Barnsley Council’s Arts and Events Team is following all guidelines issued regarding the current advice during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
It is with regret that we are announcing the postponement of all planned town centre events for the foreseeable future.
This means that we will no longer deliver:
- The April Fools Comedy Festival – more information about specific show cancellations here.
- Tour De Yorkshire – more information here.
- VE Day Ceremonies
- Game On! Gaming Festival.
- Barnsley’s Big Weekend – includes Mayor’s Parade, Pride and Destination Festival.
- Dancing Town.
As we move forward in the coming weeks we will monitor and assess the situation as it develops and release more information about the planned autumn/winter events programme.
We also encourage event planners across the borough to be mindful of the current advice issued by the Government and urge everyone to follow all guidelines about the delivery of events.
The team looks forward to bringing the event programme back to the public when it is safe to do so.
