There’s loads going on in the heart of headingley
Headingley Enterprise and Arts Centre (HEART) is the arts, enterprise and community centre in the middle of Headingley run by the community for the community.
HEART exists thanks to the efforts of Headingley Development Trust that worked hard to keep Headingley Primary School (closed in 2006) in community use. After a wonderful refurbishment the school reopened as a Community Arts Centre in January 2011. They are truly making the best of 2021 by celebrating their 10th anniversary.
HEART offers a versatile venue to hire, a spacious shared workspace and a varied programme of events and classes.
Visit them for fun or for work, but make sure you stop by Assembly Bar + Kitchen nestled inside the building – a great place to grab some lunch with family, friends or colleagues.
