Welcome to the Dearne Playhouse

“The Heart of the Community”

The extensively renovated Dearne Playhouse was officially opened on July 15th, 2006 by the Dearne’s very own Brian Blessed and has rapidly become the Dearne Valley’s leading venue for shows, comedy, concerts, theatre productions, musicals, plays and functions — such as weddings and parties.

Formerly known locally for many years as “The Welfare Hall”, the Dearne Playhouse was given a £1M renovation in 2005, which was generously funded by the Arts Council.

Thank you so much for everyone who attended the Dearne Playhouse 22nd June 2013. If you’re a fan of R&B then you where at the right place last night.

So many of you travelled from afar and I thank you for that. You certainly reaped the rewards last night as there were so many fantastic tunes played. A few tracks being heard for the first time, discovered from the vaults but destined to be heard many more times.

Everyone one of the DJ's played great sets. You made Goldthorpe proud and put it in a positive light, post Thatcher the milk snatcher.

However, In this present economic climate venues such as the Dearne Playhouse need to pack them in to cover the running costs of the building. Whilst there were plenty people in last night I need a third more to cover the running costs and break even. As I’ve no intention of raising the door fee above £4.00. I’m considering making the 7th September 2013 charity event the penultimate one. We’ve had a great time and put R&B on the map in the Dearne Valley. Other clubs have followed and I’m delighted there are now, so many R&B events to choose from.

If anyone has any idea’s of how to survive' I’d be pleased to hear them. Post them on the site.

A big thank you to Des Pejko who did the door.

Dj's: Joe LakinEileen VaseyAndrew VaseyGraham WrightAllan Swires, Neil Firth.

Steve Mank and Sharon Rigby, who supply the equipment free of charge and like me are there at 18.30 and leave at 02.00. Dedication or what ?
