What’s on this weekend for kids in and around Sheffield March 3/4

Hey guys! Welcome back to the weekend roundups for what’s on in Sheffield. I took a little break after the bumper edition for February half-term due to moving house and all, but I’m hoping to be back in full swing for March. I’m currently writing this with a ton of snow outside and the forecast says this is only the beginning… so this weekend might see many of us snowed in. However! If you still want to go out and have fun there’s lots to do still and here’s some fantastic ideas. Wrap up warm and have a fantastic weekend! 🙂 What’s on this weekend for kids in and around Sheffield March 3/4
