The HODs team is busy working on the festival, which runs September 10-19 and sees a return to in-person gatherings after the largely digital events of last year.
Organizer Janet Ridler said, “We want to make sure the festival doesn’t slip under the radar of venues and organizers as they start to open again.
“The festival will likely be one of the first large-scale heritage events to take place across the country.
“Since everything is free, we expect this to be one of the first ways that thousands of people will begin to reconnect with heritage in Sheffield and beyond as they start to get out and about again. “
This year’s theme is Edible England and the organizers can’t wait to see some of Sheffield’s independent food producers take part.
They say it would be a great platform for different cultures to showcase their food heritage and the Sheffield Civic Trust team can support and help anyone who has never done so before.
One of the events is All Good Stuff at Butchers Works in Arundel Street, where local artists are invited to submit performances in any medium of food, drink and related artifacts such as can openers and bottles, crockery and cutlery and table decorations.
The Central Library and Reading Sheffield will feature vintage cookery and housekeeping books – worn, stained, and treasured grandparents’ books, passed down to parents and now on your kitchen shelves.
Janet added: “We really want to encourage places to register and offer something for people to do in September – it can be a lecture, a walk, a behind-the-scenes look at a hidden gem, a guided tour. or a demonstration. .
“There are a lot of different ways to organize an event and it might only last a few hours during the festival dates.
“Built and natural heritage is welcome, including museums, churches, mosques, woods, cemeteries, parks, neighborhoods, libraries, historic buildings, factories, theaters, cultural centers – it’s a very broad mandate. ”
