Supporters of Sheffield’s popular Off The Shelf literature festival gathered at the Showroom Cinema for a special presentation celebrating the success of last year’s event.

Organisers took the audience through some festival highlights and shared evaluation statistics.

Last year’s Off The Shelf featured talks by journalist Kirsty Wark, chef Yotam Ottolenghi and comedian Paul Merton.

John Lydon, former Sex Pistols vocalist, was among big names at the festival.

Fellow musicians Viv Albertine and Julian Cope also spoke about their books.
