A major public debate on migration will take place in Sheffield tomorrow night - and will be live streamed on The Star website.

The Sheffield Speaks event in Cutlers Hall will ask what sort of city people want it to be in the era of migration and mobility.

It has been organised by academics at the University of Sheffield and will feature expert speakers.

In Sheffield, the subject of migration has dominated the headlines as Sheffield Council has confirmed it will welcome another ten to 15 Syrian families in the wake of the refugee crisis.

Gwilym Price, director of Sheffield Methods Institute which is involved in the event, has said the aim of the event was to ‘bridge the gap’ between academic research and the general public, allowing one to shape the other.

He added: “For me it is an opportunity for Sheffield’s voice to be heard.”

The debate takes place from 5pm to 7pm on Tuesday, October 13.
