Have your say

Streets, green spaces and buildings across Heeley will be awash with people and entertainment this Saturday, June 20, for the Sheffield suburb’s annual festival.

Music, food, a fun fair, classic cars and stalls are among the attractions due to attract the crowds between noon and 8pm.

The festival, based in and around Heeley People’s Park, has been organised by Heeley Development Trust.

Anns Grove School will be hosting a car boot sale and there will be activities organised by Sheffield United Community Foundation.

Local history enthusiasts can visit Heeley Parish Church to view an exhibition, while The Institute will host a pop-up learning zone with free taster sessions on offer.

There will also be stalls at Heeley City Farm.

Festival organiser Bev Nunn said: “We wanted to build on the success of last year’s Big Boulder music stage by finding even more local talent to perform - we’re thrilled with our line-up, it should make for a great afternoon.”

“Other new features this year include the fun fair and Sheffield United’s involvement, and hungry visitors will be spoilt for choice - we have some delicious food stalls booked.”
