Sheffield: What’s happening in Summer 2018?
What’s happening Sheffield in Summer 2018?
If you are a student who is local to Sheffield, or plan on staying in Sheffield this summer, there is a lot to be excited about. Obviously, they’ll be no studying, which is always nice, but what we really mean is that there's loads going on in the Steel City to keep you busy.
Here we take a look at some of the events going on that you simply cannot afford to miss if you want to fully embrace the Sheffield experience.
Tuesday Club Summer Carnival
Now you are a fully fledged resident of Sheffield, there’s a very good chance you will have spent the night partying at Sheffield University’s Tuesday Club, or at the very least heard of it. What you may not know is that every year the Tuesday Club host a huge summer carnival. Now in it’s 5th year, this event now tends to sell out so you’ll have to get tickets before the date itself, which is Tuesday 5th June. The carnival brings you 12 hours of music, across 4 different venues. It starts at Bar One Gardens at the Sheffield Students Union and ends at the Foundry. That’s all you need to know really!
Here’s a video from a few years ago, giving you a taster of what to expect. The video alone makes us want to go out for a pint!
Sheffield Food Festival
Summer doesn’t strictly start until 21st June, however, the weather should be better by then (fingers crossed) and the Sheffield Food festival has too much going on that we had to make it an early entry into our list.
Sheffield Food Festival is in it’s 8th year, and last year attracted over 40,000 visitors over the weekend. The city’s largest free to attend event takes place on 26th – 28th May 2018 bang in Sheffield city centre, spreading across the Peace Gardens, Winter Gardens, Millennium Square, Town Hall Square and Fargate,
We recommend it to try some local brewers and awesome street food. If you like any sort of craft beer or decent grub, then this is the place to be!
Pretty Muddy - 5K
On the 16th June, Pretty Muddy hits Sheffield. The clue is kind of in the name (but to be perfectly clear so you dress accordingly), Pretty Muddy is a 5 kilometre muddy obstacle course. Could you not think of anything better to do with your weekend than crawling through a mud pit?
It all takes place at Graves Park, on Cobnar Road. There are 4 waves of start times on the Saturday morning, so as soon as you and your mates have completed it, you can get straight to the pub, and get celebrating.
If you fancy doing it, but not sure you are up to it, don’t panic. Pretty Mudder also offer a training plan to get you ready in 6 weeks. There’s no excuses really. It’s only £20 to take part.
The event also helps to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.
