Superheroes of Leeds

18 August – 12 December 2021

Free, No Booking Required

Discover 235 drawings and testimonies celebrating Leeds' amazing teachers, councillors, parents, bin men and delivery drivers, plus Marcelo Bielsa, Captain Sparkle Butt and many other worthy heroes.

In March 2021, The Tetley issued a call for heroes: people who deserve to be thanked for the support they give and the difference they make each day. We received nominations from visitors, groups in our community and local primary schools.

Nominated by friends, colleagues and loved ones, these heroes make our city better, one day at a time.

In this exhibition, The Tetley pays tribute to them and showcases the artistic talents of our local community.

Take part in Superheroes of Leeds

Join us for an exciting series of superhero inspired workshops and an inspiring family film programme hosted at The Tetley in collaboration with Hyde Park Picture House – see the related events section below.

To accompany the exhibition, visit The Tetley shop to check out a selection of comics chosen by Leeds based independent comic book shop, Ok Comics.
