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


Concerteenies is a live music concert series based in Sheffield, bringing all kinds of musical joy to children – and their grown-ups!

Organised, and sometimes performed, by Polly Ives, concerts are designed to engage young children (0-5 years) in live, high quality music in a relaxed and friendly environment. They're performed by inspirational professional musicians – playing an eclectic mix of classical, contemporary, pop, folk and jazz with informal introductions to the music and sensory activities to enhance the experience (think bubbles, puppets and percussion).

During lockdown, Concerteenies is producing online Home Concerts in place of its usual live events, as well as a series of activities for you to try out at home. See highlights below, and follow Concerteenies on Youtube for more.
