Talk: Council housing

Wed 24 Oct 2018, 7pm, Studio, University of Sheffield Students Union, Western Bank S10 2TG

John Boughton is the researcher and writer behind the website Municipal Dreams. He presents "Municipal Dreams: The Rise and Fall of Council Housing", a history of local authority housing in the UK, including Sheffield. He reviews the idea of state housing, through the Tory disaster of "Right to Buy" and controversial regeneration schemes. Good housing, he argues passionately, is vital for society.

Researcher and writer Richard MacLean Smith talks about his book "Unexplained".

"Close Quarters"

Wed 24 Oct-Sat 10 Nov 2018, various performances, Studio, Sheffield Theatres, Norfolk St, Sheffield S1 1DA

The world première of a play by Kate Bowen. Cormack, Findlay and Davies are the elite. They are the first generation of female soldiers to serve in the British infantry in close combat roles, ever. They’ve aced physical tests only 5% of female soldiers can pass; they’ve been trained to shoot, fight and kill. They’ve proven their exceptional skill and discipline – while everyone around them questions whether they should even be allowed to serve. And now they’re about to join the action.

A co-production between Sheffield Theatres and Out of Joint. Suitable for ages 14+. Contains strong language and sexual references. Box Office Sheff 2496000.
