A NEW performing arts festival is taking place at Sheffield University at the beginning of next month.
Platform will showcase and celebrate a whole array of talent from within the university and beyond.
The aim is to raise money for local charities, with all proceeds this year being donated to Cavendish Cancer Care.
More than 20 acts will be featured, ranging from dance and singing to comedy and physical theatre, and including some new writing and touring theatre groups. The event is on April 1 to 3 at a variety of venues.
