Meeting Room in the Hall  -
Available for Freemen and Friends

.In response to a request by the Freemen’s Committee,  a room in the Cutlers’ Hall has been set aside for use by Freemen and Friends.  This is  the Scholey Room, a small room in the Hallamshire Suite on the 2nd Floor near to the Company Offices.

Tea and Coffee is available as is the wireless internet.



If you find yourself in Sheffield or have somebody you wish to meet in town, why not come to the Cutlers’ Hall rather than a coffee shop.  When you come into the Hall, tell the Beadle that you are a Freeman or Friend,  then take the lift to the second floor.


It would be appreciated if you would ‘drop’ into the Company Office, just to say that you are using the facility. 

* The Scholey Room is one of three rooms which make up the Hallamshire Suite and are named after benefactors to the Company.  The Scholey Room is named after Sir Robert Scholey; the other two being named after Sir John Osborne and Sir Stuart Goodwin.
