All the fun of the fair will be back at a popular Sheffield park over the bank holiday weekend - attracting thousands for the 12th year in a row.

Norfolk Heritage Park will host Sheffield Fayre, a free event on Sunday, August 25, and Monday, August 26, from 10.30am until 5.30pm.

Highlights will include historical re-enactments, a giant craft and horticulture marquee, fairground attractions and a bustling market place.

Back this year are popular fairground sideshows organised by Professor Vanessa Toumlin from Sheffield University.

Also returning is the Jon Bauer Memorial Horticultural Show, featuring potentially prize-winning produce.

“We have categories to judge in cacti, fuchsias, dahlias and roses, through to vegetables, homemade crafts, honey and wine,” said Gillian Capewell, horticultural tent manager.
