The OEC is Set to Reopen and We Can’t Wait to Welcome You Back!

It’s been a long time coming! The OEC is preparing to welcome you back to the best live events and VIP dining experiences in Sheffield. More than just a conference centre, The OEC has quickly become the place to go for thrilling live entertainment, exquisite dining, and fabulous weddings.

We were saddened by the closure of hospitality venues last year, though we were certainly willing to do our bit to help keep the public safe. We kept ourselves busy hosting blood donations and recycling our unused Christmas brochures. With our opening date on the near horizon, we are taking bookings for a full schedule of live entertainment and private events this year – in line with government safety guidelines. We can’t wait to welcome you all back.

The big day is Monday 21st June. Make sure to mark the date in your calendar as it’s when The OEC team will reopen the doors once again!

If you’re looking for what’s on in Sheffield or the biggest and best events in Sheffield post-lockdown, The OEC is here to offer you a host of tantalising opportunities to let your hair down once again.
