Nigel Adams met with Tileyard London Co-Founders Nick Keynes and Paul Kempe during his visit to the creative hub.
Paul Kempe, Tileyard North Co-Founder and Owner said: “We are delighted to be working with Long Division, an outstanding local festival with a reputation for nurturing and supporting emerging talent, we see this as a long-term partnership for Tileyard North and are looking forward to being able to collaborate further with Long Division at Tileyard North in the years to come.”
Paul Kempe, Managing Director of Tileyard said "We are definitely going to run an education programme there too and we have already been in talks with universities."
Paul Kempe said: “We can’t wait to see what opportunities Tileyard can provide to the creative industries in the north…We hope people will want to visit from local areas and further afield to experience what will be a thriving, vibrant community – to create, to meet, to eat and should they wish, stay in our new on site hotel!”
The Yorkshire Post writes of Tileyard London's Co-Founder, Paul Kempe's plan to extend the creative hub to the Rutland Mills in Wakefield. Paul Kempe says “If we get it right, Tileyard at Rutland Mills will become a destination - a magnet for people not just in Wakefield but further afield. My vision is that people will be coming to Wakefield to experience what will be an incredibly vibrant community - to meet, to eat, to stay in the hotel.
