Right Up Our Street

Right Up Our Street is a network of people across the borough of Doncaster creating and being a part of brilliant art and culture.


About Us


Our Mission

Right Up Our Street was formed in 2014 and is a 10-year project – funded by Art Council England’s Creative People and Places programme. Creative People and Places is about more people choosing, creating and taking part in brilliant art experiences in the places where they live. From the outset we have held a firm belief that if Right Up Our Street was to succeed our programme needed to be a dialogue between communities, artists and the core team.

Our Values

The Right Up Our Street brand signifies what we believe in and value:

  • Being authentic in how Doncaster is reflected in the borough’s cultural offer

  • Developing creative opportunities that are open and welcoming to all

  • Adding value and new cultural experiences to the people who live in, work in, and visit Doncaster



Our Impact

Over the last six years we have engaged participants and audiences in five key areas in Doncaster:

Mexborough, Bentley, Balby, Rossington and Thorne



Throughout Doncaster from April 2013 to March 2019, to choose, make, see and share great art.



OF our festival audiences

Said that the DN Light Festival event was very good (75%) or good (23%)



of our participants

Prior to engaging with us, felt they hadn’t accessed arts activity in the last 12 months.

November 2018

People in the community are expressing interest in the arts and in events, and asking what’s next? I cannot ever remember a event in Doncaster that brought so many cultures and faiths together.
