Mr Lewis has teamed up with Elite Training Systems Yorkshire to set up the scheme at its Cornmarket store.

As part of the project, he has installed an art exhibition featuring work from Yorkshire artists and photographers.

Mr Lewis said: “This new project isn’t just an art gallery, it is going to be a place where people can learn about the arts.

“It is also a place where people can find out more entrepreneurship and I want it to be a hub for those aged under 30.

“The main aim is for people to be able to come and leave with something on their CVs but it’s all at an early stage and I’m not quite sure how it’ll work out yet.”
