Every week we come up with seven new ideas for what’s going on in and around Sheffield and sometimes further afield. If you want to publicise your event, email [email protected]
In these confusing and worrying times, local journalism is more vital than ever. Thanks to everyone who helps us ask the questions that matter by taking out a subscription or buying a paper. We stand together. Nancy Fielder, editor

2. Go online market shopping
If you’re looking for somewhere new to do online food deliveries, you could try the Moor Market.
Lots of stalls in the market are offering a click and collect service via www.ChefChef.store, offering food ranging from fruit and vegetables to meat, fish and delicatessen.
It is possible to order from several of the traders for a single delivery. Order by midday for next-day delivery.
3. Festival for fairer trade
Marking the start of Fairtrade Fortnight, the Fairtrade Foundation is set to unveil its first-ever virtual festival to highlight the harmful effect of the climate crisis on farmers and food supplies.

4. Watch show in virtual reality
South Yorkshire theatre Cast is live streaming Petrichor, a show designed to be watched on a virtual reality headset, smartphone or tablet.
Petrichor is set in a dystopian reality, where every moment is muted, managed and monochrome.
Excitement and happiness have been traded for a world without pain and suffering.
A chance meeting brings two unlikely individuals together and offers a small glimpse of what life could be.
