Dean Clough is nationally renowned for its commitment to the arts.
It has supported a gallery programme since the mid 1980’s that it makes freely available to the public, despite having no direct funding from the local council, the Arts Council of England, or from the EEC.
It has continued to buy art for its collection at a time when many municipal galleries have abandoned the practice.
It provides rent-free accommodation for some 20 artists and for major theatre companies such as Northern Broadsides and IOU theatre, as well as for arts charities such as Northern Orchestral Enterprises Ltd (NOEL), or Yorkshire Youth & Music.
It regularly supports regional and national theatre initiatives, and has a history of mounting memorable musical performances – particularly with its acclaimed jazz seasons.
