Inside the Circle of Fire: A Sheffield Sound Map

Artist Chris Watson has recorded the sound of Sheffield, from its woodlands to its industrial heritage.

The way in which the sounds cross over is almost like you are moving between soundscapes. At times it’s relaxing, at others entertaining—such as the goal celebrations from rival football grounds.

But I feel a little sorry for the gift shop workers listening to the same half hour loop for months on end.

This walking play on the Kindertransport is on tour in major train stations to mark the 75th anniversary.

The Kindertransport brought 9,500 children from Nazi Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia to safety in Britain.

It began on 2 December 1938 when the government finally agreed to allow the children entry.
