VIDEO: Today is the day YOU can help Sheffield beat other cities to win the job of hosting this exciting exhibition

Have your say

Calling all Sheffielders - your help is needed for our city to win the job of hosting the Great Exhibition of the North which will run for at least two months in 2018.

The event will showcase the creative, cultural and design sectors across the whole of the North, boosting investment and tourism across the region.

Blackpool, Bradford, Newcastle-Gateshead are the other places shortlisted as hosts.

Throughout September the Great Exhibition has celebrated what each location has to offer in the run up to the final decision later this autumn.

To help today, share messages of support and photos of your favourite area in Sheffield on Twitter and Instagram using #GreatNorthExpo2018 #Sheffield.
