Sheffield industry and steelmaking history museum situated on Kelham Island. Located in one of the city's oldest industrial districts, the museum stands on a man-made island over 900 years old. With its iconic Bessemer Converter and Europe’s largest working steam engine on display, Kelham Island Museum stands a proud reminder of the Sheffield’s industrial history and is great place to learn more about this significant heritage. No Bounds Festival has been invited to take over the whole museum for the festival which will see us using all of its spaces for performances and installations as well as its great hall for the larger musical performances over the weekend.
Hope Works was a WW1 gun barrel factory, now it’s a place of creativity and expression. It is a revolving gallery of music and visual art with an artist in residence program as well as a highly developed calendar of events. It serves as an incubator for new talent with regular plays and support given to new emerging artists from Sheffield and beyond. It was set up in association with Mixed In Sheffield in 2012 and has since endeavoured to program events which are both impactful and inspirational, embracing the local community whilst drafting in true giants of electronic music from the furthest reaches of the globe.
