thestudioleeds undergoes expansion to double in size

10 years since launching, thestudio seems to be winning at the numbers game: less than one year after opening in a fourth location, the group’s third venue is gearing up for expansion works that will double its existing size. thestudioleeds will be taking over the floor adjacent to it, adding an extra 7,000 sq. ft. to the space and creating four new rooms. This will take the venues total room count to 11, capable of accommodating from 2 to 185 guests, just in time for thestudioleeds’ second birthday in September this year.

Known for its fresh and colourful take on the typically monochrome corporate world, thestudioleeds has brought its signature style to the city and has received a warm Yorkshire welcome. A place to meet, train and entertain, thestudioleeds has filled a gap in the region’s events market, offering a quirky alternative to the city centre’s former scene. In addition to the venues existing Lego wall, an indoor silver birch forest and a very tactile moss wall, the newly expanded site will have an outdoor terrace, similar to its Birmingham and Manchester couterpatrts, as well as two further breakout areas.

Speaking about the group’s growth, Julian Kettleborough, Commercial Director at thestudio, commented:

“Since opening just under two years ago, we’ve enjoyed a level of custom that we could never have expected. As a result of this, we were regularly reaching capacity and having to turn custom away. This is never an easy thing to do, particularly when we’ve built such great relationships with our customers here, so in thestudio’s true style, we decided to think outside the box for another solution. When the floor above became available, we knew that it was the opportunity we had been waiting for and now we can’t wait for thestudioleeds to be even bigger and better in September.”

The four additional rooms will be able to accommodate 8, 49, 49, and 63 delegates respectively and will be fitted with state-of-the-art AV equipment, including integrated sound systems, Apple TV, and HDMI data projection, to ensure that your day runs without any technical difficulties. Added to this, the three dedicated breakout zones will all serve thestudio’s unlimited tea, coffee, and snacks throughout the day, and will provide the space for customers to fuel their creativity with award-winning meals cooked on-site with locally sourced ingredients.

thestudioleeds will remain open throughout the works, and will launch its brand new floor on 4 September, so you don’t have long to wait! Better still, you can already book the space in advance, by contacting thestudio events team on 0800 028 6694.
