In line with national guidance to manage the impact of Coronavirus in Leeds, Leeds City Council (LCC) has closed a large number of buildings and facilities to the public. These include Leeds Town Hall, Carriageworks Theatre and Pudsey Civic Hall. The safety and wellbeing of staff and the people of Leeds demands that we now stay at home, unless it is absolutely essential to go out, in order to protect our NHS and save lives.

These closures will remain in place until the end of April. LCC will continue to monitor developments and follow government guidance with regard to when it may be appropriate and practical for us to reopen. In the meantime we are developing our online content and we will endeavour to engage with as many people as we can through our social media channels.

As a result of the closure period all of our events from now until the end of April have been cancelled or postponed. During this unprecedented time, the loss of ticket sales for cancelled events in the closure period and beyond across all our venues is of huge concern, particularly as we look to the future and the redevelopment plans for Leeds Town Hall. It is with this is mind that 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, tickets holders can choose to add credit to their account to use on a future performance. Refunds (minus the booking fee) are also available.

A member of our Box Office team will be in touch with you shortly if you have bought tickets to any of our events. If you have any queries please contact: boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk  and allow our team to either respond via email or call you back. Should this not be possible, please call the team on 0113 376 0318 (Mon-Fri between 10am and 5pm), but please be prepared for 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. We would like to reassure every ticket holder that they will be contacted either by email, telephone or post. We won’t forget you.

Events after the current closure period are being reviewed on a weekly basis and we will keep you informed of any changes and their implications as soon as we can on our websites and social media channels.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support at this unprecedented time. We look forward to welcoming you back to our events in the future.

Keep safe and well.

With kind regards
Leeds Arts Events & Venues Team

Catherine Ennis is Director of Music at the City of London church of St. Lawrence Jewry next to Guildhall. Under her direction, part of the flourishing Tuesday lunchtime recital series at St. Lawrence Jewry provides a platform for young artists at the organ, whether sixth-formers, current British graduands, or international post-graduates. Catherine was President of the Royal College of Organists (RCO) during its 150th anniversary celebrations; she is Director of the John Hill recitals, Trustee of the Nicholas Danby Trust, and Past President of the Incorporated Association of Organists. In 2018 Catherine was awarded the Medal of the Royal College of Organists.

Catherine began playing the organ while at Christ’s Hospital school, was Organ Scholar at St. Hugh’s College, Oxford, and later Assistant Organist of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, in an era women were all but unknown in such appointments. Recitals and recordings have taken her to many international venues; her recordings have included CDs and broadcasts of extensive repertoire from traditional Irish music to Bach’s Goldberg Variations.  She has taught at three major London Music conservatoires and continues to give individual tuition for students of the RCO Academy. Catherine is in demand for master classes throughout the UK and abroad, and is a frequent examiner and adjudicator for colleges and festivals.  As fund-raiser, and organ consultant, she has helped create four major new London organs (The Rieger at St. Marylebone Parish Church, shared with the Royal Academy of Music, the Klais at St. Lawrence Jewry, the William Drake in the new Greenwich home of Trinity College of Music, and the Queen’s Organ, formerly in the Mansion House and now in the Lady Chapel of Westminster Abbey, built by Mander). As an enthusiast for music-making at the organ, she writes frequently for music journals, and in 1994 established the London Organ Concerts Guide, now an indispensable companion to London's organ music scene.

Recent recitals include dates at three prestigious London venues : Christ Church Spitalfields, Westminster Cathedral, and the Royal Festival Hall. Future events include concerts in the UK as well as in Ireland and Finland.
