Summer holiday picks

School's out!

While the summer holiday is an absolute joy, it's not always easy to keep the good times going throughout the full six weeks. Thankfully many of Sheffield's cultural venues make it that much easier.

Here's our roundup of some of the activities and events for families, kids and young people taking place in the city's museums, galleries and heritage sites over the 2019 summer break – from puppetry at the theatre to space-themed crafty fun to hands-on videogames workshops.
