Open days give you the opportunity to look around the building, meet some of our tenants and volunteers over refreshments. Our next open day is:
Book your tour of the Works by emailing email@example.com with your preferred time and number in your group if more than yourself. Tours start every half hour from 11 until 2.30, booking is worth doing to avoid a wait on the day.
Please wear good shoes and warm clothes!

29th June 2014 11 – 4pm
Please come along to one of our Open Days or another event taking place in the Works.
We can organise tours of the building for groups, which can also include meeting some of the makers. We ask for a donation - of £3 per head – as a gesture of support for the project.
The Works can provide a great backdrop for photography, and could be a venue for other commercial activities. Our basic rate is £40 per half day for access to the courtyard and other ‘public’ areas of the Works (i.e. not those occupied by private business).
We have had some brilliant partnership work with both of Sheffield’s universities. The Works offer great opportunities for architects, planners, historians, journalists and potentially others. We aim to make all projects rewarding both for students and for Portland Works.
Please note that in its current state the Works is unsuitable for school visits. As we carry out the renovations we hope to make some of the facilities accessible for children.
We have had some spectacular cultural events at the Works (including Pecha Kucha and Sensoria, amongst others.) If you would like to use it as a venue, then do get in touch!
