Sheffield city centre
Vanishing Point – a city walk led by Angelina D’Roza and me for the South Yorkshire Poetry Festival. Join us on a route that spans Lady’s Bridge and the Cholera Monument, tracking central Sheffield’s intersecting lines of road, river and rail, scaling and exploring its iconic and historic sites, and reflecting on its status as a city of sanctuary, before reaching a hilltop terminus with near-panoramic views of Sheffield. Starts 11am, to last roughly two hours. £7/£6 concs with advance booking.
