**Important message, please read**

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

Black Dyke Band won the 2018 Yorkshire Regional Championship, a title it has claimed 22 times. The band has always been at the forefront of brass band activity, making one of the earliest brass band recordings in 1904 and embarking on a five month tour of Canada and the United States in 1906. Black Dyke has over 350 recordings to its name and has provided background music for television and film. From its very earliest days Black Dyke Band has always encouraged young people to enjoy music at the highest level; in 2006, under the guidance of Nicholas Childs, the band formed the Yorkshire Youth Brass Band.

Scots-born Professor Peter Graham gained international recognition in 2002 within the band community as the first composer outside the USA to the win the American Bandmasters Association’s prestigious Ostwald Award for composition. Prior to that he had already made a signifcant impact on the British Brass Band scene both as arranger (working with luminaries including Karl Jenkins, soprano Lesley Garrett and percussionist Evelyn Glennie for whom he orchestrated and composed the GRAMMY® nominated album Refected in Brass) and via a series of outstanding compositions that first established his reputation. Graham taught for a significant number of years as Professor of Composition at the University of Salford, mentoring a generation of brass and wind composers. He is currently Creative Chair with the Black Dyke Band and editor at www.gramercymusic.com.
