Vanishing Point: a City Walk with Angelina D’Roza and Pete Green
Lady’s Bridge, Sheffield, S3 8GJ
Sunday 28 May | 11am to 1pm | £7 (£6 conc.)
Join poets Angelina D’Roza and Pete Green on a walk that spans Lady’s Bridge and the Cholera Monument, tracking central Sheffield’s intersecting lines of road, river and rail, scaling and exploring its iconic and historic sites, and reflecting on its status as a city of sanctuary, before reaching a hilltop terminus with near-panoramic views of Sheffield. Along the way, Angelina and Pete will introduce and read poems that illuminate this changing landscape. The walk will start on Lady’s Bridge at 11am; please arrive in good time to ensure a prompt departure. The walk is moderately paced with gradual ascents, and will take approximately 2 hours (including several stops along the route). Advance booking essential; click here to book tickets. Part of the 2017 South Yorkshire Poetry Festival.
