The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Sheffield City Archives wants your help in capturing what life is like in Sheffield in 2020 – the everyday experiences (good and bad, exceptional and mundane) that make this period in history so unique.

"As with all significant events in history, the Coronavirus pandemic will be recorded in official documents. But what of our own personal experiences in Sheffield? The documents that are always of most interest to historians and researchers are the voices of ordinary people."

They're looking for diaries, scrapbooks, photos, sound recordings, leaflets, and lots more, to help record this moment in time for future generations.
