers Republic (tDR) Ian Anderson, “The Germans" Felix Richter and Alexander Nowak from global advertising agency Droga5, Dirk Laucke and Johanna Siebein from Studio Laucke Siebein, designers & brothers Luke Powell and Jody Hudson-Powell of Pentagram and one of worlds leading creative studio Moving Brands
More speakers announced soon.
The second stage powered by Squarespace is a more intimate setting for one on one interviews, panel discussions and debates and will feature talks from Morag Myserscough, Andy Altman, Andy Stevens, Pip Jamieson, MPC and Aaron Duffy.
So join us at the second stage (at the Adelphi Room) for an opportunity to dig a bit deeper, explore a bit further and get that little bit closer to our stellar line-up of speakers. The full programme is to be announced in a few weeks but you can be sure that will be a distinct Sheffield feel to it.
Sheffield Theatres work in partnership with Q-Park to provide safe and secure parking in Q-Park’s Charles Street car park, located on Arundel Gate. Q-Park Charles Street is a multi-storey car park, offering 530 parking spaces as well as disabled and parent and toddler bays. The car park has secure entry gates and is fitted with bright lighting and CCTV cameras.

5-10 minutes walk from the train station and the transport interchange nearby. Leave the train station, cross the road and walk straight up Howard Street, by Sheffield Hallam University. Cross over Arundel Gate at the pedestrian crossing and Millennium Galleries is in front of you. Walk up the obvious ramp to the right of the gallery entrance and continue along Surrey Street until Tudor Square and The Crucible will appear on your right.
