Collaboration with local faith groups about the culture of food and grief in the form of a free exhibition at the Samuel Worth Chapel and online. ‘Food & Grief’ is part of Sheffield General Cemetery Trust’s exploration of the site’s history through mourning traditions in Victorian society and our multi-faith community of today. The exhibition will feature brand new research from SGCT’s Burial Research Team.
Exhibition of photographs taken in Brincliffe Edge wood by members and volunteers of “The Friends of Brincliffe Edge Wood.” People caring for the wood. The wood through the seasons.
These 22+ historic frames have been handed down to the Nether Edge Art Group from the Kenwood Hotel. Most of them are gold coloured. They have been distributed to local artists and photographers to fill them as they wish.
The results will be on show during the Festival and then in local shops and coffee bars for the following month.
They will then be auctioned at the Kenwood Hotel on Sunday 17th October at 5pm. The majority of the proceeds will go to the restoration of Chelsea Park playground.
