The Grade II listed building is steeped in a rich history. It was originally constructed for the trade of ‘Yorkshire Broadcloths’ – cheap yet good quality cloths, which were produced in Leeds and the surrounding areas. This laid the foundations for the city to gain its status as a global centre for commerce and trade in textiles.

While Cloth Hall Court’s traditional heritage has inspired its aesthetic design, it meets every requirement of a contemporary events venue. Following recent refurbishment, the venue is equipped throughout with state-of-the art technical facilities, designed to deliver a seamless experience for all in-person, virtual and hybrid events.

Three of the suites include high quality, auto-tracking cameras and tabletop microphones ensuring that all presenters, panellists and the in-room audience can be clearly seen and heard by remote participants. The hybrid enabled rooms are platform agnostic, allowing you flexibility in using and managing the online element of your event via your preferred provider.
