The Tetley art gallery to close

Project Space Leeds (PSL), the arts charity that runs The Tetley art gallery, has announced they are leaving the iconic former brewery headquarters building in the heart of Aire Park development as their lease comes to an end.

The current exhibitions and the bar and restaurant will close on Sunday 22 October. Some activities will continue until the end of the year with the space being used for Leeds Baby Week and the Big Up Festival.

PSL hint that they already have plans for a future gallery. A statement on their website says:

“In 2024, our artistic programme will move off site, including Inside Out, a new participatory art project designed to facilitate children’s play in collaboration with communities in Beeston and Beeston Hill and partner organisations.

“We will announce exciting plans for a new home soon – so watch this space for news about our future.”

Since it opened in 2013 The Tetley has seen nearly a million people visit 56 free exhibitions. It has also worked with communities in South Leeds, including schools, festivals and galas as well as park-based summer holiday art projects.
