View the full programme     Check the Facebook page for updates

The University of Sheffield is hosting the fourth Sheffield Makes Music - an official part of the BBC’s annual UK-wide programme of events celebrating the power of music to change lives.

Sheffield Makes Music will weave musical sounds through the city centre including Fargate, Orchard Square and Castlegate showcasing the brilliant musical creators, contributors and talent Sheffield has to offer through a range of acoustic, choral, electronic and pop performances.

Visitors to the city centre will experience amazing sounds in unexpected places - with performances by artists including Tixxy Bang, LIO, Opera on Location, Steve Edwards, Surf Muscle, Before Breakfast, Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and the Sheffield Makes Music Pop Up Orchestra.

University of Sheffield alumni, Jon McClure of Reverend and the Makers, will form a one-off ‘supergroup’ - including band member Ed Cosens and Kweku Sackey of K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade. This special Sheffield/Ghanian fusion performance will end the day at the Big Yellow Bus on Fargate at 6.30pm.

Sheffield Makes Music - which will run from 11am-7pm - has been organised by the University of Sheffield in partnership with BBC Music Day and supported by Sheffield BID, Sheffield City Council, Orchard Square, Yellow Arch Studios and The Leadmill.

Professor Vanessa Toulmin, Director of City and Culture at the University of Sheffield, said: "We're delighted to once again be delivering Sheffield Makes Music in partnership with the city's talented local musicians and venues. We were spoilt for choice in pulling together the programme as there is such an array of amazing and diverse talent across the city.

"By staging the vast majority of events in walking distance of each other, the city centre will be full of energy and life with a musical backdrop which only Sheffield can deliver. I challenge everyone to come along and perhaps listen to a different musical genre or sound that they haven't before - you won't fail to be impressed with how Sheffield Makes Music."

Untameable (inspired by the writing and archives of Barry Hines (Western Bank Library Exhibition)

[ 14 OCTOBER-16 DECEMBER ]

Part of Off the Shelf Festival of Words

untameableMonday 14 October - Monday 16 December 2019, Western Bank Library Mezzanine Floor

Opening times and directions

Untameable is an exhibition and installation at Weston Bank Library inspired by Barry Hines’s writing and the contents of his archive held in the Special Collections at The University of Sheffield by artists Patrick Murphy and Anton Want.

The project title highlights Hines's dogged determination over three decades to write about the changing personal and political landscapes of working-class life in South Yorkshire.

Hines was the quintessential working-class writer from Barnsley. He was a man who wrote from the margins, and unflinchingly chronicled the social injustices he witnessed: from the failure of the education system and lack of opportunity found in A Kestrel for a Knave and the examination of land ownership and alienated labour in The Gamekeeper, to the devastating effect that Thatcherism had on Sheffield in Looks and Smiles and the increasingly toxic climate of nuclear threat during the 1980s in Threads.

Including reworkings of rare documents and material from the archive this collection also builds on Hines’s interests in examining contemporary South Yorkshire landscapes and communities as they continued to change and evolve to survive in an increasingly politicised 20th century.

To promote the project, graphics have also been installed in the arts tower, where Barry Hines had an office during his time working at the University in the School of English.
