So it’s that time of year again when Tramlines takes over the city for a sunny July weekend, although this year is slightly different in that you have to pay to go to some of the venues. HOWEVER, there is tons of amazing free stuff happening. There is a great article from Counterfeit Magazine with more details, but some of the things we would recommend are below. If you have any other tips not to miss then do let us know!
- The Folk Forest @ Endcliffe Park – Saturday and Sunday (FB event)
