The Sheffield Blitz

by Janet Ridler

The Sheffield Blitz changed the face of Sheffield city centre for ever. Over two nights in December 1940 the bombs rained down, thousands of people were left homeless and hundreds killed.The landscape of Sheffield city centre was changed for ever, it would never be the same again.

This illustrated talk by Janet Ridler looks at how people lived, worked and played in wartime Sheffield, telling the story of the Sheffield Blitz through the people, places and events which form such an important part of Sheffield’s story, and looking at how today’s city centre has been shaped by those fateful nights over 80 years ago.

Janet is a local historian and councillor.
