This week is quite a special one in our beloved city, as we will be welcoming home the brand new ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ film being released on Amazon Prime with a very special premiere at The Crucible. You can find out all about how to see the stars here, as well as information on the other celebrations going on here. We hope the lucky few who got tickets to the Cinema For All screenings we are hosting around the city have a great night too! Keep up to date with all thing Jamie using #JamieSheff, and don’t forget there’s the costume and prop display taking place at the Winter Garden (with some special appearances too) from 17 – 25 September, so be sure to check that out.

And if all the action on Friday 17 leaves you wanting more, then you’re in the right place. On Saturday 18 we’ll see the return of Hedgerow Market which will take over Division St with makers, traders, performers and loads more. What’s more, Saturday will also see the Creative Guild Makers Market take over Orchard Square, and the Waterfront Festival return at Victoria Quays with taster sessions of everything from paddleboarding to Bollywood Dancing. Speaking of dancing, if that’s more your thing then there’s the Sheffield Bassline BBQ 2 at Sheaf House from 2 – 10pm.

Across the whole of that weekend (18/19) the inaugural Harvest Fayre food market is taking place right across the city centre – so you definitely don’t need to bring snacks or a picnic! – and the University of Sheffield is hosting their Pop Up University event in Tudor Square to keep your mind challenged while your tummy digests. On Sunday 19 there is the very first Pollen Market, brought to you by the folks behind Peddler Market, giving you a new monthly celebration of all things botanical. Or if you fancy something a bit different for the kids, try the Froggy Fun Day at Norfolk Heritage Park or Nether Edge Festival’s Picnic in the Park at Chelsea Park, both also on Sunday 19 September.

Still ongoing across the whole week are both the Sheffield Walking Festivaland Heritage Open Days (including everything from the History of the Gardeners Rest to a special ‘Behind the Screens’ event at the National Videogame Musuem), and Operation Crucible is still on until 25 September and has been getting rave reviews once again – or if you fancy some improv theatre try out ‘Let Us Make It Up To You’ at the brilliant Theatre Deli on 18 September.

Plus – welcome to Sheffield to all the freshers coming into the city as part of both our great Universities!
