A community singing event which was at risk of extinction when a Sheffield pub closed has been revived.

The Harvest Sing at the Rivelin pub has been in doubt for months after it closed suddenly earlier in the year.

But its new owners have pledged to support the event, with the first sing-song session around the piano set for October 5 from noon, after the pub has reopened at the end of this month.

The Rivelin has been refurbished but is still home to the piano which has always been used for the event.

A spokesman for the event said: “The annual get-together has been taking place for over 20 years. Now the Rivelin has been bought by someone living nearby and the new landlord has made it clear that he is happy to see the Harvest Sing continue.”
