Welcome to the Broomhill Festival Website.
We hope you enjoy browsing our updated site and agree that we have some exciting events lined up this year, the 42nd anniversary of the festival.
This year’s Festival will feature performances by Chorus UK a successful choir that is becoming increasingly popular for its concerts at the Sheffield City Hall. We will have some of our usual events that are becoming old favourites such as the Lunchtime Concerts as well as the Schools Concert and poetry and theatrical events. This year’s Artist is Kay Aitch who will also be running Art Workshops for us. Frances Gray will also be running workshops focusing on playwriting with a particular emphasis on Shakespeare this year being the 400th anniversary of his death.
Over the years the Festival has become a very important event in the life of Broomhill and without the support of the Churches of Broomhall and Broomhill we would not be able to give so much to the selected Charities. Since 1996 we’ve raised upwards of £220,000 all of which has been used to support our local community. Please give as much as you can again this year by attending the events and giving of your time and energy to ensure the Festival is successful for another year. Two people who have given much time and energy over the years are Eva Wilkinson and Derek Collins, two friends who have sadly died over the last year and they are remembered here.
We’re also still looking for volunteers to join our fantastic team- find out how here. We look forward to welcoming old and new friends to the festival in the coming weeks.
