More Performance Opportunities

On Monday we had the WaterBear Sheffield Christmas Party at @washingtonsheff – and what a party it was! Complete with circle pits and people on each other’s shoulders, it was an excellent opportunity for students to let their hair (and mohawks) down and enjoy the fantastic lineup, consisting of @kid_blu3e / @mirela_music / @hsharpband and J Brown. Well done to everyone who performed, it was such a fun night and a great way to celebrate such a successful first term of WaterBear Sheffield.
