Sheffield has a rich and vibrant history of activism. Over the past few years, the Stories of Activism in Sheffield, 1960-present project has been conducting interviews with activists from around the city. The city centre and its immediate surrounding areas are an important part of their stories. Join poet River Wolton and others as we trace the City’s activist past and present through its buildings, landmarks and streets. The stories we tell will bring to life again—and update—the famous ‘Radical History Walk’. All participants are invited to add their stories as we walk, and contribute to the project’s growing collection stored at Sheffield Archives.
