Event Details

Guided walk: Little Chicago

Following the success of the 2023 guided walk, events at the forthcoming Sheffield Steel City Beer Festival will include a guided historical walk in Sheffield's Little Chicago Quarter. We will explore both the pub heritage aspects of the area plus the streets which feature in the book, ‘Sheffield 1925: Gang Wars and Wembley Glory,’ with a narrative explaining how Sheffield briefly became the most turbulent city in Britain because of an escalating gang war involving the Park Brigade, Mooney Gang, the Gas Tank Gang and many others.

The short walk will also explore the beer, social and Industrial heritage of the area, examining the myths and reality of a tumultuous year in Sheffield history, before finishing at the Beer Festival.

The walk will be led by local historian and writer, John Stocks and ‘Sheffield’s Real Heritage Pubs’ editor, Dave Pickersgill. It will also act as a launch walk for the new Sheffield Pub Heritage walk booklet, which features Little Chicago (A5, 32 pages).

Meet 11:30 outside the Sheffield Combined Court Centre, West Bar, S3 8BH
