HEART will be part of the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme during August. You can get 50% off meals and drinks – excluding alcohol – (up to the value of £10) anytime on Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesdays. Even more reason to come down and see us!

We are open from 9am to 4pm from Monday to Saturday, serving fabulous food and drink. Take a look at the Assembly Bar + Kitchen page where you can access the menu.

HEART has received the ‘We’re good to go’ industry standard. Acquiring the Industry Standard mark means that HEART has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, has a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

Support HEART

With our takeaway open, cafe service in our outdoor spaces, and limited room bookings allowed we are still only making 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. 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.

What’s On

In the current situation we are trying to keep our community involved by providing social media content and hosting online events such as yoga, music and quizzes.


Humans of Heart

Humans of Heart: Tighearnan

This week we have asked one of our wonderful chef's Tighearnan to share his story with you of how he came to be a chef at HEART and how he has used his cheffing skills to get through

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.

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

Monday to Saturday: 8am-11pm and Sunday: 10am-4pm
