The Missing Minute: Time Leak      A free-to-play adventure for the whole family.

“Sheffield is running out of time! Can you repair the clock and save the city?”

Sheffield Town Hall Clock Tower is 5 minutes ahead of the rest of the world. 124 years of being ahead has created a rift - a time leak across the city. Time from other worlds are leaking through the shiny surfaces of the city and muddling with our own. Strange things are happening. Sheffield’s finest clockmaker needs your help to put it right!

This is a free, outdoor pop-up festival in public spaces, partnering with museums, venues and independent retailers to build a map of playful activities between venues across the city centre. It is an accessible experience for visitors to move through the City Centre discovering new experiences to play in different venues and locations. Players will collect a ‘playsheet’ from a mix of outdoor central locations and indoor venues, which encourages them to visit and search specific areas and then play a variety of activities.

The event runs Saturday 11 - 5 and Sunday 11 - 4, so shifts will start at 9am or 1pm.

Volunteers will be:

  • Manning the stalls and registering participants
  • Running games - it might be a physical game, or observation challenge, or a videogame - there’s lots going on!
  • Demonstrating the games (you get to play them too!)
  • Stamping players cards for each ‘second of time’ they collect.
  • Helping us manage the flow of people, by setting ‘interruption’ tasks.
  • Answering questions from the public, all information/training will be provided
