The Centre is run by volunteers, local people who believe in what the building has to offer to the community and who enjoy supporting our visiting professional artists and local groups, helping us to help bring life-enriching cultural experiences and vital community activities to all ages.
There are a number of ways you can support us:

After our short (we hope) Intermission, Leyburn Arts & Community Centre will hopefully continue to offer as previously:
Serviced rooms for hire
Well-being activities such as seated exercise classes, a walking group, Pilates and yoga
Youth Cafe for 10-14 year olds
Tuesday Club, Lunch and Chat sessions for those not quite so young
Music and Theatre events
Workshops for all ages
Community cinema screening the best of the recent films and those with a local theme, plus National Theatre Live productions.
To do all this we need enthusiastic volunteers to help with events and cinema screenings, on reception, with our Little Shop Honesty Shop, maintaining our social media presence and Just Giving page, researching and planning our cinema screenings and delivering our workshops. If interested please give us a call for informal discussions and more information. Below are some of the regular activities we run and occasions for which volunteers are always needed:
