The City Talking
For our first A-Z issue in Sheffield, we asked our friends — people we’d featured in the paper — what they had enjoyed this past year, and what they were looking forward to in the next one. We then shared the questions with their friends, acquaintances and a whole bunch of people we’d never met but wanted to hear from anyway. Some of these people have always lived in Sheffield; others have travelled from far-away places to make the city their home. We’ve tried to talk to a diverse group of people from a wide range of sectors; artists, festival directors, CEOs, florists, musicians, wedding planners and picture framers have answered our questions.
The A-Z issue is compiled of hopes, dreams, memories — the ones you share as friends, colleagues and strangers in a city. Next year, we hope to include even more.

I went to a friend’s wedding at the back end of the year, it was a really special day. There is nothing finer than being surrounded by your friends with the sun out and a cocktail in your hand.

I’m travelling a lot this year, starting with New York in early March — it’s my first time in the States so that’s something I’m excited about. And riding my bike in summer is always an everyday highlight.
