THE new town hall gardens and fountains in Barnsley are to get a royal seal of approval.

The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, will officially open the newly-named Barnsley Pals Centenary Square on September 13.

People haven't waited to make full use of the new town centre feature, though, as hundreds have been showing up to play among the 30 weaving water jets.

They're already so popular extra seating has been installed to cope with the numbers.

Will you be heading down to its official opening?
