About the Venue

Overlooking the pleasant Mandela Gardens in the heart of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, The Civic is a multi-storey, multi-purpose arts centre seeking to bring wide-ranging, contemporary artforms to appreciative audiences from Barnsley and beyond. As a proud supporter of the arts in South Yorkshire, The Civic showcases high-quality performances and exhibitions not usually associated with a centre of its size or regional location, and is instrumental in bringing world-class touring theatre, music and arts groups en route to larger UK cultural centres and other venues around the globe. Comprising a large auditorium, the Assembly Room - accommodating the best in UK theatre, dance, comedy, music, cabaret, independent and classic regional film screenings and family productions – in addition to a large art gallery ([email protected]), which hosts a wide variety of innovative and exciting exhibitions dealing with all aspects of art, design and craft. The building also has a large Panorama display and event space, working offices and several work hubs, as well as boasting a blend of historic and modern architecture enhanced by the adjacent Mandela Gardens. This public space was redeveloped in 2009 for the first time since the 1980s, and also includes facilities for outdoor performances. With something for everyone, The Civic is Barnsley’s destination for the arts, offering a warm and friendly welcome to all who visit our extraordinary venue.
