Fox valley hits the right note with weekend of music!

4 August 2021

Fox Valley in north Sheffield will be hosting the two-day Valley Music Festival later this year with a packed line up of local talent taking to the stage. 

 

The event will run on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of September alongside the centre’s busy Farmers’ Market and Craft Market. 

 

This will be the third year that the team from Fox Valley have worked with the festival organisers and the first big event since one of the event founders, Steve Osborn sadly passed away. 

 

Steve was passionate about creating opportunities for young people to perform in Stocksbridge and worked with the Fox Valley team in 2018 and 2019 to bring the festival to the award-winning shopping centre.  

 

The aim of the event is to bring the musical community together to perform and raise funds to support young local musicians.

 

As well as local performers including Harmony Music School, Cocklebread and No Identity the two-day event will also showcase the work of the young people taking part in the band skills workshops held in August funded by the Festival and hopefully a taster if the work done from the the group creating a Community Musical for next years Festival.

 

Performances will take place in the piazza area and will run from throughout the day to 7pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sunday. A full schedule of performances will be published on the Fox Valley website closer to the date. 

 

Centre Manager at Fox Valley Claire Reynolds said: “We are so pleased to have the team from the Valley Music Valley Festival back at Fox Valley this September for this lovely weekend event. 

 

“Obviously we haven’t been able to host events of this kind for more than a year so to have these fantastic performers back at the centre is lovely. We’re working on a full schedule of performances in the bandstand and piazza area throughout the two days.”
