Whole Venue: Open Monday - Saturday: 9.30am - 5pm

Following a fantastic exhibition in 2016, the LBT is excited to present YOUR chance to enter our Summer Exhibition 2017...


This opportunity is open to anyone across Kirklees who creates wonderful things... this might be through painting, embroidery, stone carving, pastels, glass, marquetry, sculpture, etching, printing, jewellery making, lace... whatever... paper folding, dioramas... topiary (hmmm...possibly not...)


All you need to do is complete the online form here


It asks for a little bit of information about yourself... the piece or pieces you'd like to share... a photo if you have one and just 20 words to tempt people to find out more.


Work will be selected by Barbara Hellowell - Artist in Residence here at the LBT, Mark Milnes - Artistic Director of the Creative Arts Hub in Mirfield, and Murray Forrest - Exhibitions Co-ordinator at the LBT.  We hope to include at least one piece from everyone that hopes to take part... and the maximum number of pieces you are allowed to offer is 3 (so if you were really lucky you might get to show them all!!)


  1. Everyone MUST complete an entry form
  2. All work must be delivered for selection before 8pm on Thursday 6th July
  3. Decisions about which piece or pieces we'd like to show will be shared on Saturday 8th July
  4. We'll hang the exhibition on Monday 10th July
  5. .... and then you'll be able to enjoy, revel and share your experience with everyone you know until Saturday 9th September.



So don't miss out... fill in an entry form now!
