Latin music and dance festival in Sheffield proves a hit

Have your say

Over 2,000 Latin music and dance fans made last weekend’s Salsa In The Square festival in Sheffield the most successful on record.

Sheffield city centre’s Leopold Square was packed for the nine-hour extravaganza.

There were fears early in 2015 that Salsa In The Square might have to fold after Plattilos - the originators of the festival - went out of business.

But Cubana - which took over the lease on the former Plattilos building- offered to revive the event.

There was a live salsa band, salsa lessons, belly dancing, DJs and dance demonstrations.

The festival will return in May.
