This year, Bonfire Night sees once again the annual After Dark fireworks festival in Sheffield. But, in an attempt to reach out to the hundreds of Chinese speaking students and residents of Sheffield and the University, the advertising includes posters which are also written in Mandarin.
The rationale according to organisers is that the Chinese have a real passion for fireworks (perhaps because they invented them!) and as the area’s, particularly around the University accommodation across the city, have a huge number of Chinese residents. Although the posters will also include English lettering, they are aimed at the mandarin speaking population in particular in and around Shalesmoor, London Road and Netherthorpe.
The After Dark event brings together live music, fun fair and fairground attractions, a HUGE bonfire and a 20-minute firework display in the evening on Bonfire Night, 5th November 2013. Usually attracting around 20,000 people, this is the premier display in the Sheffield Don Valley Bowl calendar.
