A NATIONAL company has sponsored a Sheffield festival for the second year.

Civica - which provides business process services - has been named platinum sponsor of the annual Off the Shelf.

Civica will be hosting a number of key events throughout the festival, including a poetry party with award-winning poet Benjamin Zephaniah at the Lyceum Theatre on October 9.

Students from across the city will be invited to perform on stage with Benjamin.

Lee Burley, managing director of Civica’s education division, said: “We are delighted to partner with Off the Shelf Festival 2012. We initially became aware of the event through our work providing ICT-based learning environments for secondary schools in Sheffield.”
