LEARN more about the history of The Star at a special talk in Sheffield.

Digital community editor Nancy Fielder, editor of The Star’s weekly nostalgia supplement Retro, is giving a talk at Weston Park Museum in the city tomorrow.

As The Star celebrates its 125th anniversary this year, Nancy will be looking back on the serious, tragic and downright silly moments that made headlines across the decades, from 1pm.

Visitors are urged to take along their old photos which may be published in forthcoming editions of Retro.

The event is part of Off the Shelf, the city-wide festival of words www.offtheshelf.org.uk and ties in with a display of The Star’s history at the museum.

Other anniversary events have included the naming of an East Midlands Trains high-speed locomotive The Sheffield Star, a visit by The Duke of York to The Star’s offices in York Street, a meet-the-editor event at Sheffield Town Hall and a series of supplements looking at the history of the title which conclude in tomorrow’s edition.
