Supported by Sheffield BID, The Fringe at Tramlines promises a packed weekend of entertainment including free outdoor stages at Devonshire Green and the Peace Gardens.
Streets Ahead prepare for busy weekend at Tramlines
Thousands of music lovers are expected to descend on the city between Friday and Sunday to attend Tramlines Festival, which will feature performances from 70 bands across 5 stages in Hillsborough Park, plus comedy acts, a pop-up cinema, an expanded family area and a food and drink line-up unlike anything the city’s ever seen.
As ever, Tramlines will be championing local talent and celebrating creativity in Sheffield, whilst showcasing major headline acts.
Over the course of the action-packed weekend, Highways contractor, Amey, will be busy keeping the venues and surrounding streets litter-free and ensuring suitable road closures are in place.
Last year, around six tonnes of litter was collected over the course of the Tramlines weekend and, whilst wanting revellers to enjoy their time, Streets Ahead wants to remind party-goers to use nearby bins so that everyone can continue enjoying the event.
Melissa Wise, Project Director for Operational Services at Amey said:
“We’re ready and raring to go ahead of this year’s festival. It’s one of the biggest challenges we face over the year in terms of street cleaning, but we’re prepared for the extra waste that will be created over the weekend.
“We have more operatives than usual working in the city centre over the period of the festival to keep on top of the litter. They did an excellent job of cleaning up during and after the event last year, despite such a large number of visitors both to Hillsborough Park and in the city centre.
“I’m sure we can achieve a great result again but we do ask that people be considerate and make use of the extra bins that will be in place over the weekend’s events.”
Extras bins will be placed around the city centre and will be regularly emptied by the Streets Ahead team. Litter pickers will also be around the city centre to help keep the streets clean.
