Competition entrants need to have a valid ticket to Friday's concert. There isn't a competition being run for Saturday's event.

Pulp are due to play two homecoming shows in Sheffield this week, which will be their first in the city since 2012. The band will sadly be returning without former bassist, Steve Mackey, who tragically died in March this year.

Jarvis Cocker has been joined on tour by Pulp’s long-term keyboard player Candida Doyle, drummer Nick Banks and guitarist Mark Webber, with the traditional line-up supplemented by Andrew McKinney on bass, Emma Smith on guitar and violin, and Adam Betts on keyboards, guitar and percussion.
