How to Survive the Blitz and Other Things: A Survival Guide for People and Buildings
Are you a person? Do you ever spend time in buildings? If you have answered yes to both of these questions, it is extremely important that you attend the following workshop: ‘How to Survive the Blitz and Other Things: A Survival Guide for People and Buildings’. Come witness the threats that have befallen Portland Works throughout its history, and learn how they were overcome. Failure to attend may have dire consequences for you, your loved ones, and a significant portion of humanity. Snacks will be provided if deserved. Arrive on time.
Each theatre performance will last for approximately one hour and will involve walking throughout - around the factory building, up various flights of stairs and across uneven surfaces. Sensible shoes must be worn, and childen under 12 must be closely accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Immerse yourself in Sheffield’s industrial past and discover the creative revolution being led from within: join us as we turn Portland Works - Inside Out. Experience a unique multi-arts events programme, held at Portland Works - one of the UK’s oldest examples of a working metal trades factory.
