A truly brilliant production at a wonderful theatre. Love the open feel to it and loads more leg room than many similar auditoriums. Love The Crucible!

we went to the crucible theatre because we felt like something different and certainly got it with the York realist production, if this is the standard that is the norm, would not hesitate in going again

Crucible theatre is just in the centre of city. It is a minute walk from Peace gardens and couple of minutes walk from the Sheffield station.

We have visited many times. For any play or musical you get a good view and due to the proximity to the actors you feel really involved in the action. Great place to go to the theatre

Response from SheffieldTheatres | Property representative |
Unfortunately, we don't have a snooker museum at the Crucible. When the tournament is with us there are snooker related events in the Winter Gardens if you are able to get to any of those during the run of the tournament
