Upcoming events -

Members, local subscribers and non-members are all very welcome at our events.  For talks a charge is made, payable by all.  This includes tea or coffee and biscuit.  For other events such as walks and visits there is normally no charge except for entry fees, donations etc as one would expect.

Please note:  Meetings normally take place at the Friends’ Meeting House, St James Street, Sheffield S1 2EW (near the Cathedral), normally starting at 7.30pm.  Doors open 7pm.  Entance costs £4.50 including tea or coffee and all are welcome.
There are two disabled parking spaces in front of the building.  Other parking in the street opposite the building or in streets nearby - note that Sheffield City Council have recently extended the hours for which a parking fee must be paid to 8pm.  Parking from 4.30pm to 8pm costs a flat fee of £2 paid at a ticket machine near the entrance to the Friends’ Meeting House, or by phone using the details displayed on the ticket machine (this is now a local service - the former RinGo parking app no longer works - and no extra charge is made for paying by phone).  Please ensure you pay to avoid any possibility of a fine!  Please also note that parking on the single yellow lines outside the marked bays also incurs a charge. 

For more details of any event please contact the activities organisers, Judy and Graham Hague - see contacts page for details.

Thursday 15 March: Wardsend Cemetery - a talk by Howard Bayley of the Friends of Wardsend Cemetery.  This previously neglected burial ground, resting place of over 300,000 people, is now being tidied up and researched by the active Friends group which aims to promote knowledge of what is by any measure an important part of Sheffield’s heritage.
Thursday 19 April: at 7.15 – please note earlier start time. Our Group AGM. This will be followed at about 7.45 by a talk by Dr Sylvia Dunkley on Charles Green (1834-1916): ‘Prince of Craftsmen’.  Green was a Sheffield figure who deserves to be better known; a designer, sculptor and collector.  Sylvia has been actively researching his story, and we shall have an up to date account.  There is no charge for attending the AGM but the normal charge applies to the talk.  Everyone is welcome to attend the AGM and everyone’s views are welcome, however only members of the national Victorian Society may vote in any election or ballot. 

As usual The South Yorkshire Group will be running two guided walks during “Environment Weeks” in May and June.  Details will be posted here when available, and in the next newsletter.
