We are an arts and cultural space too, hosting theatre, live music, a creative marketplace, exhibitions and community cinema.
Our community development work supports local neighbourhoods to organise around what they find important, helping to make Shipley a really great place to live.
What's new and coming up
We are recruiting two new posts:
Community Development Worker Part funded by Bradford Council and the Multi-Story Water project, this post will be supporting neighbourhoods in Shipley and Bingley to identify and realise their aspirations.
Access Worker Part of our Lottery funded older people’s work, this post will be supporting older people to get access activities within the Kirkgate Centre

Calling all local photographers!
We are looking for photographers living or working in the Shipley– amateur or professional – to get involved in an exhibition we are running from July to September 2015. Our themes are: Four Elements: Fire, Water, Air and/or Earth, and/or non-digital work made using the older photographic processes. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Saturday 25th April from 8.00pm
Bring tunes that deserve to be heard by others. This month's theme is “cover versions” - make your own interpretation – travesties, inspirations, re-interpretations and plain old rip-offs! No vinyl? No problem! Go along with or with records to enjoy a great evening of music and fine company! A bar is open. A suggested £3 donation can be made on entry to help cover costs. Visit their website for more information.
Saturday 16th May from 8pm. £3.
Front Room Disco brings you an eclectic alternative mix of music. Covering indie, alternative, ska, reggae, punk, disco and 80's pop. With Wil Oddsox (Love to Boogie).

A bi-monthly club next on Saturday 30th May from 2.30pm to 3.30pm. £4 per family.
Sessions are run by the friendly folk at Sponge Tree, who provide plentiful materials, tuition and inspiration.
