We invite you to come along to our Urban Room to share your ideas for the new public space to be built on the Castle site, and for the future of Castlegate more widely.

The new public space will open up access to the River Sheaf, provide spaces for arts and community events, and reveal the rich heritage of the area, including the remains of the Castle. It should be a place for people from all over Sheffield of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to feel connected to each other and to their city’s history – where everyone can feel welcome. It is hoped that this will catalyse further regeneration of Castlegate that places people, heritage and the environment at its heart.

Click below to sign up to events in the Urban Room, including presentations of the proposed design for a new public space on the Castle site by Sheffield City Council, tours by Friends of Sheffield Castle and Sheaf & Porter Rivers Trust, and workshops on specific aspects of Castlegate regeneration:

Live Works is working in partnership with Sheffield City Council and the Castlegate Partnership, a collaboration with local community groups, universities, charities, arts organisations and independent businesses. We are facilitating the engagement of stakeholders and local people in the future of the Castle site and Castlegate more widely. The Urban Room will host a programme of exhibitions, discussions, tours and activities to engage people in the past, present and future of this extraordinary part of our city.

This co-production process is funded by the University of Sheffield as part of its Made Together programme.
