What do you get when you bring together some of the best-loved names in the worlds of music, culture, food and drink in Leeds?
Project House is a bold new endeavour from four of the city’s most cherished institutions – Brudenell Social Club, Belgrave Music Hall, Welcome Skate Store and Super Friendz. This cultural supergroup took it upon themselves, a few years ago, to join hands in the creation of a multi-purpose, 1000-capacity venue that hits different.
Set in a 16,000 square foot former tile warehouse on Armley Road, the venue aims to cover all cultural bases, hosting everything from concerts to exhibitions, makers markets to roller disco parties. There’s also plans for a chef-led restaurant concept a little later down the line, which will showcase the best of the city’s food and drink scene.
With a state-of-the-art PA and lighting system, the venue has already lined up a great opening season of gigs, with Boy Harsher, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Walkmen, BADBADNOTGOOD and The Murder Capital all set to play at Project House before 2023 is out, with extra-curricular events like record fairs, ambient yoga sessions and good old car boots also scheduled.
With decades of experience and an incredible amount of local respect behind the organisers, we’ve every expectation that Project House is going to take Leeds by storm when it opens in late July.
