The courtyard is beautiful in the sun. When I was in the sliding doors were open; their size means that when shut the cafe will bright.
I have walked past many times and the rooftop garden sounded very glamorous. Perhaps I was too hyped by the rooftop garden and that caused disappointment. It was big and looked too empty. There were plants but, I think it needed more foliage; more like the rooftop garden at South bank that I recently visited would be better. Also, it was not as high as I expected from walking past the front of the building. The garden is at the back of the building and this being, hilly Sheffield the back is not as high up as the front of the building.
Good hot chocolate and Turkish delight cake.
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:
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:
At the Beehive
At the Mulberry
A new cafe, in Sheffield on Division street. Aesthetically pleasing, in the popular rustic industrial style, popular at the moment. At one end was a fake fire, which may seem cosy in winter. As it was a hot summers day, I sat at the bar at the window, to people watch the comings and goings of Division street. Sat with a cool milkshake.
