Sharron Sutton will talk about the development of the Museums and Arts service in Barnsley, and Paul Bennett will talk about the development of the new Library, somewhat controversially called Library @ the Lightbox.

Looking forward to our next dining club on Friday evening, 11th May. Get in touch with Rebecca or Phyllis if you would like to join in.
Each year South Yorkshire Industrial History Society holds the Joseph Bramah Lecture, sponsored by Barnsley Council, to commemorate the great engineer Joseph Bramah, who was born at Stainborough.
This year the lecture is given by John Bramah and its theme is ‘Bramah, a tradition of engineering’.
Barnsley Civic Trust has produced the Blue Plaque to commemorate Joseph Bramah and is promoting the lecture jointly with South Yorkshire Industrial History Society and Barnsley Council.
The lecture will be on Monday 19 March at the The Cooper Gallery, Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AH, starting at 7pm.
