Welcome to NovaCity Barnsley.

Our second centre opened in 2017. In traditional Nova style, we found a building that had been abandoned for over 20 years and brought it back to life. The building is always evolving, becoming the home of Nova Arts early on, which provides post-16 training and education in Performing Arts. 

Barnsley was developed to run a little differently than Rotherham, focusing more on free play open sessions, than structured lessons. All the Nova facilities are here though. A bespoke Parkour park, Spring Floor, Dance Studio, and now with the addition of a Trampoline Park and soft play area. The building is open 7 days a week.


NovaCity uses its own app for bookings. Please head to you app store and search for NovaCity.

Mini Ninjas

The starting point for your energetic little ones climbing and jumping about the place. We replicate aspects of our Parkour park using soft blocks, balance beams, and crashmats allowing for a safe experience. Parents are also invited to get involved and participate with their children to enhance the experience.


The activity has its own level systems with sticker books to monitor progress. We aim to build the skills and harness the creativity that younger minds have to prepare them, as they grow, for access to the big park.

This activity is for children able to walk, run, and climb independently.

Max age = 5 to 6

Celebrate your special day at Barnsley.

Book a party with us and you get access to all the facilities including the Parkour Park and Trampolines. These parties are supervised by our staff in an open session format. Groups are brought together for briefings, meals, cake celebrations, singing, and photo opportunities.

Booking needs to be 1 month in advance to secure your date.

For more info on Parties click here

School Groups

We provide opportunities for schools to visit and participate as part of physical education sessions and rewards.


We can also send our staff out to your school to deliver our activities there. This is usually done in blocks of 6 classes over a term.

These sessions can be built bespoke to your needs.

These sessions are different from our Alternative provision offer, which also provides classroom-based and vocational education and qualifications.

Private Hire

Are you a club in need of facilities? We might just have the answer. Outside our regular timetable, there is the opportunity to hire spaces such as the Spring Floor. We have had multiple cheerleading schools utilise the floor over the years. We are also open to the facility being used for film and media projects, as well as private events with similar companies and arts.


We like to collaborate with projects and can enter into revenue sharing if you want to set up your own activity.

Please get in touch with us via email - for any inquiries.

Prices are based on per-hour rate with discounts applied to block bookings.
