Celebrate the best of the North, past and present, with a music-packed weekend. Featuring Sheffield’s pioneering new wave band: 2.3. Returning after a 40-year-dissaparance with a new debut album, 2.3 are ready to storm the scene with the same raw energy that set Sheffield alight in 1977. Starring alongside them is I Set The Sea On Fire, the alternative rock band whose mix of four-part harmonies with traditional indie rock cement them as the future of the Sheffield music scene.

A review of new work by Analogue Theatre Company.

Inspired by the Mexican mural movement led by Diego Rivera, this painting depicts the global and political climate of the world during the late to mid-70s. The chronology of oppression and colonialism can be felt through the careful brushstrokes of the two Chilean emigres who created this piece. A year ago, this hidden jewel was gathering dust in storage, having been secluded away from the now-demolished Sheffield Centre Against Unemployment. Before its containment, the centre kept the painting hidden behind a temporary stud wall. Now, thanks to the help of volunteers, DINA Arts Centre has managed to restore the art piece to its rightful environment in which audiences from across the city are able to admire the exhibit.
