Fortnight of fun brings Sheffield community together

Have your say

A FORTNIGHT full of summer time fun is under way in Sheffield.

Art exhibitions, a summer fair, music and poetry evenings are just some of the activities taking place during the Sharrow Fringe Festival, which runs until July 15.

The event kicks off today with a pottery class at Sharrow Old School, South View Road, from 7pm.

A bonkers bingo and cabaret night takes place on Wednesday, with a celebration-themed art exhibition at Highfield Trinity Church open to the public from Friday.

Other activities taking place as part of the festival include a community games day and live music at the church.

Luisa Golob, festival co-organiser for Creative Action Network, said: “The festival is an annual event and it has been going for a long time. We always get a lot of support from members of the community. I’ve got my only little team of volunteers who work very hard and we are hoping this year will be a success just like ones in the past.”
