Easter-Where to go in Sheffield for Students

Not sure where to go in Sheffield as a student over the Easter holidays? Easter break is a welcome one, before getting your head stuck into the books again and University work. We recommend our students to get out the flat and try out the different activities that are being organised in and around the city of Sheffield.

If you're interested in getting together and making things, then this is the festival for you this Easter. Easy and local to get to from the majority of Sheffield Property To Let accommodation as it's in Nether Edge - Sharrow area. There are lantern making workshops leading up to the festival. Past years have seen Daleks and sharks floating past, however, this year’s theme is ‘The Monster Mash’, so we expect some giant creations. The evening culminates in music, dancing and wonderful lanterns lighting up the skies. More information can be found here

Chatsworth ReopeningThings to do from Sheffield, Chatsworth, Derbyshire.

March 24th is the day that Chatsworth House reopens its bright shiny doors after a long period of restoration. This huge English baroque house is full of art and antiquities collected by the Cavendish Family, who still own the house today. The grounds and parks are glorious to walk through, and the fountains and waterfall are a delight to sit and watch. Look at all the things to do there this spring.

If you are looking to do something back at your apartment, then we have some ideas here for some Easter recipes plus some crafts and traditions you could do as a student
