The Barn Coffee Shop is our second venue at Meanwood Valley Urban Farm, Sugar Well Rd, Leeds LS7 2QG. Our other jazz club piano is there and we run our workshops and jam sessions there. This year we hope to start a monthly Sunday afternoon concert there too.
The Barn is a social enterprise, that give all profits to local community projects. They exist to see loneliness reduced in the local area. Volunteering opportunities and training and work experience placements are available for local individuals including: young people, people with learning difficulties, those seeking work/returning to work, and the older generation looking to keep active.
