More than 1,000 people joined the Kelham Riverside celebrations last Saturday.

Niki Connolly, of Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust, said: “Sheffield is a city of seven hills, five rivers, but only one island and our visitors could learn all about the industrial heritage and the part played by the River Don, whilst enjoying what the island is best known for today, the real ales and fantastic community atmosphere.”
