  1. Don't tell Tesco!, yes probably it will end up as another convenience shop.
  2. Graves Park funfair runs from July 30 to August 7. There are funfair rides in Sheffield City centre today and tomorrow in conjunction with the Tramlines event. Also at Crystal Peaks each Friday during the school holidays there are free children's rides. Sheffield by the Seaside returns next Thursday and Farrar's Funfairs are due to pay their summer visit to Hillsborough Park from 10 - 14 August.
  3. The one with the blue shutters in the row of shops just below Granville Road, has it closed down?, not seen it open for a few weeks. Think it is owned by Sea Fayre who were in the old market, them they moved to Cambridge Street and are now back in the new market. Shame if it has closed for good, they were nice fish & chips.
  4. Also Beighton Gala on Saturday and Ridgeway Carnival on Sunday.
  5. According to another site an application has been put in to turn it into a lap dancing club.
  6. Who ever books this type of event pays a non refundable bond to cover any ground damage. That is why sometimes events of this nature get cancelled at short notice. a few years ago Farrar's Funfair's left a mess at Rotherham as it rained heavy whilst they were there, i know for a fact they paid to put it right ( it was in the Star at the time). I would doubt though that there will be time to put it right before next weekends event which if this heavy rain continues could quite easily get cancelled.
  7. Some people moan about anything. It was free entry show and everything that was advertised was there, classic cars and scooters, arena events, music stage, fun fair, scarecrow making and more. There was plenty of people there yesterday when i went enjoying themselves. Another show next weekend in Hillsborough Park, Hillfest, lets see what people find to moan about this one!. It was never going to or intended to replace the original Sheffield Show if that is what people was expecting. As for £2.50 per ride that is an average price these days, but 1000's of money off vouchers for this fair were distributed all over Sheffield, so rides were cheaper if you used them.
  8. It was open recently but called Park Acadamey club or something like that.
  9. How long has the former Park Gardner's club been closed, just been past and noticed it is all boarded up.
  10. Today & tomorrow from 10.30am.
  11. Unfortunately due to wet ground conditions the fair will remained closed tonight.
  12. Usually no later than 9.30pm, sometimes earlier depending on the weather and how busy it is.
  13. We went on Tuesday afternoon and the boats were running, £2.50 per person.
  14. Farrar's Funfair returns to Endcliffe Park for their 2016 visit from June 10 -19.

  16. There is also a food fair in Peace Gardens and surrounding area.
  17. Farrar's Funfair are at Firth Park if that is any good to you for their annual Bank Holiday visit. Graves Park funfair is until the end of July.
  18. Is this on June 26th?, the same day as Hillsborough Park's big new event, Sheffield on Show and also Parson Cross Park fun day is on the same day. Plenty happening in the area hope the weather is good.
