Libraries, archives and information manager Nick Partridge said: “We wanted to put on an event that really celebrates and feeds the enthusiasm for outdoor adventure that exists here in Sheffield.

“The activities will give people real insight into daring exploits in the wild, covering the Himalayas, Africa, Arctic and closer to home.”
