If you’ve been fearful about a coronavirus in the bleak midwinter than perhaps this will be a welcome distraction. In February 2021 (dates to be cconfirmed) we will see the first online festival all about and for the people of Page Hall.

Coordinated by the team from Migration Matters Festival and made possible by Sheffield City Council, a series of events created with the people of Page Hall will celebrate the diverse cultures and communities that call Page Hall home.

For this exciting new event to happen we need as many people from the community to be involved!

The coordinators are now calling on anyone and everyone to share something that can be a part of the festival (taking place either over one long weekend or two weekends) and feature the skills and talents of people young and old.

We are looking for anything from songs, poems, dances, films, performances, stories and any other talents you’d be proud to share with the community.

This is an opportunity to be proud of what the cultural richness that Page Hall offers and so regardless of whether you just want to try something out for the first time or if you’re a seasoned pro we want to hear from you.

To be part of this amazing cultural celebration of Page Hall send submissions to
