I love that every time I head into Sheffield city centre there is always something going on! Today in the Winter Gardens I happened upon the Festival of the Mind, and the stunning Veritafarm Circus aerial performers!
The Winter Gardens is a huge glasshouse full of trees, plants and flowers from around the world, with lovely tranquil bars and restaurants running along one side, and the lovely Millennium Gallery on the other. It is one of my absolute favourite places in Sheffield! I nipped in to give my new DSLR a whirl, and came across some giant blue scaffolding and stage. I joined the crowd to see what was occurring, and shortly afterwards four super-talented ladies put on an amazing display of acrobatics, aerial hoop and silks skills to the backdrop of the beautiful plants and trees, and the Sheffield skyline. I have always been fascinated by circus skills and aerial artists and dancers, and these ladies certainly didn’t disappoint!
Here are a few snaps I managed to get of their amazing performance!
