THIS EVENT IS RUN BY THE SHEFFIELD FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY AND WILL TAKE PLACE AT HILLSBOROUGH STADIUM (S6 1SW). ADMISSION TO THE FAIR IS £2.00.
Come and see us at the Family History fair where we will be on hand to talk to you about Wardsend, answer your questions, and help you find information about burials and family history.
The fair is held on the same day as our Riot tour with Hugh Waterhouse. Visitors are welcome to join us at both events as we are only a short distance apart!
