Event - Sounds of battle at summer fair (Sheffield Fair)

PREPARATIONS are under way for an event which attracts 25,000 people to a Sheffield park for a series of traditional horticultural and family events

The Sheffield Fair celebrates its tenth anniversary this year and organisers said it was one of the largest free events in South Yorkshire.

Norfolk Heritage Park will again host the fair this year and a spokesman said its aim was to “increase people’s awareness of their cultural heritage”.

Attractions will include favourites like the Sheffield Horticultural Show and a large multi-period living history camp and battle re-enactment.

The horticultural show will have classes for a wide variety of plants but will also include culinary, craft, honey, wine, art and photography classes, with entries open to both adults and children.

This year the event will also include a display by the Sheffield and District Orchid Society, which was founded in 1972.

For more information on how to enter this year’s show, which takes place on August 28 and 29, see the schedule at, phone 0114 2860400 or email
