It will be full steam ahead as Sheffield celebrates its industrial heritage.

History will come alive when Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet hosts its annual steam-gathering event this weekend.

A line-up of old-fashioned engines will be the stars of the show, while crowds will be able to learn more about the history of skills and crafts in the city with demonstrations of iron smelting and cane seat and charcoal making.

An antiques and craft show and live music will add to the family fun from 10am until 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Niki Connolly, events manager at Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust, said: “Steam is arguably the most important technology of the Industrial Revolution and played a huge role in Sheffield’s industrial heritage. The gathering will round off a fantastic series of events this year.”

Entry is £3 for adults and free for children.

Car parking will not be on offer at the site.
