Drinks Reception, Tuesday 5th September 2017

Kelham Island MuseumThe CCWI 17 Welcome Drinks Reception will be held at Kelham Island Museum.

The museum is steeped in Sheffield's industrial history and stands on a man made island which is over 900 years old. It is home to one of only three Bessemer Converters left in the world and of course, the ever popular and historic River Don Engine, the most powerful working steam engine remaining in Europe.

Complimentary drinks and canapes will be served in the museum, where delegates will be able to enjoy the history of Sheffield's industrial revolution and explore at their leisure.

Delegates will then be free to move on to pubs or restaurants of their choice. The Kelham Island Museum is surrounded by local pubs who serve a whole host of real ales, which are not to be missed. For those who wish to eat, the Museum is a short ride to the City Centre.

Drinks Reception Address:  Kelham Island Museum, Alma Street, Sheffield, S3 8RY.
