Great venue

We went to the Feldspar and Plumhall gig. This is a great little venue and it is very well run. They also have a bar.

Situated in Otley town center, take the time to view the place with its original police holding cells. Lots of varied activities from craft markets to live shows, cinema and exhibitions. Also a pleasant cafe (with bar) on site. View the website in advance to checkup on activities.

I spent many hours, including my 21st birthday, at Otley Magistrates' Court so it's wonderful to see the buildings being brought to life as a community arts venue. I've visited the Courthouse on many occasions since, there's always something going on and it's a friendly place with a lovely little cafe, perfect for whiling away an hour or two.

A very interesting place to visit. The cells area is very interesting and you can go inside one to get a feel of what it was like to be incarcerated there, often for minor offences. The information stones set in the courtyard outside make for interesting reading too. Staff were attentive and helpful and very keen to make your courthouse... More

This place is an interesting building, and as the name suggests, being the old courthouse means it has a fascinating past. It is now a real 'hub' for Otley and visitors, being renowned as an arts centre, and hosting craft fairs to coincide with the end of month Sunday Farmers' markets. It also acts as a cinema, music venue, and... More

The Courthouse is a great asset for Otley and many excellent events take place here . However it lets itself down by not training its many volunteers adequately . It's just not acceptable for them to say , as very often they do , " I'm sorry , I'm only a volunteer " . A great many other charities take... More

There is always something interesting going on at The Courthouse! They have Art Displays/Concerts/Films/Craft Fairs..etc. Definitely recommend popping in and having a chat with them and picking up a program, or just visiting their website to see what's happening there!

We've seen lots of the shows (mostly comedy) at the courthouse over the last few years. It is an intimate venue where you are always close to the acts. The staff are always both helpful and welcoming. The bar is reasonably priced compared to many venues. Overall it is a fantastic asset to our community and would highly recommend a... More
