Who we are

HEART is Headingley’s community, enterprise and arts centre. Home to Assembly Bar + Kitchen and Pulse co-working space, HEART is a space for professional gatherings, private functions, and community classes, and hosts a rich programme of arts and events.

HEART opened in 2011 thanks to the hard work of Headingley Development Trust and local residents who strived to keep this wonderful building in community use. This year we celebrated our 10th birthday with a series of events and activities looking back on the past decade and showcasing all the centre has to offer.

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

For more information, please take a look at our annual report here.

Support HEART

Like many community organisations, HEART closed and lost all of its income for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We would like to thank our staff, volunteers, and the community for supporting us through these unprecedented times.

If you are able to spare anything for our Crowdfunder we would be so grateful.

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.
