Point Blank is a community organisation which delivers a wide range of arts-based activities with individuals and communities facing disadvantage.
The organisation runs a schools programme, community programme and a successful national touring theatre programme. In 2009 Point Blank became the proud owners of The Riverside, the bar situated by the River Don at the bottom of Pitsmoor Road.
The Riverside, which itself is a little piece of Sheffield history having been around under different names since the 1850s, is an exciting bar with plans underway in developing a flourishing live arts space. The multi-purpose arts and events space will support emerging artists and members of the community.
Exciting plans to create a 100-seat studio theatre on the site are also underway. The venue will be used as a springboard for a range of social enterprise projects including a community kitchen, micro brewery, environmental trust and community garden.
