The vision and hard work of dedicated volunteers have transformed a redundant Victorian school house into a valuable asset for the residents of Leyburn and the surrounding villages. The aim is to provide a place for locals and visitors to come together, in a welcoming atmosphere, to enjoy art in its many forms: Music, Painting, Dancing, Film etc., or even just for a cup of tea and a chat. Although our volunteers give their time and effort freely, we have rent to pay and other financial outgoings, therefore can only continue to exist if we receive the support of local people and businesses; as customers, patrons and volunteers. We offer: rooms for hire, a cinema, regular groups/clubs, art exhibitions and special events, supported by our licensed cafe bar. Further information can be found by using the menu above. We look forward to seeing you soon.
