ARCHIVE : The Joy of Sheff

May 2013 saw the opening of ‘The Joy of Sheff’ exhibition, a one-day only event that drew 3000 visitors to the Blue Shed in Sheffield. Over 700 of those arrived via the 2p bus ride, an original 1960s bus that ran from the city centre to the exhibition and proved hugely popular throughout the day. Pete’s most successful exhibition to date was a celebration of all things Sheffield and those who live there, young and old, past and present;

‘Sheffielders are very proud of their city but also very self deprecating. This exhibition plays on both of those characteristics and will be very tongue in cheek. I want to play on the mythology of Sheffield, its proud heritage and its characters.
