Heart is reopening with a takeaway offer from 1st June!

We’ll be open from 9am to 4pm serving lots of lovely food and drink.Take a look at the Assembly Bar + Kitchen page where you can access the menu.

Support HEART

Although we are opening our takeaway this is a small part of our usual income. We don’t take external funding and so need to continue generating our own income so we can continue to pay our bills, retain our staff, and ensure we have our building properly equipped and maintained, ready to serve our community as soon as the current crisis allows. Every penny helps us during this difficult time.

We have been so overwhelmed by the generosity of HEART supporters over this time and hope you can still continue to offer that support; both by coming along for a coffee, sandwich or other takeaway items but also by continuing to donate to our Crowdfunder. 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.


Latest Update

A weekly update from our Centre Manager, Mike Bird. As we approach reopening we wanted to give you an update on how our week has gone an what is to come!Crowdfunder:…………………………………Although we are so excited to re-open we would like to note that this is a small section of what we do here at HEART. Although we wish we could avoid using takeaway containers your kind donations to this point have enabled us to buy vegware which are biodegradable and recyclable and this has aided us in ensuring we maintain our standards for sustainability and reducing our impact on the environment and meet the standards of the restrictions we currently face! We are very grateful to each and every person who has donated to us thus far and we will continue to welcome these kind donations through our crowdfunder page. https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/support-heart-through-this-uncertain-time?tk=b8fc0d6f219b79e0b745bc6062b9805d7f520bb5Takeaway service:………………………………………We will be open Monday to Friday starting next week, June 1st from 9am to 4pm. We are excited to see you all again! We will be releasing a video run through of how our takeaway service will work on Sunday so keep an eye out for that! June 5th World Environmental Day:………………………………………We at HEART are very passionate about ensuring we reduce our impact in as many ways as we can, through rainwater collection, solar panels and sensor lighting systems.

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.
