Getting to, and around the Mini Zine Fest

Getting there

Bank Street Arts is in the city centre, and fairly close to Cathedral and Castle Square tram stops. The easiest route from the train station is to take the tram from the back of the station to Castle Square. Trams are only running in one direction at the moment due to works on the rails so you can’t go wrong! It’s two stops to Castle Square and costs £1.50, trams in Sheffield also accept the national concession bus passes. If you’re driving, there’s an NCP car park directly opposite.

The address of the venue is 32-40 Bank Street, Sheffield, S1 2DS. From Castle Square, cross to the opposite platform and head down Angel Street past Argos and turn left between the Premier Inn and the Boardwalk. You’re on Bank Street! It’s a little up on the right. You can also walk down from the Cathedral but that’s probably best if you know the area. There are also bus stops nearby, mostly on Angel St, High St, Arundel Gate, Waingate and Haymarket, and there is a good journey planner at


Getting around the building

Bank Street Arts itself is a privately owned and old building, and has no lift. From the main floor to the galleries there are 7 steps with handrails, and to the basement level there are 6 steps. The zine fest and workshops will be on the lower level, in the cafe and education rooms, with steps down.

Unfortunately, there are no allocated quiet spaces. The building has a lot of rooms and areas which may be suitable if needed but we have not been able to guarantee a definite space.
