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

Under The Stars is a Sheffield-based arts and events charity for adults with learning disabilities. During lockdown, its community has continued to come together remotely, and its music groups have collaborated on a new song in response to lockdown. Members of the Monday and Friday music groups took inspiration from what they could see from their windows during lockdown to create the Lockdown song. Its lyrics touch on birdsong, sunshine and the park, as well as missing Pukka pies and growing long hair – enjoy it below!
