The Cathedral Church of St Peter and St Paul, Sheffield, more commonly known as Sheffield Cathedral, is the cathedral church for the Church of England diocese of Sheffield, England. Originally a parish church, it was elevated to cathedral status when the diocese was created in 1914. Quote from the dean: "I am so happy the Cathedral is going to be a venue for the No Bounds Festival. This city is known for its musical talent and Cathedrals are built to showcase sounds and voices at their very best. The acoustics in this building are incredible. This Cathedral is a place 'A Place for All People' and music is a wonderful way to bring joy and laughter into our lives. I look forward to welcoming everyone to the festival later in the year."

Like Park Hill the electricity substation was built in the 60s on land recently cleared of neglected back-to-backs. And, like Park Hill, it has split public opinion ever since. It is completely iconic and we are so excited to have gained access to it for only the second time ever to house a collaborative installation by David Cotterrell & Shelly Knots entitled - God's Eve View IV - (Conflict)
