Principal Venues

The Leeds Library 

Unfortunately, the Leeds Library's Grade II* listed building is not currently fully accessible. They have a stair lift from the ground floor foyer to the first floor but are unable to install a through-floor lift due to the building’s historic status. Please email them on if you have any questions around access, and they will do everything that we can to accommodate you.

Leeds Libraries - Central 

Carriageworks Theatre 

Hyde Park Book Club is fully accessible. Both floors have separate entrances, please contact us beforehand if your event is in the basement and we'll open the basement entrance. Unfortunately we do not have an accessible toilet. Support Dogs are welcome and bowls of water supplied.
