Tasty line-up announced for Sheffield food and music celebration
Sheffield’s food, drink and creative scenes are set to unite for a celebration of all things independent in the city centre this month.
Taking place the weekend of 21-23 September, A Taste of Independent Sheffield has been organised in conjunction with True North Brew Co and Timm Cleasby from Tramlines Festival. Coinciding with the return of the native student population, the event will feature a wide mix of food traders as well as art showcases and a live music programme featuring local talent.
Stalls will spread across Fargate and the Peace Gardens, including a True North drinks tent serving a selection of the brewery’s finest drinks and hosting live music through to the evening. Also featured will be a gin and rum festival, with more than 100 different spirits on offer and talks from experts throughout the day.
