CLAYground is a monthly chance to simply see and seriously play. Go to our whats on page to book a table 


We’re throwing the doors wide open on the first Friday of every month! Come to cavort with us. Bring your curious pals and your great chat and observe new artistic ideas and experiments come to life.

Our first one kicks off on the 6th of August with Ro Hardaker’s invisible, without bodies. 

With deliberate slowness, Hardaker studies haptic configurations and negotiates new processual terms, bodies and sites as they are being realised. Here, leaking and slick with prophecy she fills, holds and empties vessels; testing their capacities to tolerate and producing instances in which language and violence are extracted, then redistributed as intense affective encounters.


CLAYground pilot series (August- October 2021) was made possible with support from Leeds Inspired to address the lack of non-hierarchical spaces for live artists and those interested in artworks to co-exist and test things out.

Puppeteer and performer Freddie Hayes is offering puppet workshops as part of her Arts Council Funded project - “Potatohead”.

On the 4th of August at 6:30pm and its totally Free!


These workshops are for people ages 14+. Particularly young people anybody who has struggled with loneliness, remote learning and unemployment over the past 2 years.


The workshops will allow participants to build confidence and develop creative skills by exploring their own identity through puppetry. These workshops will be super fun way of learning and relaxing.

We are working to keep everyone as safe as possible as we transition back to live events. In order to do this we have some continued rules around infection control and we ask that you familiarise yourself with them before coming to an event.

Like many other small and independent spaces we have found ourselves in a very difficult situation as the continuation of our work relies on audience attendance. If you’re in a position to support our not for profit objectives, you can become a CLAY MAKER or alternatively choose your donation on our membership section. 

We’re delighted to say that we’ve been awarded a Cultural Recovery Grant in the 2nd round funded by DCMS delivered by Arts Council England. We’re grateful to be able to stay open for our studio holders and transition back into live practice & excited to still be #hereforculture

We hope you’re all staying safe and healthy!
