Details

South Square is a collection of 19th Century workers cottages, in the old Yorkshire village of Thornton, famous for its Brontë connections and its impressive 20-arch viaduct.

Renovated as a community arts centre in 1982, South Square Centre is now home to ten studio spaces for a variety of artists, as well as a gallery, community spaces, archive, fine art framers, bar and a cafe.

South Square Centre has recently undergone a huge transformation which adds wheelchair and family changing accessible toilets, a new ground floor gallery and an attractive, peaceful community garden space allowing for outdoor workshops and activities.



The centre hosts community events and activities for all ages, including an ongoing workshop programme and provides community spaces available to hire.

It is a thriving destination with a frequently changing programme of quality contemporary visual art by local artists and community groups. There are three galleries to immerse yourself in and all the exhibitions are free.
