A two hour guided tour/walk around Sheffield city centre to look at the wealth of sculpture, especially the legacy of post-war optimism.
Starting with Alfred Drury's statue of King Edward VII in Fitzalan Square, a significant work of pre-first world war sculpture, then moving on to later works such as William Mitchell's mural on Burgess Street, which The Twentieth Century Society put forward for possible listing.
A table will be booked at Bill's Restaurant in Paul's Place, near the Peace Gardens for those who would like to have lunch after the walk, please indicate on your booking form to confirm your place. Please note the cost of meal is not included in ticket price.
