A festival named after a track by Sheffield synth pioneers Cabaret Voltaire? You know you’re onto a winner with Sensoria right away.

Sensoria is Sheffield's festival of film, music and digital art. Since it started out in 2008, Sensoria has projected films in places we’d never have thought would make for cinemas – The Big Blue at Hathersage lido, Threads on the hill above Sheffield station, Metropolis with a live soundtrack by Factory Floor in a steel mill turned museum. It's staged bands and installations in buildings we'd thought were beyond use. And Sensoria isn’t just skilled at location scouting; it's hosted some of the most memorable music of recent years in Sheffield, bringing to town the likes of Laurie Anderson, Bo Ningen, Michael Rother, and a roving Richard Hawley, John Grant and Bill Ryder-Jones triple bill.

Come back soon for news of Sensoria's 2018 programme.
