Changing Gears Festival from 5:30pm


Furnace Park
Doncaster Street
Sheffield, S3 7BD


Theatre Delicatessen and the University of Sheffield are staging a weeklong festival that combines theatre, arts and cycling to welcome the Tour De France to Sheffield during the first week of July 2014. Headlining the festival at Furnace Park will be an outdoor performance of Theatre Delicatessen’s groundbreaking production, Pedal Pusher.

Changing Gears festival deconstructs The Tour de France, exploring its meaning from diverse perspectives that are “not about the bike”. As well as featuring Pedal Pusher, its programme includes a series of community-based art and performance workshops spanning sculpture, poetry, spoken word, film-making and theatre.
"In Pedal Pusher what Theatre Delicatessen managed to do with a couple of plastic chairs and some cycling shorts was pretty spectacular."
Critics’ Choice of the Year 2009 - Time Out
"This very, very physical theatre show does justice to the toughest sporting event in the world, the Tour de France, with a muscular production that’s quite exhausting, in a good way, to watch… nothing short of ingenious."
