Sharrow Festival

Sunny weather, an amazing atmosphere and live music, what more could you want? This year’s Sharrow Festival at Mount Pleasant Park in Sheffield had them all. Hundreds turned up with their dancing shoes on ready to embrace the free festival and all it had to offer. Not just about the music, the festival had a real community feel to it with various stalls and community activities to bring people together and lots of smiling faces to show that it had achieved its purpose.

A friend and I headed over to the music stage to catch the set of Jungle Lion , the last performing band on the main stage. Jungle Lion are a ska/reggae band from Sheffield described on their website as “a 5 piece brass section, a whole host of Bass riddled rhythm players and the Voice of the Rankin”. This band were perhaps the highlight of the festival for most, the crowd were up and dancing then cheering for more after the set had finished.
