Welcome to Barnsley Local TV
BLTV is produced by The Dearne Media Group which is a not for profit Community Interest Company using social media to promote the best interests of the Town and it’s people by highlighting personal achievements and showcasing the activities of the many community groups and voluntary organisations.
This site, in conjunction with BLTV’s Facebook page which is already in place, will feature a regular magazine programme called Focus, hosted by and featuring local people and activities. To be part of this please contact us on 01226 889446 or email email@example.com
In the meantime BLTV is pleased to show five films that we have produced which were funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund. These documentaries show the transformation of the Dearne Valley, parts of which were once described as the largest single area of toxic derelict land in the UK into flourishing environmentally friendly areas of housing, industry and countryside.

WHATS ON IN BARNSLEY
Barnsley Garden Party, a free family event, is a joint initiative between Barnsley Council and
multi-purpose arts centre Barnsley Civic – with the annual garden party adding The Glass
Works Square to the Mandela Gardens site and Cheapside to mark the first birthday.
The headline performance in the public square will see acrobats captivate the crowds by
balancing on, and inside, a rotating seven-metre-high hourglass.
Elsewhere, the festival includes a performance inspired by the brief life of the Mayfly, which
sees a custom-engineered structure incorporating five fountains shoot water into the air in
sync with two awe-inspiring dancers.
Houdini-style escape artists will be performing stunts, illusions and great comic routines.
Back Chat Brass, a fusion of brassy pop, funk and hip hop beats, help the festival kick off at
11am in The Glass Works Square. They’ll perform again later in the day and will also bring
their unique sound to Cheapside.
