Sheffield city centre will be transformed into a stage for a series of musical performances to celebrate BBC Music Day on Thursday, 26th September
The University of Sheffield is hosting the fourth Sheffield Makes Music – an official part of the BBC’s annual UK-wide programme of events celebrating the power of music to change lives.
Sheffield Makes Music will weave musical sounds through the city centre including Fargate, Orchard Square and Castlegate showcasing the brilliant musical creators, contributors and talent Sheffield has to offer through a range of acoustic, choral, electronic and pop performances.
University of Sheffield alumni, Jon McClure of Reverend and the Makers, will form a one-off ‘supergroup’ – including band member Ed Cosens and Kweku Sackey of K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade. This special Sheffield/Ghanian fusion performance will end the day at the Big Yellow Bus on Fargate at 6.30pm.
This is a great opportunity for retailers who usually close by 6pm to extend their opening hours to support a vibrant atmosphere and capitalise on additional footfall
Sheffield Makes Music – which will run from 11am-7pm – is organised by the University of Sheffield in partnership with BBC Music Day and is supported by Sheffield BID, Sheffield City Council, Orchard Square, Yellow Arch Studios and The Leadmill.
