No Bounds Festival: Various venues, 11 – 13 October
No Bounds festival returns for its third year this weekend, with another jam packed line-up of music, art, technology and dancing at various venues throughout the city. No Bounds is not your average festival and exists, in their own words, to explore ‘ideas of freedom and expression through the lens of club culture, art and technology.’ To check out the full line-up and purchase tickets, head over to the No Bounds website.
Dine Sheffield: Various venues, 10 – 20 October
Dine Sheffield returns to the city centre this month, offering food lovers great deals at over 40 restaurants, cafés and bars. The campaign will run between 10 and 20 October, in conjunction with Sheffield’s Off the Shelf literary festival – providing two fantastic reasons for people to visit the city centre this autumn.
In a slight twist to previous campaigns, new offer prices of £10, £15 and £20 have been introduced and this year’s eateries feature many regular supporters of the scheme, including Cubana and Forum, as well as Craft and Dough, Smoke, Sakushi, Pieminister and The Botanist, as well as several new restaurants including 200 Degrees Coffee, Piccolino, Street Food Chef and Wildwood. Six traders inside popular city centre food hall, Kommune, will also be participating.

Off The Shelf: Various venues, all week
