Sheffield in Ruins with Denzil Watson : Yorkshire

This event is no longer available.

Living cities never stand still, but when their people move out, what relics are left behind? Denzil Watson has been exploring Sheffield’s discarded spaces for over 30 years, photographing the fragile splendour of city buildings whose future has expired – shattered edifices whose time has been and gone.

Sheffield In Ruins is a fascinating photographic record of Sheffield locations that once teemed with life, but that found themselves empty and unwanted as the city’s story moved on.

Join us tonight to meet the photographer and author of this new book. The talk will last about an hour.

The long light days, and hopefully some sunny weather give us lots of opportunities to get outdoors and summer is the season with our widest range of options for Spice events. We've got lots of social walks, including one this evening at Boston Spa. Our outdoor tennis sessions start this month. We've got outdoor theatre events too, which are a great fun way to watch a show and enjoy a picnic! Look out for the music festival in our programme, and tree-trekking too, and we have more outdoor events to come, so keep an eye on the website or Spice Social app!

The photo is the group on the Walk from Sowerby Bridge to Hebden Bridge and back last Saturday. It's great to see Spice members getting out and about in the sunshine, and we have many more day and evening walks for you in the coming months, as well as walking weekends and holidays.

Lots of Spice members are taking advantage of the long weekends to get away at the moment, with many of you visiting Anglesey last weekend and more still at Coniston. This coming weekend we have Coronation weekends in Portsmouth and Tenby. The photo here though is of the group having a wonderful time on the Transatlantic Cruise from New York on their stop in Bermuda. See the bulletin below for more chances to get away.
