Let’s be honest: being a theatregoer certainly isn’t the most affordable hobby in the world, particularly as a disabled young person. Whilst there ARE affordable shows and tickets out there these days (which quite frankly is a blessing), we mustn’t skirt around the fact that the stagey life can leave you rather out of pocket.

Whilst I’m no Martin Lewis Money Saving Expert, over time I’ve discovered a few tips and tricks that help make my savings go further. I should probably point out that I’m putting my blogging/reviewing shenanigans aside here, where I receive complementary press tickets in return for reviews: only the shows I choose to spend my own hard-earned cash on.

When my mum found out I would be seeing Sheffield Theatres’ Standing At The Sky’s Edge, she got me in the car and drove us to the Park Hill flats. She wanted me to see them properly for myself, and for me to stand on ‘Sky Edge’, looking out over Sheffield, just as she and her friends did when they were younger.

I had no idea that my immediate family and the generations before it had such a personal connection to the Park Hill flats, but it’s safe to say we’re not the only ones: the entire population of Sheffield knows something about them and their history. You could argue that it was only a matter of time before they became the subject of something bigger, and Sheffield Theatres did it absolutely beautifully.
