Get The Word Out

by Now Then Sheffield

1 November | Town Hall

Alt-Sheff always gives a shout out to the annual Peace and Craft Fair, coming round this year on Saturday 1 November, 11am-4.30pm, upstairs in the Town Hall. If you've never been, have a look. Not every city has such a radical mix of campaigning groups and local crafts, with roots in the mythical days of the Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire. Forget Meadowhall - start your Christmas shopping here with some quality ethical gifts, and enjoy live music and refreshments too.

17 October | Quaker Meeting House

Sheffield also hosts a high-powered conference on air quality and health this month. Quite right too, because there's a toxic public health scandal in fume-filled Sheffield districts from Woodseats to Tinsley. The line-up includes researchers and campaigners who have given evidence to the Government, and our own enviro-Councillor Jack Scott, who's pushing for a new Sheffield air quality action plan. The conference is on the morning of Friday 17 October, and it's free to attend if pre-booked.
