The Joy Of Sheff

Saturday 22 April 2014

May 2013 saw the opening of ‘The Joy of Sheff’ exhibition, a one-day only event that drew 3000 visitors to the Blue Shed in Sheffield. Over 700 of those arrived via the 2p bus ride, an original 1960s bus that ran from the city centre to the exhibition and proved hugely popular throughout the day. It was a celebration of all things Sheffield and those who live there, young and old, past and present;

Alongside paintings and illustrations were unique sculptures, films and merchandise- including an exclusive Joy of Sheff ale- and where would McKee be without Henderson’s Relish? The most expensive bottle in the world, covered in diamantes, was sold at the exhibition. The centerpiece of the space was Joy, a life-size McKee character who now resides in A Month of Sundays.
