HYDE PARK BOOK CLUB
27-29 Headingley Lane, Leeds, LS6 1BL | Venue Cap. 150 | Website
What started in 2015 as a cafe, re-purposing an old, disused petrol station kiosk adjoined to a fancy dress shop, has transformed into a live music and arts space over two floors serving food and drink and selling books, craft ale records and more. Found in Leeds 6, the two venue spaces take in a broad range of the arts, from gigs and music festivals and local club nights, to spoken word, book launches, theatre, art and photography exhibitions. Being located in an area so heavily populated by students and young people, it has become something of a natural hub for creatives who live in the area and the wider leeds city region.
