Heritage Open Days
September 7, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00am, repeating until September 9, 2017
Left Bank Leeds used to be St. Margaret’s Church and was built to the designs of Temple Moore between 1906-1908. It stands together with Leeds City Varieties, Civic Hall, Grand Theatre as one of Leeds’ Grade II* listed buildings.
Temple Moore was one of Victorian England’s greatest church architects. In a career spanning five decades, he built more than forty churches. They are now considered to be masterpieces of the late Gothic Revival, a style of architecture he raised to a new level of beauty and refinement.
Our building continues to inspire people, with its wonderful sense of space with amazing arches and high ceiling.
We’re celebrating the heritage of our amazing building during Heritage Open Days and invite you to come and explore our building and learn more about its incredible history and how it has been transformed over the years.
We’re open Thursday 7, Friday 8 and Saturday 9 September 10am-4pm.
The bar will be open selling cake, drinks and snacks, and you are invited to stay a while if you like. Feel free to bring your sketchbook or camera and explore the space with an artistic eye.
On Saturday 9 September there will be a drop-in craft workshop for all the family with fun activities and things to make. We’ve just had a beautiful timeline designed by artist Hannah Edmonds, so we will be using that for inspiration. This workshop is free but please RSVP via Eventbrite.
These events have been made possible with thanks to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
