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

The first Page Hall Festival is taking place this March. The two-day festival will be a celebration of Page Hall, its people and their stories and experiences, and will show the rest of the city what makes this place special. The online event will showcase talent from all backgrounds and generations of its residents, with music, dance, poetry, cookery, workshops, talks and more – all for free.

The programme includes a workshop with Sheffield Poet Laureate Warda Yassin, a session on creating a family journal with Ignite Imaginations, performances from Roma dance troupe Romano Jilo and Gipsy Miro Bystrany Band, a talk from Otis Mensah about exploring identity through poetry and hip-hop, and an introduction to Greentop Community Circus. There'll also be an excerpt of a new film from Hidden Pictures, recordings from Fir Vale School and OASIS Academy Fir Vale, crafty workshops including making a clay mobile of places you love, a session on henna, and lots more.

See the full schedule.

The festival is organised by the folks behind Migration Matters Festival and Sheffield City Council.

Tune in on Friday 26 and Saturday 27 March via the festival's website, YouTube and Facebook.
