5 Things To Do in Sheffield this Summer

The summer holidays are almost here and there’s all sorts going on around South Yorkshire. Looking for some ideas for how to make the most of your summer? There’s definitely something for everyone. Here’s our round up of the best accessible things to do in Sheffield this summer:

1. Support the Lionesses at a Women’s Euros Fan Party

Sheffield is proud to be one of the host cities for the Women’s Euros this summer. On all the Sheffield matchdays, there will be a free fan party on Devonshire Green, with food and drink, games and challenges, live performances and more. The parties are non-ticketed, so you can just turn up and join in the fun! Accessible toilets and viewing areas will be available.

Matchdays are: Saturday 9th July, Wednesday 13th July, Sunday 17th July, Tuesday 26th July. The parties start five hours before kickoff on each date. Full details can be found on the UEFA event webpage.

2. Catch an outdoor theatre show

Outdoor shows are a great way to take advantage of those long summer evenings. There are quite a few upcoming performances at different venues. Some can be pricey, but others are pay-as-you-can, so do look into the different options and see if there’s something for you. Many touring theatre companies do slapstick versions of traditional plays, which are perfect for a good time with friends and family. Be aware that the seating for open air performances is often on grassy fields.

3. Beat the heat by making your own lemonade

Kill some time in the kitchen by making your own summer beverages. Did you know that traditional lemonade is not the fizzy Sprite that we’re used to?

Follow this recipe to discover what real lemonade tastes like. So refreshing! If you’re feeling like an entrepeneur, you could even set up a lemonade stall and see if you can make a few pennies. Alternatively, why not try freezing your homemade lemonade into ice lollies.

4. Get cultured at an Out & About Weekend

There are four Out & About weekends happening in Sheffield’s Cultural Industries Quarter over the summer, each with a different theme. These weekends will be a celebration of different aspects of our diverse communities, involving workshops, food and drink, performances, art exhibitions and more.

Events will be based in the CIQ square on Brown Street in the City Centre and are free to attend. Be sure to check out the programme and see what catches your eye!

5. Come along to SHASBAH’s Party by the Lake!

The most important date for your diary is our annual SHASBAH summer party! We’re going BIG this year, with an outdoor activity day at Rother Valley Country Park. There will be accessible biking, boating and water activities, so bring a picnic and enjoy some summer fun at the lake.

Our whole charity events are always a great way to meet old friends and new, who understand what it’s like to live with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. We love our community!

Party by the Lake is on Saturday 6th August, from 10am-3pm. The entire day is free to attend and open to all SHASBAH members and friends, along with family members. Reserve your place by completing our booking form. We can’t wait to see everyone there.
