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.

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.

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.

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.

Are you a local business that wants to support the Children’s Capital of Culture 2025 and get involved? Contact us via email to find out more.
