Since opening as an art gallery in 2013, we’ve welcomed nearly a million visitors through our doors – and we’re immensely proud of everything we’ve achieved here.
In the last ten years, we’ve presented 56 exhibitions, (including Yorkshire’s only Turner-prize winner!) and worked with more than 1200 artists – based locally, nationally and internationally.
As well as our breathtaking programme of free exhibitions, and a busy events schedule of weddings, conferences and events, we also pride ourselves on engaging with our local communities.
In the last year alone, the gallery’s under 5s play space, Tiny Tetley Studio, has welcomed more than 10,000 young children, parents and carers, and the gallery’s participation programme has engaged with 14,000 people, hosting community groups and organisations at the building and working offsite in south Leeds to bring creative projects to parks and community centres.
What you need to know
The Tetley Bar & Kitchen will also close from 22 October 2023.
The Tetley will then close to the public from 17 December onwards.
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.
We also of course want to say thank you to the hundreds of thousands of people who’ve visited us over the last ten years, and to the team, the artists and communities at the heart of the organisation.
We’ll be looking back over the last ten years and saying our many thank yous on our social media channels over the next few months.
