Tileyard heads to Yorkshire

Posted on: Wednesday 13th of May 2020

Tileyard London, based in the city’s Kings Cross area, is home to some 250 mainly music/entertainment industry companies – including the likes of Believe, Platoon, Beats 1, Maverick and Empire –  based in a range of offices, studios and other amenities. Tileyard has now revealed plans to open a new site in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Plans are well underway for Tileyard North, which is currently slated to open in a collection of unused mill buildings known as Rutland Mills, next to the city’s Hepworth Gallery in 2023.

Nick Keynes, Tileyard London co-founder, said: “The whole Tileyard family are excited to confirm our first site outside of London. We’ve already been inundated with requests for space there and there are lots of exciting conversations taking place including the possibility of having some post-production studios, which could tie in to Channel 4 in Leeds.”

Work is now well underway on the flagship scheme which has been described by current Wakefield Council leader Denise Jeffery as a “gamechanger” for the city. Within the complex there are exciting plans for workshops and music studios, bars, restaurants and cafes, conference spaces and even a new hotel. In addition, Tileyard’s Paul Kempe commented that, “We are definitely going to run an education programme there too and we have already been in talks with universities.”  The facilities at Tileyard North will be available for the general public to experience and enjoy, mirroring those of Tileyard London who amongst its public spaces offers an onsite Brewery and Tap Room, (Two Tribes Brewery), Tileyard Health and Wellness, The Gallery Event space and Vinyl Cafe. As it stands, the first building will be ready to welcome Tileyard Education in September 2021, with Phase 1 of Tileyard North completed by December 2022 and then officially open in 2023.

Anyone interested in future studio or office space at Tileyard North should get in touch via the Tileyard North website.
