  • [...] This independent community arts and music festival offers seven stages of music, from a DJ tent powered by local lads Sequoia Sound System, to acoustic sets by the super-cool Red House pub, and a pedal-powered sound system. Don’t miss live graffiti art, a pop-up cinema and a Guinness World Records attempt for the most number of children being read a story. You’ll find heaps of craft, a vintage tea tent and a local ale bar. Started in 2003 as a protest against the Iraq war, it’s a charity fundraiser with a relaxed atmosphere.• Free, noon-8pm, the Ponderosa, Netherthorpe, [...]

  • Laura says:

    I’m really looking forward to this event, I’ve heard on the grapevine its pretty cool, but I’m unsure where exactly its taking place as I’m not familiar with the area, would it be possible create a page with maybe a map and some directions on how to get there by car ad public tranport? I know quite a few people have had a similar problem with finding the location x

  • Tanja says:

    Great Festival. We are trying to find the name of the singer/guitarist that was on around 6 o’clock in the little tent near the trapeze ropes and the tea tent. He was wearing a blue shirt and did a really good set. Does anyone know what he is called?

A gang of folk on instagram who do photowalks around Sheffield are planning to tag all photos taken on the day with #instapeacesheffield – we’re going to meet at the jungle tea tent on the bottom field at 1pm and 3pm but generally just take fab pics of the day. Come join us! Xx @instameetsheffield
