“Interesting”

Otley Courthouse Arts Centre
Ranked #2 of 17 things to do in Otley
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Always has a lot going on, whether it be music, plays, talks etc. The cafe is nice and a visit to the old police cells, which were used in TV's "Heartbeat" are very interesting to see. A bit out of the way of the main high street shopping area but lots of parking (payable) just behind the building. Worth a visit.

I really liked the warm welcome and a delightful visit. Helped by a great performance from Hope and Social.

The Courthouse has so many different experiences on offer its hard to list them all - they include the Film Society (great films once a month, plus they've just started doing "Blockbusters" which they call C@tch at the Courthouse), also great music of all sorts from folk to world music to classical to choral, drama (they'll probably be doing a pantomime or some sort of Christmas show), science fairs, antique fairs, it's the meeting place for loads of clubs and societies, and with all this going on they still manage to be friendly and welcoming - even after only a few visits you will be recognised and greeted like an old friend.
This week I went to the first C@tch film which was Avengers Assemble, based on old Marvel comics and featuring Superman and the Incredible Hulk among others in a thoroughly up-to-date adventure, great fun, and with popcorn and ice cream on sale too - great!

This is such a wonderful vibrant place which caters for many different tastes. It is great for Otley people as it offers a variety of music e.g. world, folk, classical and brings local and international artists. Creative arts are featured such as painting and photography exhibitions. Once a month (linking in with the farmer's market) there is a craft fair. Workshops are provided for many people including school aged children during the holidays.
Tea, coffee, and delicious cakes are on the menu and can be recommended.
The centre seems to bring the heart of the community together with staffing provided mostly by volunteers. Visit and see what you think.
