Children's Capital of Culture
In 2025 Rotherham will become the world’s first Children’s Capital of Culture, designed and delivered by children and young people from the borough. 2025 will be a 365-day festival of imagination, creativity and community, created by 0-to-25-year-olds in Rotherham, for everyone. And the journey to 2025 has already begun, with Children’s Capital of Culture offering a huge range of inclusive skills and talent development opportunities, health and wellbeing programmes, and innovative creative festivals, events, and workshops for every child and young person in Rotherham to take part in.
Created by children and young people, for everyone. Right here in Rotherham. Coming in 2025.
365 extraordinary days. One whole year of imagination, creativity and community. Packed with music and magic. Dance and drama. Films and food. Exhibitions and events. And much, much more.
The journey starts now! Between February and June 2022, we want to give every child and young person in Rotherham a chance to help shape their borough's future. Get hands-on with creative activities. Be dazzled by performances and art. And join in making plans for 2025.
And we will also be using this time to give young people in Rotherham more life-changing training and skills opportunities than they've ever had before!
