Dewsbury based artists Daylight Robbery are making a new artwork for The Arcade, as part of the Dewsbury Creative Town Arts Programme, while restoration work is underway. They would love to hear your memories and stories about this unique local landmark. 

Be part of the conversation & help us create a temporary artwork for The Arcade 

To everyone who remembers The Arcade (or has admired it walking past), we’d love to hear your stories about this amazing local landmark.  We’re Dewsbury-based artists Daylight-Robbery who’ve been commissioned to create a temporary artwork for The Arcade entrance while renovation work is taking place.  The artwork will be in place until The Arcade re-opens to the public in 2022.

We’d love to incorporate the memories of as many local residents as possible into our artwork and would really appreciate it if you would take part in our short online survey, which is open until 11th August 2021.  We anticipate this will take less than 5 minutes of your time and can be completed via this link:

For those of you who prefer to chat in person, you can also join us to talk shop at The Arcade unit (Market Place entrance), Dewsbury on Wednesday 4th August & Wednesday 11th August from midday – 2pm.  

We’d love to see your photos of The Arcade, as well, and these can be brought to The Arcade on the dates above or emailed to 

For further information about either the project or the survey please don’t hesitate to contact us via the email above. We’d love to hear from you.
