Support Us

You can help us deliver the very best music, film and associated activities in the heart of Sheffield. As a small organisation working towards becoming a charity in 2021, we rely on your generous support. Money raised will increase access for new artists to take to the stage and showcase their work. It will also help us provide  work experience for new talent including our ‘Young Bookers’ scheme.

Sensoria has a reputation for exciting, one-off and unmissable events. We commission, showcase and celebrate innovative new work and independent talent for audiences and industry world wide. We also bring together highly skilled, creative professionals to deliver eclectic and engaging industry events that inspire, inform and entertain. 

We welcome a broad mix of people – 38% of audiences visiting Sensoria in 2018 were first timers increasing to 47% in 2019. 2018-2020 programme impacts include:

  • 30 events on average p.a. including performances / screenings / exhibitions that audiences would not otherwise enjoy the opportunity to experience.
  • 8,000+ admissions to Sheffield venues and public outdoor events.
  • Working with community partners including Ignite Imagniations and Age Better to help tackle social isolation.
  • Supporting our hospitality and tourism sector, employment for young people and freelance workers.
  • Putting Sheffield on the map for its music and cultural offer through both real life and web-based projects.

 A one-off gift, however small, or a monthly donation will ensure a legacy for the future continuation of the festival. 

Thank you.
