Crucible Theatre visit - Kiss Me Kate - 9th Jan. 2019

From the Golden Age, a riotous, romantic musical comedy to make your heart soar.

It's opening night for feuding divorcees Fred and Lilli as they star in The Taming of the Shrew. But as the curtain rises, gambling, gangsters and mistaken identity conspire to create chaos.

The Cambridge Society Sheffield has reserved 50 seats for an evening performance, on Wednesday 9th January 2019.

We have arranged an optional 'hot buffet' in the Adelphi Room at 6pm for those who would like an informal meal before the show.

There will also be a cash bar in the Adelphi Room during the interval and members who do not book the buffet will be welcome to buy their interval drinks there in order to meet friends and avoid the crush at the public bars.

We have sold out of theatre tickets but you are welcome to source your own and join us in the Adelphi room at the interval for drinks, and/or for a hot buffet at 6.00pm before the show. The cost of the buffet is £16.50 per person. You need to let us know by 18 Dec, by emailing cambridgesocietysheffield@gmail.com, if you want to join us for interval drinks or the buffet.

Informal Drinks - The Florentine - 7:30pm 28th Jan. 2019

We are having an informal gathering at The Florentine, Tapton Park Road, Sheffield, S10 3FG.

All welcome - no need to book, but if you get a chance, please email cambridgesocietysheffield@gmail.com to say you are thinking of coming along.

Note that The Florentine does excellent food if people want to dine beforehand.

Annual Dinner and talk - 'The North-South Divide at Cambridge' - 22nd Feb. 2019

This year our annual dinner is at Halifax Hall, a Victorian period mansion in Sheffield, formerly a Victorian steel baron's mansion and subsequently a University hall of residence, recently transformed into a hotel.

Our after-dinner speaker is Paul Coupar and he will be talking about the work of the Linacre Institute to help make Cambridge University more accessible to students from the North.

Come along and join us for what promises to be an excellent meal and fascinating talk.
