As part of the forthcoming anniversary commemorations of the Sheffield Blitz we're hosting a special day in store on Tuesday 10th December. Local author, Neil Anderson, writer of the Countdown To The Sheffield Blitz book [click here to buy] will be in store launching the National Lottery Heritage funded Blitz Trail App. We'll also have The D-Day Darlings, of Britain's Got Talent fame, in store singing songs from the era as well as some festive songs for you to enjoy. And, finally, very special guest Brenda Spencer, who's father bought the last item from the store before that fateful night in 1940, she'll be bringing along the very teddy bear that was given to her as a Christmas present that year.

As an independent and individual family department store we're incredibly proud of our heritage, the city, its people and the events that have shaped us over the generations. We do hope you'll join us on Tuesday 10th December from 11am for what promises to be an unforgettable and nostalgic event.

The D-Day Darlings will be performing live at Atkinsons on Tuesday 10th December 2019
