June - 4 Sheffield festivals in a month
June's been a busy time for festivals around Sheffield with something for everyone.
First we had Doc/Fest, 6 days of documentaries being shown all over Sheffield, including the European Premiere of Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets. If ever you forget about Doc/Fest, you're always reminded as soon as you see people wondering the city with pink and yellow lanyards, looking a little lost but ultimately happy.
Then we had Peace in the Park - a free one day festival held on the Pondarosa - music, crafts, real ale, political activists and a tiny bit of rain.
Then it was off out of Sheffield to Bakewell for L'Eroica - a "3 day boutique festival dedicated to family fun, glorious vintage, food, drink and cycling".
And lastly it's Sheffield Design Week, "a citywide celebration of design in all its forms […] a collaborative platform aiming to increase awareness and appreciation of design and develop new audiences", taking place from the 23-29 June.
And of course it doesn't stop there - plenty more going on in Sheffield in July - Tour de France and Tramlines anyone?!
