1 city, 7 years, hundreds of members, and the best creative community!
It is with great sadness, but equal amounts of pride in what has been achieved, that Sheffield Creative Guild has come to an end.
The difficult but important decision was made by the Board in consultation with Sheffield Culture Consortium and with the agreement of 99%* of Members that from 19th August 2022, the Guild will cease trading. Our teams and our community of members have achieved so much over the 7 years and it is now time to watch that community grow in new ways.

Thank you to each and every one of our Members and to our city of Sheffield, it’s been a blast!
“The Guild has been great for the city – we were trailblazers in setting it up – the legacy of skills and relationships will surely remain.” – Rebecca Maddox, Culture Consortium and Sheffield City Council
What's still available?
Our directory of creatives and freelancers will remain in its current format until the closure of our website, however we will be creating a downloadable Legacy Directory Document that will be available from our legacy webpage and via the Culture Consortium’s website.
