Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders and Richard Hawley are set to share a stage together in Sheffield in March – talking about their home city for a panel discussion.

The pair will take part in the 'My Sheffield: A Personal View' discussion at Sheffield Hallam University on March 2.

Also on the panel will be some fellow Sheffield residents - songwriter/producer Eliot Kennedy, artist Pete McKee (who has designed posters for among others Oasis) and broadcaster/writer Rony Robinson.

The event will raise money to help preserve the Minerva Frieze – the Godfrey Sykes art piece made in 1984 that is currently on display at the university.

During the talk the panel members will discuss the creative culture of their home city and how it influenced their own work.

"Sheffield is a very creative city that has produced a lot of talent, this is a good opportunity to celebrate and recognise that talent," Helders said. "I'm obviously aware of the other people involved so it will be great to share a few stories."

Arctic Monkeys have been announced as set to play a Teenage Cancer gig at the London Royal Albert Hall in March. They have also announced that they will release 'My Propeller' as their next single.
