Sheffield Publicity Department’s 16-stop photo tour
The Sheffield Publicity Department has already produced loads of good stuff, including their viewpoint guides and a tree rubbing kit. I finally got hold of a copy of their newest publication this week: a musical photo tour of the city.
Sheffield Music City was published in collaboration with Sensoria for this year’s festival. It’s a beautifully-produced guide to notable locations from Sheffield’s rich pop music heritage. Inside you’ll find photos of the defining landmarks and accompanying notes that tell the stories behind the locations – both fact and folklore.
I won’t spoil it for you, but as well as the household names, you’ll also find some of our less well-known music exports, all of which have been influential in their own genre and helped put Sheffield on the map.
You can pick up a copy Sheffield Music City for £5 from Rare’n'Racy and the Site Gallery.
