Mansfield District Council’s Cultural Services aims to bring local people together to feel proud and be inspired. Mansfield Museum celebrates the world around us and brings stories to life. Mansfield Palace Theatre is your home for entertainment and a place where you belong.
There’s loads to see and do – so please join in and get creative with us.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to be creative.
We know that care-experienced kids and young people need extra help sometimes to get involved in creative opportunities. GET THIS is all about us really getting to know what those needs are and helping looked-after children to be creative.
We want to learn more about our local fostering, adoption and care-experienced community so that we can design drama, music and dance activities with looked-after children in mind.
Mansfield Palace Theatre’s Zoom Youth Theatre
In normal times we welcome young people from the age of 8 to 21 take part on weekly drama sessions at Mansfield Palace Theatre. They are a fun way to meet new friends outside of school, grow in confidence and burn some energy. For the older ones it’s a chance to develop new skills in making theatre and create theatre of their own.
We are over the moon to be launching our new school brochure, which outlines our robust and secure plans to ensure that your pupils can continue to engage with local culture as part of their learning. The brochure includes creative, physical and educational work to support learning for all pupils within the primary range.
Write on or Write off competition
Some people will have seen 2020 as a write off. Yet, many positives have come from this time as we adapted, took up the challenge of the defeating the virus and found new ways of living and working together.
On the Write Track

Write Up Our Street!
Close your eyes, and imagine you’re walking from the Brunts corner at the edge of Toothill Lane down to the Market Place. Now journey down into the Market Place area and Stockwell Gate – what do you see?

Our local Sherwood Forest is alive with history, heritage, wildlife and legends. Some of the world’s most influential and historically significant people walked the streets we walk and lived amongst Mansfield’s people.
