Barnsley by the Sea

Barnsley Town Centre

Roll up, roll up, roll up your trouser legs and bring your buckets and spades, sun-cream and shades. Every Wednesday throughout the summer holidays, the markets area will be turned into Barnsley’s very own beach – complete with sand and deckchairs.

Sand drawing. Sandcastle building. Balloon decorating and making flags, kites and festival head-dresses, there are plenty of activities to keep the kids happy, with free summer-themed drop-in sessions every Wednesday from 26th July to 30th August, between 10am and 2pm, delivered by the Barnsley Museums Learning Team.
