Myself and Labour’s Shadow Culture minister Kevin Brennan have been on a whistle stop tour of some of Barnsley’s fantastic cultural spots.
We visited the Experience Barnsley museum in the town hall. The new ‘Barnsley On Film’ exhibition brings together historical footage of Barnsley to give an insight into our town’s past. We then popped into the Elsecar Heritage Centre as well as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park that showcases art from around the world.
Culture builds pride in our communities and the creative industries are the fastest growing sector in our economy. It’s great that this is so well supported in Barnsley.
