THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A CULTURAL DESERT
The unruly child of a rebellious town.

Founded and run by Rachel Horne and Warren Draper; the team produce 4 print magazines a year that celebrates Doncaster’s culture, arts, style, music, people, fashion, lifestyle, architecture and even it’s coal-black underbelly with a circulation of 20,000. They curate and run Doncopolitan Culutre Crawl Festival and run Bentley Urban Farm.
Bentley Urban Farm (BUF) is an upcycled market garden based in Bentley, Doncaster. They are using reclaimed materials to turn a former horticultural training centre into a commercial growing project capable of providing affordable, fresh, healthy, local food whilst creating new opportunities for education, training, skill-sharing, employment and entrepreneurship.
The Doncopoliton blog will big up anything which has the potential to add to Doncaster’s metropolitan appeal… If you’re a local artist, writer, photographer, fashionista, socialite or social commentator, and have something you’d like to contribute to their site, then please get in touch with them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
