HEART is 10 Years old!

HEART celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Unfortunately we start the year in lockdown and the building is closed for general activities, this includes Assembly Bar + Kitchen. We hope to have some food provision available from February. Some activities will be on-line so please contact us to ask for details of what we are currently doing.

We have great plans for when we can reopen and look forward to seeing you then.

Please continue to follow our social media channels for updates and activities.

Support HEART

As we are in another lockdown our already limited income decreases further. If you are able to spare anything for our Crowdfunder we would be so grateful. Not only will it help us get through the next few months but will also mean we can invest in our outside area to make this an even lovelier environment for all of you to use as this space will be really important to maintain everyone’s safety, even when we can reopen. Every penny helps us during this difficult time to ensure we have our building properly equipped and maintained, ready to serve our community.

We have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of HEART supporters over this time and hope you can still continue to offer that support. As ever, Whether it’s £1 or £100, it all makes a difference to HEART and we promise to value every donation and ensure we use it to help HEART survive and thrive.

Who We Are

HEART – Headingley Enterprise and Arts Centre – is a community venture set up by the Headingley Development Trust in 2011. It occupies the former Headingley Primary School in the heart of Headingley.

Thanks to Dean at Suncliff Media for many of our beautiful photos.

HEART’s vision is to create a vibrant and welcoming space for a wide range of people to meet, mix, work and play.

For information about what HEART got up to in the last year please click below and read our Annual Report.


HEART can still discuss bookings for room hire. We hope to reopen in December and be able to provide a space for your meetings and groups then.   Contact us at 0113 275 4548 for more information.

If you are interested in making a booking, please contact us.

We also still have events happening online so take a look at our What’s On page as well as our social media:
