What’s on this weekend in and around Sheffield for kids March 2-3

Hello and welcome to the first weekend roundup for March! If you’re a regular reader of the weekend roundups, you might have realised there was no weekend roundup last week. This is because it was half term! Half term and school holiday guides are a bonus feature and cover the entire week (or more) including weekend. We’re back to normal now, though, so let’s get started!

What are weekend roundups? Weekend roundups are published every Wednesday during term-time & feature top picks for family friendly events, day out ideas and things to do for the upcoming weekend.
