Tramlines Fringe

The Tramlines festival takes place in Sheffield each summer (although it was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic). The first event took place in 2009 and was a free-to-attend event for several years, although it has now become corporately run and ticketing is in place for the main festival, which is held in Hillsborough Park. The festival attracts big-name artists and is named after the city’s tram network, SuperTram.

Although a paid ticket is required for the Hillsborough event, there are a number of free entry venues scattered around the city under the moniker of Tramlines Fringe. The photos in today’s post were made at one of these events, held outside the Dorothy Pax bar at Victoria Quays.

Music and dancing take place
It’s time for Tramlines

Before the band began to play
Watching the band
And the band begins to play
