Please wear sensible shoes when visiting the Works!




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 - see below) The Works is an unusual venue and we'd love to help you put on en event here. Facilities are improving all the time - proper toilets, warmer and dryer spaces, and still the unique atmosphere.  Do get in touch and see what we can offer.
