The Tetley

The Tetley is a pioneering centre for contemporary art located in the stunning art deco headquarters of the former Tetley Brewery. We offer a warm Yorkshire welcome whether you’re here to see the latest exhibition of contemporary art, take part in a workshop or event, or sample our locally sourced menu with a pint of Tetley’s.

Our 1930s building was transformed in 2013 to house unique gallery spaces, a learning studio for our award-winning participation programme, an artist residency studio, offices for creative businesses, a busy Bar & Kitchen and welcoming spaces for meetings and events, from performances and parties, to conferences and meetings.

‘I’ve pushed myself to do activities with my children that I wouldn’t have previously done because of the amazing experience we had at The Tetley… it’s raised our confidence, enabled us to engage… found friendships and become more creative… wouldn’t have happened without the kind generosity of The Tetley… we couldn’t put into words how grateful we are as a group of young mums.’

We are part of Arts Together because… because we can reach more communities, children, families and celebrate the amazing work we all do and showcase what the city has to offer to new people.

    I am the Participation Producer at The Tetley. After graduating in Leeds in 2008, I am pleased to be living in the vibrant, multicultural city. My job involves working with artists to plan free workshops to more in depth projects like festivals, engaging with young people and creating art works with school children.
