Alumni and guests are invited to join the Cambridge Society of Sheffield for their annual lecture with guest speaker David Price.

Our speaker is David Price is a former senior civil servant and has written two books on local history - 'Sheffield Troublemakers ' (about local radicals) and 'Welcome to Sheffield - A Migration History.' The latter reflects his interest in the position of asylum seekers and other migrants. In this illustrated talk on 'How Sheffield became a cosmopolitan city', he will describe how, right up to 1945, Sheffield remained a very English city but since then people have come here from every corner of the world. He will discuss how well Sheffield, the UK's first 'City of Sanctuary', has coped with this profound change to its culture.
