  • Field & Sheffield Digital will host an outdoor festival, showcasing and celebrating what the city’s creative and tech communities have to offer.

    The Festival itself will take a slightly different flavour from last year, with most of the core activities taking place outdoors. However we are still very much focused on our theme of ‘Discovery’ and this has been embedded in our re-shaped Festival plan.

    Field & Sheffield Digital will host an outdoor digital festival around the city, showcasing and celebrating what our creative and tech communities have to offer. This will be achieved firstly through an Augmented Reality app, encouraging people to engage with multiple experiences as they work their way around Sheffield & Barnsley, and secondly through events and experiences (virtual or socially distanced) organised by individuals or companies during Festival week.

    More info coming soon.
