Sheffield’s Festival of the Outdoors- we reveal all the events taking place

3 March 2022

The Festival of the Outdoors is returning to Sheffield this March for a full month of events and activities. 

The Festival programme will bring together events across the city’s outdoor organisations.

The groups, clubs and businesses will bring activities including climbing, paddle boarding, mountain biking and more to residents.

The Outdoor city is supported by the Council’s Economic Recovery fund, and aims to help businesses bounce back from the struggles of the pandemic. 

Kicking off the month is Vivacity, a free music and lighting concert in Sheffield City Centre that will take place on 4th and 5th of March. 

Ellie Murphy, Event Manager, said: “You’re going to hear a bit of everything this weekend from reggae to old classics so there will be something for everyone. 

“With shops closing everywhere and people shopping online, it’s extremely important to do these events to bring people back into the city centre.”

As well as live bands and DJ’s, Vivacity will have various activities for everyone. 

Ms Murphy said: “We like to bring diversity to all of our events so we included live music alongside street food, kids entertainment and lighting.”

Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) is another headline event at the Festival of the Outdoors taking place on the 9th of March. 

Matt Heason, co-director of ShAFF, said: “This year we partnered with the outdoor city to try and bring some of the adventure films to some of Sheffield’s iconic buildings.

Get Together and ShAFF are teaming up to create this special event at the Sheffield Cathedral. 

There will be a mixture of adventure films and three live music acts. 

Films will be selected by ShAFF and musicians chosen by Get Together to play live. 

Mr Heason said “We’re hoping that by partnering up with all of these organisations, we will attract some people that wouldn’t have heard about ShAFF.” 

ShAFF will also be hosting another adventure film event for the Outdoor City on the 18th-20th March.
