A snapshot of this weekend shows what a varied city Sheffield is.
In one corner tonight proud Scots will be celebrating the life of poet Robert Burns.
While in another corner – excuse the boxing terminology – tomorrow fans will be flocking to see Hollywood superstar (and, for many, Rocky Balboa) Sylvester Stallone at the City Hall.
Each year, members of the Sheffield Caledonian Society don their kilts to enjoy a special supper to mark the birthday of Burns. We’re sure they’ll have a great night.
Equally so those who will be going to see the Stallone event which is in association with media partner, The Star’s entertainments and listings site www.wow247.co.uk.
It’s a rare weekend without Sheffield United or Wednesday playing at home, which would normally be an attraction for thousands of people on a Saturday.
However, with snooker confirmed to be at the Crucible until at least 2017 and tickets now on sale for Kell Brook’s first world title defence at the Motorpoint Arena on March 28 sport is still high on the agenda.
We often focus on what Sheffield cannot do instead of what it can do.
There is plenty on offer to keep us entertained.
