As South Yorkshire moves into Tier 3 restrictions, Barnsley’s Lamproom Theatre has postponed its planned re-opening. One week after putting tickets on sale for performances in November 2020, the Trustees of Barnsley Theatre Trust (1998) Limited have taken the difficult and disappointing decision to postpone all planned activity at The Lamproom until the review of the restrictions takes place in mid-November.
There has been a promising start for tickets for shows in November at The Lamproom, but we must remind anyone wishing to book tickets that, under Tier 2 restrictions, you can only book tickets FOR YOUR HOUSEHOLD. If you are wishing to attend with people from another household, they must book their own tickets as we need their details in order to comply with the Track and Trace regulations that are mandatory for all venues. We hope that everyone understands that we are insisting on this procedure to keep everyone safe and to ensure that we are acting in a responsible manner by adhering to Government instructions at all times.
After being closed for seven months, Barnsley’s Lamproom Theatre will open it’s doors again on Friday 6th November 2020. Theatre goers around the country have been longing for the day when they can visit their local theatre and experience live performances once again, and the people of Barnsley will soon be able to do just that, as The Lamproom will re-open with a show which was originally planned for April 2020 – ‘An Evening with John Kelly’. The following three weekends will see more to entertain and cheer at The Lamproom. Read on for information about our November productions.
During the past few weeks, plans have been put in place to try to open The Lamproom Theatre (Socially Distant - of course) within the next few weeks. We are hoping to be able to make an announcement in the next day or two. This will mean the end of 'The Lamproom Daily' as we will be back in the office - we hope that you have enjoyed our daily news and information service during the past 204 days . All news about our potential re-opening will be on our website, Facebook page, Twitter page and in e-newsletters that will be sent out to everyone on our mailing list - we hope to be able to welcome you all back very soon - watch this space!
Looking back to just before lockdown (was it really seven months ago?) - The Lamproom Theatre Company performed 'A Bunch of Amateurs' by Ian Hislop. There were some familiar faces, and some not so familiar - did you enjoy the show?
Last week we published a poem by Lamproom regular Ken Brookes of Darfield - this week he has given his permission for us to give you details of his published work 'Poems In Lockdown' His book is available to purchase in the Maurice Dobson Museum, Darfield. It is £5 and the introduction is by Ian Mcmillan. Why not call in and buy a copy? You'll be supporting a local 'treasure' - what's not to like?
Our own Jack Land Noble and Robert Cooper - a.k.a. The Coalfield Symphony - have just announced the upcoming release of their debut album, VIRTUE & VILLAINY.

Just over a year ago, Lamproom audiences enjoyed some comedy from the writer and star of Mrs Brown's Boys, Brendan O'Carroll. The Yorkshireman Company performed 'The Course', featuring a whole host of Lamproom favourites - Mark Olsewski, Gemma Williams, Ryan Howe, Richard Caile, Richard Wood, Mick Cooper, Sally Moxon and, of course, Jack Land Noble. What a cast, and what a great play - it was enjoyed by everyone and was a hug Box Office success.

During the past six months or so, many of us have turned our hand to new things and found undiscovered talents. One of these people is a long-standing supporter of The Lamproom who is a regular and valued patron - Mr Ken Brookes of Darfield. He has, with the help of the wonderful Ian McMillan, become somewhat of a poet, and he has given his permission for us to share a 'lockdown' poem with you - what do you think? In the garden we stand and stare Across at each other we smile Still trapped in our beautiful lair It's more than two metres, it could be a mile. The schoolchildren are feeling wasted It's not really easy doing home schooling Missing exams they have never tasted A lot of time spent like a jester, fooling. We spend Midsummers Night dreaming How can we bring this to an end? Thinking, plotting and scheming And shouting across to a friend. Is this much ado about nothing We are finding it difficult stopping.
The Lamproom Musical Theatre Company has been part of The Lamproom 'family' for many years, but did you know that it was previously The Co-Operative Operatic Society and has a long and proud history of producing high-quality musicals in Barnsley? Before changing it's name to The Lamproom Musical Theatre Company and having it's 'home' at The Lamproom, the group performed for many years at The Civic in Barnsley.
Back in 2006 The Lamproom Musical Theatre Company had a day at the races - but do you know which musical they were performing? Can you recognise any familiar faces fourteen years on?
