The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sean Morley

Our Favourite Places would be nothing without our contributors — a massive thanks to all of them!

Tell Us About You
I am one of the many that came to Sheffield to study and remained in the city ever since. While at University I became fascinated by live comedy, which is where my ambitions and passions lie to this day. I'm now a semi-professional comedian and producer living in Crookes.

What does Sheffield mean to you?
There's a tremendous DIY culture here. The moment you stray from the beaten track there're fascinating projects, refurbished old buildings and inspiring events. It's a city with a lot of old discarded stuff and people keep painting on it all the time.

What's your favourite Sheffield place?
The Bole Hills. Not the BMX bit though, the nice bit.

What would you do to improve the city?
A big heated dome in the centre of the city that's open 24 hours a day. There's broth on tap and everyone's encouraged to share stories from their childhood.
