Otley Courthouse

An arts and resource centre for everyone



Otley Courthouse is a unique development run by the very people it matters to the most- the community. Based in what was once the town’s courthouse, the centre plays host to an exciting mix of activities and evening events throughout the year.

Opening in 2004, Otley Courthouse completely redeveloped a redundant nineteenth century magistrates court into a purpose-built arts and resource centre that its loving community could enjoy. Going from strength to strength with each passing year, the combined skills and efforts of their staff team, as well as over 100 volunteers and many more local supporters, have provided a thriving arts and resource centre that really makes Otley sparkle.

Their events calendar is literally jam-packed. With films, festivals, talks, performances and so much more going on every month of the year, it truly is an arts and resource centre for everyone.

You can head to their website for their full listings of events and workshops, room hire details, volunteer opportunities and more. Or you can drop by any time between 10am and 4pm Monday to Saturday and surprise yourself with whatever they have on offer.
