The Tetley

At The Tetley, we are passionate about creativity and innovation, be it the artists we work with, the audiences we aim to inspire or the superb food and drink we serve in our Bar and Kitchen.

We will have an exciting programme of exhibitions and events that support and promote new and experimental work by artists based in the region and further afield. In the first instance the programme will focus on this beautiful Art Deco Building and the extraordinary Tetley Collection, a fascinating array of artworks, documents and ephemera relating to the history of the brewery.

Downstairs in the Bar and Kitchen a hearty menu of locally sourced Yorkshire fare will be on offer, from homemade pies, ploughmans and cakes to the ultimate pint of Tetley’s and a great selection of world beers, teas and coffees, served in a relaxed setting.

And with the largest green space in the city centre right outside our front door, we’ll look forward to welcoming families of all ages. Inside we’ll have a designated child and carer room, high chairs and kids activities in the Bar and Kitchen plus a programme of events to entertain and enthuse your bairns. The Tetley is proud to be an Ambassador for Child Friendly Leeds.

Tim Etchells: Where The Heart Is

  • 23 July 2014 — 23 July 2016 *on now

Project Space Leeds has project managed a new public art work by Tim Etchells for property developer Rushbond.

WHERE THE HEART IS is a neon work sitting just beneath the roofline of the Algernon Firth Building, Leeds. It is a fragment of the well-known phrase ‘home is where the heart is’ and allows layers of meaning and association with the Algernon Firth Building to be considered.

It refers to the building as residential accommodation, a place where students make their first independent home away from family and, at the same time it respects the building’s former use as the Institute of Pathology (opened 1933) as a site of anatomical research and learning. There is also reference to the ‘heart’ and generosity of the philanthropist Firth (1856-1936) in establishing the Institute as well as numerous contributions he made to other charitable projects in Leeds.

WHERE THE HEART IS is a hidden prompt for us the viewer to set us thinking, remembering and wondering about the things, people, ideas and places that really matter to them.

Open Archive No.1

  • 1 November 2014 — 1 November 2018 *on now

The Tetley has inherited an extensive collection of objects, documents, artworks and ephemera left behind after the closure of the brewery in 2011.

The Collection includes tools, implements and devices, such as those currently on display in the City Workshop. The Collection is uncatalogued at present and the team at The Tetley is interested to hear from visitors, especially ex-brewery workers, who can help identify the objects and reveal their hidden histories.

Painting in Time

  • 3 April — 5 July 2015 *on now

Exhibiting artists include Claire Ashley, Kristina Buch, Kate Hawkins, Robert Chase Heishman and Megan Schvaneveldt, Natasha Kidd, Lisa Milroy, Yoko Ono, Hayley Tompkins, Jessica Warboys, Sarah Kate Wilson

This stunning, large-scale exhibition brings together works by a range of international artists who are making a significant contribution to the idea of the ‘expanded field of painting’. The show foregrounds works that have evolving and interactive elements that change over time.

Located throughout The Tetley, Painting in Time showcases a diverse range of work by artists at differing stages of their careers, including inflatable paintings, edible paintings and painting machines.

New site-responsive commissions sit alongside existing works reconfigured for the unique spaces at The Tetley, as we look at the enduring popularity of the medium and ask ‘what constitutes painting today?’
