Sheffield City of Seven Hills: Annual July Culture

In addition to Tramlines in July, for the last 4 or 5 years, local aspiring performers have come together to perform in Sheffield’s theatres a specially developed play with Sheffield stories. The show that I saw tonight, will be performed tomorrow and Saturday night.

It is a rich story. Possibly a little too ambitious, with all that was crammed in which distracted from it’s coherence. In echos of Everybody is Talking about Jamie there was a Transgender character in addition to a vicar, a ghost and asylum seekers. In all but name the opening of Sheffield’s Ikea store was commentated apart from it was called, Skandi.

There annual plays are certainly interesting and a great opportunity for locals; making it a worthy July tradition to continue.

2018 World Cup: The hugs, rain ☔️ and six goals

Wish I had seen more matches, but was so busy during tournament. Just saw England and Belgium matches and the final.

This picture is scoreboard of Belgium’s goal in 3-0 win against Panama.

England beat Panama 6-0.

When England knocked Columbia out Southgate comforted a Columbia player, who missed penalty.

Southgate did a lot of hugging …

This was Belgium defender incredible clearance from goal line during England match ch.

Belgium won both matches against England in group stage and in third place play Off. We w by out straight after final whistle so did not see presentations.

Saw presentation for final against France and Croatia. French and Croatian presidents showed great humanity, hugging players and accepting heavy down pour.

Hillsborough Park continues to be prepared.

The Exposed programme which lists fringe events, is now out. It is very comprehensive featuring a range of venues and one section listed by artist name and another section each pub by day. However, still there is more pubs offering music than, in the programme.

I picked a paper copy up from Rocco but, there should be copies in other pubs and cafes. It is also available online:

Fringe prog

I believe there is still a few tickets left for the paid part of the festival which has s break stages. So basically, there is a lot of music everywhere in Sheffield if the coming weekend. I feel spoilt for choice and there are times, I could do with being in two places at once over the weekend.

Here are some other listings, that I have seen:

A Redhead's Rambling

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in Top 5 Tuesday since my blogging break but I couldn’t resist joining in with this week’s topic! As always, Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm and today the topic is Books I Want To Re-Read. I’m not a re-reader at all (I just don’t have time with all the unread books calling me!) but I often think about what books I’d like to lose myself in all over again.

Harry Potter – J. K. Rowling

Of course this would be first on my list! I adore everything about this series with all my heart and if I had infinite time to read I’d have this on a constant loop. I grew up in this world and I certainly haven’t grown out of it. Plus, with it being such a huge book series I’m bound…
