The Birley, located in Preston City Centre, is an artist-led studio and project space, supporting modern art practices. The studio hosts an array of contemporary art events, from exhibitions and live events to workshops and residencies.

The Birley was established in 2014, set up by a not-for-profit organisation made up of UCLan art and media graduates: the Post Post CIC. The studio now offers dedicated space for up to 30 artists and supports experimental approaches, collaborations, and testing new ideas.
