The competition invites people from any age group the chance to show off their creativity, talents and stories by creating a TikTok video.

A signed Blades shirt, which has been donated by the club, will be awarded to the winner of the We Are Page Hall competition.

Tchiyiwe Chihana, press and audience development manager for the festival, said: “It is a chance for people to show off their creativity. Show whatever makes them proud, identify what makes them Page Hall. Options are only limited by imagination.”

To enter the competition, people are asked to ‘show us what you’re proud of doing’.
