7A Wakefield is a large blank canvas of a space, a flexible venue which allows for creating and assembling large scale pieces of work. Housed in the historic Thornes Mill, 7A has hosted events for the likes of Leeds College of Music, Wakefield College and Neon Workshops.

Neon Workshops founder Richard Wheater opened 7A Wakefield as their ‘sister ship’ project space to take on larger projects like the collaboration with Erased Tapes.
