Sheftival: Sheffield village band added to bill

Have your say

A VILLAGE band has landed a prime spot on the bill for Sheffield’s biggest festival of sport, music and culture.

Loxley Silver Band has been added to the long line of acts performing at this weekend’s Sheftival. The band will play on the main stage at Don Valley Bowl at 1.30pm on Sunday and other festival locations throughout the afternoon.

Around 50,000 people are expected to flock to the event, which will broadcast homegrown hero Jess Ennis’s Olympic medal attempt on a big screen.
