Left Bank Leeds
Left Bank Leeds is an arts space in the Hyde Park area of Leeds. We’re based inside a beautiful grade II* listed church building and run a variety of different events and projects. These range from art exhibitions, to cinema screenings, to afternoon teas, to creative workshops and more!
We work hard to make our events engaging for a wide range of people but some events that might be particularly interesting are our monthly PAYF Afternoon Tea, our weekly yoga classes and our quarterly ‘Messy’ family craft events.
As part of our dedication to providing an open and welcoming we will be hosting an accessible day within each of our large scale installations. Groups will be able to arrange to meet Linda and have a tour around the installation with a chance to ask any questions about the installation or our building.
“Afternoon Tea has been such a great place to meet local people and to improve my English. I have loved talking to people who grew up in Leeds so I can find out about their lives, and I get to eat cake at the same time!” – Language Exchange Student.
We are part of Arts Together because we are dedicated to opening up our beautiful building to everyone who would like to access it.
