There are a wealth of amazing and unique businesses that are proud to call Sheffield their home, for us it is exciting to be part of something that brings them all together.”

She said: “In January and February the Awards Seasons films come to the Showroom, so come and see a future Oscar winning film. We also have our annual Japanese film season and will be celebrating LGBT History Month with a series of films and events. Our Café Bar serves a range of dishes from brunches and light bites to evening meals, we run a special Take Two deal which combines a film and food for two people, and we host regular bread making workshops.”
