Yeadon Town Hall, which was designed by local architect William Hill, is a striking French Gothic building which is well-known for its stunning stained glass windows, historical architecture and the Town Hall clock tower.

In April 2019, Yeadon Town Hall CIC officially took over management of the building.

Since then, extensive renovations have taken place and the town hall’s transformation is still ongoing.

Yeadon Town Hall is a venue for a diverse programme of theatre, live music gigs and comedy shows.

Jamie Hudson, chief executive officer at Yeadon Town Hall, said: “Locals love the town hall thanks to its stunning architecture and characterful history.

"We’re working hard to make sure Yeadon Town Hall is part of the community for the next 140 years.”

Yeadon Town Hall Tavern was reopened in August after undergoing refurbishment as part of the town hall’s lockdown project.

Opening times can be found on the Yeadon Town Hall website at www.yeadontownhall.co.uk
