Barnsley Homemade Christmas

After a few months of preparation and planning we finally unveiled our pop up shop and homemade christmas project in Barnsley town centre.

Our pop up shop was open for 4 days and during those days we saw lots of families and local groups come and join us in making their own christmas decorations and generally start to get in to the christmas spirit (All be it a little early).

We had hundreds of people participate in the project over the 4 days and we loved seeing everyone of them create and make their own christmas.

The feedback we have had has been so lovely and often we’ve been overwhelmed by what’s been said.

Thank you to everyone who has been to see us and got involved. We also want to thank Barnsley council for asking us to create and deliver the project. It’s been so special and we’re already looking forward to next years Homemade Christmas.
