Woodseats Festival Needs Your Help

Welcome to the 11th Woodseats Festival.

We have an elephant theme this year to match the Children’s Hospital’s Herd of Sheffield Project which celebrates 100 years of Lizzie the elephant, who worked in the steel works during World War 1.

There are lots of events to attend over the weekend of 8th to 10th July, please click the link above to see the whole list.

Volunteers and helpers always wanted and welcome.




Can you host an event during festival week? We’ll publicise it here on the website, and in the festival programme, which is distributed to thousands of homes in the area. Contact to offer your support.

Traders & Businesses

Can you sponsor a festival event? Or why not open up to meet the crowds on the parade day? You’ll be mixing with S8’s finest!

Clubs & Societies

Do you run a club or society? Want to raise your profile and increase your membership? Why not book a stall at the festival’s family funday, or book a stall at the Craft/Vintage Fair…please contact for more details.


Can you help steward the festival parade? Want to get involved in organising festival events? Can you take memorable photographs for our website and posters?

The friendly Woodseats Festival Group meets regularly within Woodseats at the Abbey Pub

Why not come along and see how you can help?

We are very grateful to Woodseats Methodist Church for allowing us to use their hall for some of our events. Everyone is welcome!
