Sheffield Contemporary Architecture tour - Any day - Anytime

This one isn't specifically an event but more of a recommendation. Welcome to Sheffield have put together a series of guides on local sights and points of interests. Our top pick is the contemporary architecture tour which explores some of the more interesting buildings of the Sheffield skyline. The guide is put together as a walking tour but we recommend jumping on a bicycle a seeing sights that way. Find the guide here.

Sheffield Luna Cinema - 28th August - 6:30pm

Ok, it's a given that if you love Star Wars, who doesn't? It's also a given that you desire to see the glorious Sheffield skyline as the suns sets. If my good time algebra is correct, then the sum of the above is sure to equal the square route of galactic cinematic fun.

Pay a visit to the Luna cinema webpage to get your tickets ahead of time. Contact your local galactic warfare distributor to ensure prompt delivery of your lightsabre. Leave your bicycle at the Sheffield station cycle hub for secure storage.
