In 2025, Rotherham will become the world’s first Children’s Capital of Culture. It’s a big title for a borough with a big dream.
Our journey to 2025 took off in February 2022, celebrating Rotherham’s incredible culture creativity, and community with a week-long Children’s Capital of Culture launch festival, created together with young people in our borough.
And it doesn’t stop there. Between February and June 2022, we want to give every child and young person in Rotherham the chance to get involved in designing the Children’s Capital of Culture programme, and play their part in shaping the borough’s future through a colourful series of events, workshops and collaborative opportunities.
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, that will make a lasting impact on them and on our borough.
Are you ready to become Children’s Capital of Culture 2025? Together, we will make Rotherham a place that young people are proud to call home.
