Portland Works hosts regular open days where, as well as seeing the building, there are usually a good number of our 30+ craftspeople that turn out for visitors. Many will have a stall where you can see their products in a craft fair atmosphere. Details of our next open day will appear on this page as soon as they are announced. To get advanced notice of this, please sign up to our newsletter by contacting us.
On the first Tuesday of each month, you can visit by arrangement, normally at 2pm. This is a tour of the building rather than an open day, so we cannot guarantee which tenants will be on-site or which doors will be open, but there’s always plenty to see. It’s also the day the volunteers are renovating things so you can meet us and see what we’re up to. A donation is welcome as a gesture of support and we suggest £4 per person.
You need to book by noon on the day before – please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0114 275 9354
Commercial and Educational Visits
The Works is a unique venue and we’d love to help you put on en event here. We have held some spectacular events at the Works and it can provide a great backdrop for photography. Our facilities are improving all the time so please visit the Hire page and get in touch to see what we can offer
We have also had some brilliant partnerships with both of Sheffield’s universities. The Works offer great opportunities for architects, planners, historians or journalists and 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 but we’re hoping to change this in 2017 as we build better visitor facilities.
