Tramlines on the Moor

Wednesday 20th July 2016

The Moor will be alive with some of the best sounds, moves and aromas Sheffield has to offer as part of the Tramlines Fringe this weekend. The Moor will be providing some amazing public art and performance - all free and to be enjoyed by all generations.

The Moor will become Fields of Steel, sponsored by City Taxis and activity runs from Thursday 20 - Sunday 24 July. Every day there will be street food traders for all tastes as well as an impressive scaffold bar made from corrugated iron with a bar below and DJ set above. Sheffield's best loved DJ's will play an eclectic selection of disco, funk, house, hip hop, garage flavours every day starting from 5pm on Thursday and then from midday to 11pm Friday and Saturday, concluding on Sunday afternoon at 5pm.

Also on the Moor on Saturday, 23 July will be a Young Music Stage featuring 19 year old local BBC Introducing artist & singer/songwriter Lizzie Goddard, and Sheffield Street Art/Dance 'SmashProof' group who will be performing live art and street dance jams from midday onwards.

On Sunday from 12-5pm, Tramlines Foundation has partnered with The Snap Project & Sadacca to bring local artists and choirs, African drumming and dance workshops - adding an international carnival theme for the day.
