It’s Great Outdoors: Celebrating Sheffield’s Green Spaces

Fun, interactive exhibition where you can find out more about different initiatives in your local area and learn how you can get involved in shaping Sheffield’s green spaces.

When?  Exhibition runs Saturday 3 November – Saturday 10 November. Open 8am-8pm (except Sunday 4 November, closes early at 6pm) 

Where? Sheffield Winter Garden, 90 Surrey Street, Sheffield, S1 2LH


Led by Jill Dickinson and Will Eadson (Sheffield Hallam University) and Nicola Dempsey (University of Sheffield)

We have a fantastic array of parks and green spaces in Sheffield. Within these, there is a real hive of green space activities that take place across the city, which are organised by, and involve, the council, third sector/charitable organisations festival organisers, volunteer groups, sports clubs and members of the public.

All of this takes place in the face of ongoing austerity, not only in Sheffield, but in towns and cities across the country. This raises important questions for debate: What are the long-term implications of austerity for our parks and green spaces? Who are the best custodians of parks and green spaces? And how does that happen in practice?

We will have speakers representing the private, public and voluntary sector and have a lively and stimulating debate about these big issues.

When?  Monday 5 November, 4pm-6pm

Where?  Millenium Galleries, 48 Arundel Gate,Sheffield,S1 2PP
