Discover the history of the Cooper Gallery, listen to the wonderful stories about Elsecar at the Iron Works and take a trip down memory lane or discover how Barnsley once was when Barnsley on film comes to the Lamproom Theatre.

On Saturday June 30, Barnsley History Day, celebrate at the finale of the Experience Barnsley Festival and celebrate Experience Barnsley’s fifth birthday!
