11th September 2023

Refurbishment and latest line-up at popular Sheffield city-centre destination

Orchard Square in the heart of Sheffield has revealed a new look this month, 35 years on from first opening in 1987, marking the start of a new era for the city centre’s open-air Square and occupants.

This month sees the completion of extensive refurbishment work within the Square, including new and improved paving throughout - plus the installation of awnings and a central canopy to provide this popular destination with a dedicated and weatherproof event space.

Commenting on the works, Orchard Square Manager Shay Murray said:

“We are delighted to be unveiling the Square’s updated look following our futureproofing, refurbishment programme.

“The updated Square now offers our tenants and customers a more modern look and feel, alongside covered outdoor spaces, which has long been asked for and will be used for city centre events and gatherings - providing even more reasons for people to visit.”

Alongside the refurbishment, the Square now boasts a line-up of new tenants including,  The Old Shoe, the much-anticipated city centre bar, offering one of the UK’s most diverse drinks list with a rotating selection of 20 draft lines, a huge range of ciders including products made on site, plus a vast and varied array of wines.

Award-winning, authentic Neapolitan pizza restaurant, Proove has also recently opened its doors in the Square, a place where customers can enjoy some of the finest pizza in town, alongside an array of drinks and cocktails from their premium bar.

And coming soon to the Square is Game Show All-Stars, from the owners of Sheffield’s Great Escape Rooms. Opening in September - this one is not to be missed!

The latest openings form part of Orchard Square’s diverse choice of food, drink, entertainment and retail outlets including, TK Maxx, Waterstones, Sheffield Plate independent food hall, Terrace Goods, Body Shop - and many more.

Shay continues;

“We are proud to offer a vibrant community hub in the heart of Sheffield’s city centre for today’s visitors to relax, eat, drink and shop - and look forward to welcoming old and new customers alike over the coming weeks and months.

“This is an exciting time for Sheffield city centre generally, given various current regeneration work. Orchard Square is thrilled to be part of that programme – and pioneering this new era for our city. If you haven’t been to Orchard Square recently, we can’t wait to welcome you back.”

Alongside the refurbishment programme, Orchard Square has also unveiled its new branding; bringing signage, directory boards and the soon-to-be new website, in line with the updated look and feel.
