The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals


Women are running the show this March in Sheffield, with an eclectic itinerary of inspiring and empowering events courtesy of this year’s SheFest.

The 10-day feminist festival is in honour of International Women’s Day (8th March) – a day to reflect on and applaud the progress made in the quest for gender equality.

Back for its fifth year on 5-15 March, SheFest is a celebration of the women of Sheffield, with events including award-winning standup comedy, self-care workshops, and thought-provoking theatre promoting body positivity.

Here are our top ten highlights of SheFest 2020, brought together by Armarni Turton. For the full programme, see the SheFest site.
