Tigers on Hawley Street

The Sheffi eld Jungle stood

on Hawley Street through

the winters of 1910/11 and

show of wild animals and

bizarre entertainments. The

Sheffi eld Jungle Project

has looked at this event

and traced the context

and changes through

to present day.

Come alomg and listen

to Ian Trowell of

Sheffi eld’s National Fairground Archive

story book about it. The book tells the story

of a grandparent recalling the Jungle to his

believability and story-telling itself. FREE
