Festival of creativity to celebrate people and cultures

Sheffield’s Festival of Arts and Humanities 2017, a celebration of people and cultures, has been launched at a showcase event at the Millennium Gallery. The main festival, which is organised by Sheffield University, is to run at various venues for a three week period from the beginning of May. It will feature world renowned writers, poets and historians, film screenings, music, medieval cabaret and a Roman feast with the aim of stimulating imagination, creativity and “thinking about thinking”.
