The Civic is a contemporary arts organisation in Barnsley which exists to provide Barnsley and the surrounding communities with a culturally significant voice. The aim is to present a progressive programme of festivals, exhibitions, performance and events that relate to the area, social, economic and political attitudes whilst also entertaining and encouraging debate.

The Civic also has an active presence in areas such as Hoyland, Cudworth, Wombwell, Thurlstone and Skelmanthorpe, with community theatre shows and art groups.

We aim to become the leading combined arts centre in the North of England with national recognition and to be cemented firmly at the heart of Yorkshire’s cultural offer.

We are passionate about people of all ages and backgrounds having access to the best possible arts and cultural experiences on their own doorstep.

This venue is part of the Barnsley Safe Places scheme.  For more information please visit:
