Description: A new pop-up museum will be unveiled on the football grounds in July, with video stories, interactive displays and artefacts dedicated to the history of Rotherham United. Celebrate the team, female football players, and Arthur Wharton, the first professional black football player who began his career in Rotherham. The launch will see children and young people from schools and community groups around Rotherham come together to perform a 32-step dance routine in honour of Arthur Wharton.
Description: A dramatic public sculpture will appear in Rotherham overnight this July, changing familiar spaces and bringing wonder and joy while asking questions about who we are and our place in the world. Visitors will also have the chance to get hands-on with free, drop-in craft workshops. This breath-taking installation has been designed by international production studio Kaleider in collaboration with a group of Trainee Creative Producers aged 16-to-25 from Rotherham.
