Time to debate the future of Sheffield’s heritage

Have your say

A conference is being organised to discuss the contribution Sheffield’s heritage makes to life in the city.

A key event in the Year of Making festival, which runs throughout 2016, the event will take place at Sheffield Hallam University on April 16. Brian Holmshaw, chair of the conference steering committee, said it was a ‘first’ for the city.

“We have an opportunity to talk over the future of this city’s heritage, from our world-renowned industrial legacy to lesser-known corners we all cherish - picture houses of the 1920s, Tudor buildings, churches, cemeteries and civic buildings, pubs and parks, right through to the gritty histories of our established and more recent communities.”

Speakers from the National Trust and Nottingham Council are lined up. Booking opens soon. Email heritageconference2016@gmail.com for details.
