Lord Mayor to Visit Darnall Carnival on Saturday
The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Cllr Peter Rippon, will visit Darnall Carnival at 1pm on Saturday. He will be met by children from Greenlands School, who will lead him into High Hazels Park where the event is taking place from 12 till 5. Attractions include an array of music and dance artists, Elijah, Immi, Raxstar, Rita, the Romano Jilo Dance Group, Shak Illmatik, Shide Boss, SunAash and TazZ, as well as stalls, rides, information, food and other attractions.
The event is organised by the Friends of High Hazels Park with the support of Darnall Forum and funding from Awards For All, British Land and Meadowhall, Sheffield Town Trust, J G Graves' Charitable Trust and Darnall Area Trust Fund.
Last year 5,000 people visited the Carnival and if the threat of light rain showers holds off, similar crowds are anticipated again, with the largest attraction being the afternoon performance by some of the UK's leading Bhangra music artists. However, there will be plenty to do for all the family.
