At the moment Sheffield is host to the world’s largest snooker championship – 2 weeks of drama and skill played out in front of a live audience of only 1000 and making the atmosphere electric!

The iconic Crucible Theatre (Grade II listed) is 50 years old this year, in 2021. 

For the 2 week stint, I have guests in all my properties in Sheffield for the championships who have travelled from Australia, Turkey, Wales, Ireland and Suffolk- as always, I’m delighted to know that we’re providing quality accommodation and hosting to them and their friends and family on their highly anticipated trip.

Why is the Crucible in Sheffield called The Crucible?

In choosing ‘the Crucible’ as a name, not only did the theatre make the obvious allusion to the ‘melting pot’ of ideas that it aimed to become, but it also forged a bond with Sheffield’s specific history as the centre of British steel making and the eighteenth century innovation that propelled it forwards.
