Peace in the Park is 5! The festival started as a positive peace protest in 2003, at Devonshire Green, and has been moving and growing ever since.
Due to the huge attendance of last year’s festival in the General Cemetery, Peace in the Park will be moving to Endcliffe Park, Ecclesall road where there is enough space to pack in even more music, people and fun!

This year will also see the exciting new arrival of a creative women’s area and youth stage showcasing Sheffield’s up-and-coming talent.
There will also be a kids area, a range of healers and alternative therapists offering their skills, stalls selling their weird and wonderful goods, international food, campaign stalls, exhibitions, a film tent… could you possibly want anything more?!
All this action is for a great cause too. Money raised from the event will go to ASSIST (refugee aid) and STEPPING STONES (education and support in the Niger Delta). Peace in the Park has previously raised money for Heeley city farm, The Archer project, GOAL Sudan, and WaterAid.
Peace in the Park is a FREE festival which aims to promote peace and understanding through artistic, musical and vocal expression, bringing together communities to deliver a message of peace through creative action.
We rely on volunteers and donations to make this event happen so if you feel you could help then please contact us.
