Join us for the first ever Print Perform Present showcasing exciting new work by emerging artists, performers and publishers based in Leeds and the North.

Enjoy a weekend celebrating print and performance throughout our building, with a wide selection of independent artists displaying and selling new original artwork, from self-published zines, colourful screen prints, artist books, cards and more!

Alongside the stalls, we will also be presenting a series of live performances in and around The Tetley, all completely free! There will be a chance to chat directly with the artists, learn more about their practices in Spotlight talks and get hands on in a wide variety of creative workshops.

Free Workshops

Saturday: Building Better Futures, RACE ZINE
1–4pm, drop-in, Learning Studio

How do we build a better future for everyone? In this workshop we will be looking at the idea of the future, from the standpoint of diversity and inclusion. We will be building imaginary worlds, spaces and ideas through questioning our own current climate and experiences. Through using symbols and visual aids, alongside group and independent discussion, we will be creating zines which bring these futures alive! Think speculative, wacky, fun, messy and of course, futuristic.

Sunday: Movement, Music & Mark-Making
11am–3pm, drop-in, Learning Studio

Explore large-scale mark-making techniques in response to retro beats. Fill the room with colour & energy: mark-makers on sticks, mark-making tails, arm extensions and shoes. Dance and Draw all at once.

Bar & Kitchen
Head to our bar to try our new The Tetley blend of freshly ground coffee! There will be lots of tasty Grab & Go treats on offer from the Bar from vegan donuts to savoury pies and gluten-free Cream Cakes, so you can make the most of your weekend.

However if you're craving something more, we're welcoming bookings in the Restaurant all weekend! Please note, on Sunday 8 March we are only accepting pre-booked tables for our Sunday Lunch menu in the Restaurant. To avoid disappointment, reserve your table online.
