Sheffield Tramlines Music Festival 2017 at Peace Gardens /

Sheffield is holding it's annual Tramlines Music festival weekend (Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd July), with music stages situated not just across the city centre but across many of Sheffield's best parks, pumping out music to cater for all tastes, and you don't have to pay for expensive wrist bands to enjoy the Tramlines experience as there are many free stages across the city such as in the Peace Gardens which we visited Saturday amongst other venues. Here's how the Peace Gardens music went down, where the crowd was about half that of last year, probably due to a poor weather forecast for Saturday. And remember that Tramlines continues Sunday across the city for its third and final day.

Are Sheffield's High Rise Tower Blocks Safe? Grenfell Cladding Fire Disaster / Sheffield Local Issues

The residents Grenfell Tower have paid the heavy price for the cladding refurbishment craze that has been sweeping Britain for the past decade. One of 30 to 50 year old social housing tower blocks, many of which that should have been demolished but instead are being dolled up with cladding and insulation to reduce energy costs to make them externally more appealing to both residents, visitors and most importantly nearby affluent areas as was the case with Grenfell Tower, a pocket of social housing in Kensington, probably the most affluent area of Britain.

Britain has over 4,000 similar tower blocks across the land which has triggered city councils to in a panic start checking the materials used to refurbish and clad their own tower blocks. Sheffield has over 100 tower blocks across the city, many of which have recently been refurbished with exterior cladding.

So are Sheffield's High RIse Flats Safe?

Are Sheffield's High Rise Tower Blocks Safe?

And how many more Grenfell's until the local authorities arrive at the logical conclusion that most of the tower blocks built during the 1960's 70's need to be torn down and rebuilt.

EU Referendum- Migrants, Benefits and BrExit / Sheffield Local Issues

A documentary about Sheffield that Channel 4 did not have the balls to make. I am sure you have all been enjoying being entertained by Channel 4's highly scripted fantasy picture of Sheffield, one of everything smelling of roses, literally singing, dancing and skipping in the streets as the viewers are led down the proverbial garden path that mostly ignores the crisis inducing consequences of 15 years of out of control immigration courtesy of the last Labour government that baldrick-esk had a cunning plan to import millions of new Labour voters from eastern europe so as to bolster their election chances.

Therefore this video will act as an antidote to Channel 4's scripted trips from London to Sheffield.
