Pop fans got the chance to star in a music video in Sheffield’s Endcliffe Park when cameras rolled to film city songbird Philippa Hanna, writes Graham Walker.

It’s from the forthcoming new album, Throught The Woods, recorded and produced at Eliot Kennedy’s world famous Foundry at The Steelworks Studio.
