Sheffield Venue


Sheffield is trying out a new venue, which sounds better than the previous one.  Sheffield captain Geoff Brown, in advising the opposing captain for their first home match on 16th October, writes:


For that match, we are going to try out a new venue, so not the Adonai Church that we've been at for the last few years.


The venue for 16th October is The Brearley Room (the Rec Room) on the Kelham Island Museum site, Alma Street, Sheffield S3 8RY.  We have free parking either in the private carpark at the side of The Fat Cat on Alma Street, or at the back of the museum itself.  In either case, we need to collect the car registration numbers prior to the match starting.  There will be tea and coffee making facilities in the playing room, with bar and food facilities in the pub (Millowners Arms) and café (Island Café) next door.  There are currently no restrictions on site re face coverings and we will have separate tables for each board.  Windows and doors can be opened, and I'll make sure there is hand sanitiser and wipes available.


This may or may not end up being a definitive venue change.
