    Standing At The Sky’s Edge Theatre Review

    Well, it’s the musical performance that everybody in Sheffield has been talking about. Standing at the Sky’s Edge, I have to talk about it, because it was absolutely phenomenal. For those of you who aren’t from the area, or those Sheffielders who have been living under a rock, Standing at the Sky’s Edge is a new musical, with music written by Pulp’s Richard Hawley, focussing on Park Hill flats. Park Hill, is a concrete giant which has overlooked the city centre since the late 1950’s and is steeped in local history.

    The Library: Food for the Soul

    Looking for somewhere to go out for a date night or a catch up with the girls? Have any of you been to The Library* at Attercliffe recently? I bet at this point you’re wondering what on earth I’m on about. Let me explain. This is in fact a review of one of Sheffield’s newest cafe/ restaurants rather than a ramble about the local library service.

    The Devonshire- The Perfect Sunday Lunch

    Today I want to talk about food. If you know me in person you’ll know I love to eat. If I’m not thinking about food I’m talking about it and if it’s neither of those then I’m eating it. Last weekend myself and Josh had the best Sunday lunch at The Devonshire so I thought I’d tell you all about it.* We decided to go on a Sunday so that we could walk into town and both enjoy a cheeky cocktail instead of one of us having to drive. So, for those of you that don’t know, The Devonshire is located on Division Street in Sheffield, so it’s super central…

    Summer Favourites

    I haven’t done a proper monthly favourites for a long time, so I thought it might be nice to bundle them all together in a summer favourites post instead. The Leadmill Comedy Club* Last month, myself and Josh headed to The Leadmill- my favourite events venue in Sheffield, for their monthly Comedy Club. We saw 3 top class comedians who had us both in stitches. They covered everything from life as a Dad, to chatting up the audience using songs.¬†We were picked on for being on the front row by the ruthless compere, but it’s all a bit of fun. Who doesn’t want interrogating about their sex life in front…
