In order to stay at home as much as possible and to control the virus and save lives; our concerts have been cancelled through to the end of July, as well as the remainder of the Summer Bands in Leeds Parks 2020 series. This enables us to protect the safety and well-being of our audiences and staff as we manage the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in Leeds. 

 
Support Leeds Town Hall

The loss of ticket sales for cancelled events during these unprecedented times is of great concern, particularly as we look to the future and the redevelopment plans for Leeds Town Hall. With this in mind, we ask if you would consider making a donation to help sustain Leeds Town Hall – perhaps the most iconic and best loved building in the city, and one of such historic value to the people of Leeds and beyond. If preferred, ticket holders can choose to add credit to their account to use on a future performance. Refunds (minus the booking fee) are also available.

If you have bought tickets to any of our events a member of our Box Office team will be in touch with you shortly. If you have any queries please contact: boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk and allow our team to either respond via email or call you back. If that’s not possible, please call the team on 0113 376 0318 (Mon-Fri between 10am and 4pm). There may be a short wait as our Box Office team are now working remotely. Voicemail messages will be collected on a regular basis and someone will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. Please be assured that you will be contacted either by email, telephone or post. We won’t forget you.

Until it is safe to welcome audiences back to our events we’ll continue to share content on our website and social media channels, where we’ll also keep you informed of any changes and their implications as soon as we can.

Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times. Keep safe and well.

With kind regards
Leeds Arts Events & Venues Team

What is Leeds International Concert Season?

Leeds International Concert Season is run by Leeds City Council and is the largest local authority music programme in the UK. We programme more than 200 concerts a year in the Leeds area.

Our Annual Programme

The highlight of each season is the International Orchestral Series which sees national and international orchestras visit Leeds Town Hall on Saturday nights.

The season also includes the UK’s finest brass band series at Morley Town Hall, international chamber music at The Venue, Leeds College of Music, plus a programme of jazz, world and rock at Leeds Town Hall.

Free Concerts

A unique series of sixty lunchtime chamber and organ recitals offers the most extensive programme of free music in Britain. Music moves outside in the Summer for bandstand concerts in Leeds parks.

Festivals and Competitions

We also organise the triennial Leeds Conductors' Competition which supports young British conductors, and work in partnership with Leeds College of Music and Leeds Jazz to produce FuseLeeds - a biennial festival of new music.

New Music

Leeds International Concert Season is an active commissioner of new music. Recent commissions include:

Carl Davis: Hold On! The Anthem of the Leeds Rhinos (2006)
The world-famous film composer was commissioned to write an anthem celebrating the Rhinos’ achievement in becoming Carnegie World Club Champions in 2005.

Michael Nyman and Hanif Kureishi: I was a total virgin (2006)
A collaborative new work by the British composer and author, performed by the London Sinfonietta during FuseLeeds06.
