Party in the Parklet

28 May 2022 12:00 - 18:30

The Abbeydale Street Trees team have received funding from Sheffield City Council Economic Recovery Fund to create a new parklet on Abbeydale Road. This oasis of green will be a new community space, with plants, seating, bike parking and art installations for you to enjoy, and it's being unfurled for your pleasure on Saturday 28th May.

Have a wander through the ages on a history walk of the area with the indubitably marvellous Rebecca L. Hearne, create poetic works of wonder with Sheffield's own nature journalist & author Joe Shute, join the art antics with Emily or have some fabulous Circus Fun with Rosie.
