Castlegate FestivalSat 20 Jun 2015 – Sun 21 Jun 2015
We are excited to bring a full programme of artist led activities to one of the oldest and fastest changing parts of Sheffield. There will be tours, street performers, talks, exhibitions and live art which seeks to shine a new light on this part of the city.
Yorkshire Artspace artist in residence Paul Evans will be launching ‘COCOA’ – Castlegate Open Community of Artists at Castle House. There will be chance to join in and help create work for a large scale projection onto Exchange Place Studios as well as artist talks, live art demonstrations and exhibitions.
Tours led by artist Helen Stratford will lead you around the area with a view to spotting the area’s Flora and Fauna – both real and imagined! You are also invited to take a walk around Castle House with Friends of the Old Town Hall, and a five weirs walk with the City’s head of Regeneration. There will be a Pop Up shop throughout the weekend at Exchange Place Studios, a street party outside Castle House and if all that sounds like thirsty work, there’ll be a Festival Bar at Bank Street Arts.
Look out for full programme of events coming soon.
