Our Building

Our building was originally part of the Princes Avenue Wesleyan Chapel known as the school room. Built on the Newland Tofts farm, the church opened in November 1905, but the foundation for the school room where we now reside was laid in 1911. Gelder and Kitchen were the architects, with Sir William Alfred Gelder being one of the most prominent citizens of Hull. The style is reminiscent of Charles Rennie Mackintosh- features showcase the “modern” movement and moves away from the Victorian style.

In 1995, all but the tower of the church was demolished but the school room survived. It was sold to Artlink and refurbished by Quibell & Son as our new base for community art.
