Daredevil tightrope walker visits SHU

On 11 March, Sheffield Hallam University played host to Sarah Rixham, a Sheffield-born tightrope walker and current world record holder for the longest female highline, for a special feat between two SHU buildings.

Having travelled the world highlining some of the world’s most beautiful and risky locations, Sarah returned to Sheffield to help promote outdoor activities in the area, and to highline the best place of all: SHU!

Sarah said: “It’s a very special experience for me to finally get to highline in the city my slackline journey started.”
