The Library @ The Lightbox is a new innovative community space, offering activities for all ages with quiet zones for study and reflection.

It will light up the centre of Barnsley, with its striking glass design providing a stunning focal point for the town.

STREETS
AND SQUARES

An £8.5m regeneration programme is underway to transform the town centre’s public realm.

This not only includes development of a new public square, but also improvements to surrounding areas. The Glass Works square will create a welcoming location in the heart of the town for people to meet and discover the best of Barnsley.

Market Kitchen

MARKET KITCHEN IS LOCATED ON THE UPPER FLOOR OF THE MARKET HALL AND WILL PROVIDE A BRAND NEW EATING EXPERIENCE FOR BARNSLEY.

Market Kitchen is the new food offering located on the upper floor of the new Market Hall. Three of the traditional market cafés are already open and serving up their market favourites, while a range of other food stalls will be bringing a new offer next year.

NAMED THE UK’S BEST INDOOR MARKET BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH MARKET AUTHORITIES, BARNSLEY’S AWARD-WINNING MARKET PROVIDES A UNIQUE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE.

Barnsley Markets marked the first major milestone in the town centre redevelopment. The markets have been at the heart of the town for centuries, which is why The Glass Works scheme put them front and centre of the plans. The refurbishment of the old Metropolitan Centre brings both the markets under one roof – offering a bright, spacious, accessible and contemporary environment.
