BARNSLEY Museums have been shortlisted in the prestigious Fantastic for Families awards.
Now in its ninth year, the award is an annual programme open to UK-based cultural organisations who provide opportunities to older or family audiences.
Barnsley Museums were nominated for the audience impact and innovation award, which recognises the achievements of organisations who have demonstrated innovation to reach and make a difference to families in need.
Coun Robert Frost, cabinet spokesperson for regeneration and culture, said: “We are delighted to have been nominated for this award.
“We understand the importance of culture in our communities and how it can have long lasting, positive impacts.”
