Sheffield International Venues (SIV), which operates concert and conference venues in the city, including City Hall, has announced a new deal with Irwin Mitchell for sponsorship of the Oval Hall until 2015.

The three-tiered Irwin Mitchell Oval Hall, which seats 2,271 people, has played host to performances by artists including Westlife, Morrissey and Ronan Keating.

It has also staged high profile conferences and events such as the Liberal Democrat’s Spring Conference and the National Union of Students conference. Annually, the City Hall welcomes 60,000 people for business events.
