A unique setting for events, Experience Barnsley has a range of spaces for hire including the Learning Lab and galleries. With flexible catering options and a full bar service available, Experience Barnsley could be the perfect setting for your event.

The Learning Lab is the perfect space for lectures, meetings, courses, workshops and birthday parties. A self-contained space, the Lab has a capacity of 60. The Gallery can be hired for out-of-hour’s events including drinks receptions, product launches and business entertainment. Guided tours are also available if required.
