Forthcoming Events

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK IN BRANTON - Oh no it isn’t… Oh yes it is!

Kilham Hall Management Committee, sponsored and supported by Cantley with Branton Parish Council are thrilled to organise this year’s festive pantomime which will be held at Kilham Hall on Saturday 4th December. Doors open at 6.15pm and the show starts at 6.30pm, finishes at 8pm with a 15 min interval. Tickets are £3 each and include a selection box and drink for the children and mince pies and mulled wine for the adults. Tickets will be available from Saturday 20th November and can be purchased at the Premier Shop in Branton. Tickets are limited due to the seating and capacity of the hall and will be sold on a first come first served basis with a maximum of 5 tickets per family. You will need to present your ticket on the evening of the pantomime. We are hoping as many children will benefit as possible but all children must be supervised by an allocated grown-up. If this proves to be successful, we will look at organising more performances for 2022!

Carol's Around the Tree

Armthorpe Elmfield Band will be joining the Parish Council and residents of Cantley with Branton Parish Council on the evening of Friday 3rd December 2021 at 6.30pm for Christmas carols around the Glen Road tree.  Mince pies and sweets for the children will be provided. Please join us but remember to wrap up warm.

Kilham Hall Car Park Update

It has been agreed that the car park will remain open for park users, however as Kilham Hall is open again, when the hall is in use it will be for the hirers use (and their guests) only.  The Parish Council are currently considering permanent signage for the car park to ensure it is clear when the car park can be used.  The car park will open from 9am until 4pm each day, 7 days per week November to March.  This situation will be reviewed at each parish council meeting. 

We ask that you please take care when manoeuvring around the car park and drive at a maximum speed of 5mph. Users are asked to vacate the car park by 6pm to allow for the gates to be locked.

Police Drop In Session

The next Police Drop In session will be held at Kilham Hall Meeting Rooms on 19th January 2022 at 1.30pm.  Additional sessions for the New Year will be on 30th March 2022 at 6.30pm and 25th May 2022 at 1.30pm.


In line with government guidelines and DMBC's decison to reopen playgrounds the children's playground and items of equipment at Kilham Hall Park are now open. Please adhere to the guidance contained within the notices in order to protect the health and welfare of all users of the park.

Public Transport Services

Face coverings on public transport
From Tuesday 30 November, the UK Government has temporarily reintroduced the compulsory wearing of face coverings on public transport and in shops as a precautionary measure to help tackle the rise of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant. This means passengers must wear a face covering when travelling by public transport, in interchanges and at stations, unless exempt.
Operators and South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) will be doing all they can to encourage everyone that can to wear a face covering, to play their part in protecting themselves and other passengers. While they cannot enforce the law, they are looking at what more they can do - with the police and operators - to help people that need to use public transport to stay safe and travel with confidence.
SYMCA are asking all passengers to keep being kind, and to remember some people are exempt from the rules for health, age or equality reasons.
Customers must not travel if they have symptoms of coronavirus – a new persistent cough, a high temperature, or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – or if they have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace. Customers should stay at home and get a test.
The latest UK Government Coronavirus guidance can be found at
Customers should also follow the latest Government guidance to keep themselves and others safe when using public transport. Information is available at
How can you help?
Please remember it is your responsibility to comply with the law and help SYMCA to encourage people to follow the latest Government guidance. From Tuesday 30 November, passengers must wear a face covering when travelling by public transport, in interchanges and at stations, unless they have a valid exemption.
