Underneath the Stars

Friday 30 July – Sunday 1 August


We will be making a special appearance at this year’s Underneath the Stars Festival and we can’t wait! Barnsley Museums will be asking festival goers a to help create a field of dreams. Everyone will be invited to add a pom pom dandelion to an art installation over the weekend of the festival. Later in the holidays it will be relocated to Cannon Hall to celebrate the Parks for People Programme and the Invasive Species Sculpture Exhibition in the beautiful gardens.
