MINES A PINTTickets and Venue

The Venue

The Rotherham Real Ale & Music Festival will be held at MAGNA Science Adventure Centre. The venue, on Sheffield Road, Rotherham, is about 20 minutes walk from the town centre.

From the M1 motorway, exit at junction 34 (the Meadowhall junction) and take the Rotherham road (A6178).

Powells will be running a special Festival Bus service between Meadowhall Interchange, the Festival entrance and Rotherham Interchange. It will alternate with the regular bus service, the X1 Steel Link which runs past Magna on Sheffield Road, combining to give approximately a 15min service to the festival.

There are connections with trams, trains and other bus services at Meadowhall and Rotherham Interchanges. You can download an X1 timetable from the Travel South Yorkshire website: X1 Timetable (pdf).
