Sheffield's best live bands and others from elsewhere, it has various sound-systems, stages and an open mic/ acoustic tent, a healing area, film tent, kids area, you name it!It starts at 12 and ends at 8, but there's always a pub to go to. And you never know, there might be a party nearby afterwards!
PRICE: £ FREE - but recommended donation £5! Proceeds to Chernobyl Children's Lifeline, Art in the Park and Ben's Centre.
Information regarding charities
Art in the park
“Ben's Centre is a drop-in day service for vulnerable street drinkers who may be homeless or live in poor accommodation and who now find themselves drinking regularly on the streets of the city centre. The centre is a 'damp' service, clients do not have to be sober to use the service but alcohol must be handed in and not drunk at the centre. The scheme offers free food and drink, shelter, showers, clothes Store, laundry, free telephone, recreational facilities, sign posting possible accommodation and housing advice services and more.”
Chernobyl Children's Lifeline “Chernobyl Children Life Line's main aims are to bring child victims of the Chernobyl disaster to the UK for recuperative breaks of 1 month, to provide on-going supplies of multi-vitamins and basic healthcare products to the children on their return, to locate children who are in need of recuperative care, to help children too sick to travel and provide support with medicines and equipment and bring over children to the UK for long term medical care and education.” Website link for the festival.

Are you on some sort of commission???
Well i will make 1
Cake - sounds good but think I'm gonna be away that weekend unfortunately!
Sounds a bit like Sheffield Unplugged which I went to a couple years ago, basically a 2 day mini festival on Dev Green for local unsigned bands. Didn't happen last year though, don't know why, it was great.
Commission why yes as you ask, I'm one off about 100 people who run it Got the tinternet back hurrah!
Stuart reason by the unplugged wasn't on this year was the devonshire green being a building site. The p in the p is exactly the same but bigger, has lots of other stuff for kids and has signed bands as well. It's well worth a look in and you get to see me drunk later on the evening?
Exactly know it's a shock but some of us like it that way
Come up, live a little and see what like is live without 100 call girl cards in each phone box. I'll even buy you a pint?
Do some of the dogsbodying and general roadie stuff, I'm a very small cog in a big machine. Will e-mail you the adress for demo's, but the deadline line for the line-up was 2nd May. Get them to send it anyway they might get lucky or might get passed on to some off the other crazy kids who do stuff later on in the year.
Hi just letting you know the line up is sorted and vodka, gin and sambuca is really to be drunk.
This is a map of how to find the Ponderosa if you're travelling in by tram for TOMORROW'S! fabulous free festival::
The "A" on the map is Netherthorpe tram stop, then the big green field to the North West is the Ponderosa Park.
For anyone who will be travelling in to Sheffield by train, when you get off the train, go to the tram stop at the back of the station and get a tram on the near-side track to the station, then you need to get off at Netherthorpe station, it's only about 12 mins journey. Netherthorpe tram stop is the next stop after the university stop. If you've managed to get hold of one of our flyers, Stagecoach have kindly agreed that you can use each flyer to get a discount for up to 4 people on the return tram ticket.
It was great! Best one yet and should have given a lot of money to charaty
But the bad news is still have the hangover now
For anyone interested there are photo's of this years peace on ficker (or whatever it's called) which can be accessed via the peace in the park website below if anyone went and has got a photo feel free to add it or e-mail peace in the park with the photo.
