Head down to ‘the workers’ stately home’ to join in the fun of this annual event, celebrating its 21st year this Saturday.

The South Yorkshire Festival’s aim is to “relive the good old days when communities were alive with the buzz of Miners’ Galas and May Day events.”

The beautiful hall, with its magnificent gardens, is run by a non- profit organisation and hosts the event with support this year from Unite the Union and the GMB.

The event runs from noon to 5pm. Entry is free with a £2 all-day parking proceeds with going to charity.

All the activities and entertainment are free once you are

at the event, including the rides.

Activities range from a Frozen Arena with Elsa and Anna , face painting, craft making, pony

rides, a chance to see birds of prey.

There is also a barbecue and beer tent.

There will be live entertainment from Unite Brass Band and the Branching Out children’s dance troupe, plus a bouncy castle and kids’ rides.

In the grounds visitors can browse more than 100 stalls selling gifts and crafts, plus community, charity and union stands.
