The Concerts team is made up of the Music Programme producer, Creative Marketing & Communications Lead, six interns from the University and our Concerts and Marketing Officers are recruited through the CAADS Scheme, learning crucial skills during their placements.
Music Programme Producer
Nick’s background is in the creative sector in Sheffield – encompassing venue management, music, Public Engagement and more. Originally moving to Sheffield in 2009 to study History at the University, Nick spent his spare time getting involved in student-run music events, and never looked back.
After an internship at The Faculty of Arts & Humanities on the In The City festival, Nick went on to do an MA in Public Humanities, later working for the City & Cultural Engagement Office. He briefly moved away from the University to run The Abbeydale Picture House, a 350 seater Grade 2 listed Art-Nouveau cinema and event space. In 2019, prior to taking on his current role, he worked on Sensoria Festival and Algomech Festival alongside freelance positions. In his spare time he is heavily involved in Sheffield’s grassroots music community and co-hosts a regular contemporary experimental radio show on Sheffield Live.

Concerts Administration Officer – Sam Garton
Sam is a current student at the University of Sheffield studying Music BMus. In his 3rd year, his main focus is on composition as both an instrumental composer and a songwriter, with his hopes being to engage audiences with the wide variety of music he makes. Sam has spent a lot of time working on various musical projects, with his work gaining radio play as well local attention and fan-bases.
Having had extensive experience as a performer, this is his first professional venture into events. Having worked in retail for the last 5 years, he felt this was the right time to use his skills for something that he is passionate about, and that he wants to develop a career from.
