Theatre’s election with a difference

Have your say

A new Sheffield theatre space is giving everyone the chance to have their say on next week’s General Election.

Theatre Delicatessen in the old Woolworth’s store on the Moor is hosting the 
Sheffield Alternative Election, an installation that invites participants to think critically about how much choice we have in our democracy.

Participants are invited to submit policies that 
they would like to see implemented by their government, as well as have their say on a number of other issues.

You can help decide how tax revenue should be distributed by playing with the budget balls and they’ve even got David Cameron coming down so everyone can take a selfie or two.

Everyone’s policy ideas will be voted on by other visitors.

Organisers Forest Sounds will be launching the results in the form of the new Sheffield Constitution at an election night party next Thursday at 8pm.

This will feature democracy games and live voting experiments as well as a range of guest speakers.

There will be music and a bar. Entry will cost £4, but Forest Soundss say no-one will be turned away for lack of money.

Reserve a place online with Eventbrite.
