Art & Culture
The Cooper Gallery is the place to discover stunning art in Barnsley. From a wealthy local linen family, Samuel Joshua Cooper journeyed throughout Europe collecting fine examples of art for the people of his home town to enjoy. Experience them now almost 100 years since the gallery was created. The variety of the different exhibitions mean there's always something to see and do for all the family. Find out what's happening, from tours and talks to art master classes and creative family workshops.
At The Civic, see a showcase of great performances and exhibitions. The Civic is proudly situated in Barnsley town centre and we feel it's important that we bring to Barnsley performances and exhibitions that make a stop in South Yorkshire whilst touring larger towns and cities across the UK and the world.
