Join poets Angelina D’Roza and Pete Green on a walk that spans Lady’s Bridge and the Cholera Monument, tracking central Sheffield’s intersecting lines of road, river and rail, scaling and exploring its iconic and historic sites, and reflecting on its status as a city of sanctuary, before reaching a hilltop terminus with near-panoramic views of Sheffield. Along the way, Angelina and Pete will introduce and read poems that illuminate this changing landscape.
The walk will start on Lady’s Bridge at 11am; please arrive in good time to ensure a prompt departure. The walk is moderately paced with gradual ascents, and will take approximately 2 hours (including several stops along the route).
Angelina D’Roza is poet in residence at Bank Street Arts. She is a writing mentor with the Koestler Trust, and volunteers as a shared reading facilitator. Her work includes collaborations with visual artists and sound artists, and her poems have appeared in a range of publications. Her debut collection Envies the Birds appeared from Longbarrow Press in 2016.
Pete Green is a Grimsby-raised, Walkley-based poet and musician who writes about coastlines, islands, railways, walking, love, whisky, underachievement, and getting lost. Sheffield Almanac, his debut poetry pamphlet, is forthcoming from Longbarrow Press. His solo albums include We’re Never Going Home and The Glass Delusion. Website: http://petegreensolo.com
