To manage the impact of Covid-19 in Leeds and ensure the safety and wellbeing of our audiences and all Leeds City Council staff, we must continue to stay at home as much as possible in order to control the virus and save lives.

Our events through to the end of July have either been cancelled by the promoter or postponed to a later date. The loss of ticket sales for cancelled events during these unprecedented times is very concerning, 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 5pm). 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. 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 will continue to share content with you 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.

Our sincere thanks for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times.

Keep safe and well,
With best wishes
Leeds Arts Events & Venues Team

Formed in 1910 as the Craghead Colliery Band in County Durham, the band was sponsored by Ever Ready in 1968 and in 2003 it signed a new deal with the Reg Vardy Group. Following this, for the first time in its history, it finished in the top ten in every major contest for two consecutive years. The band first qualified to compete in the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall in 1963 and has continued to qualify almost every year since; 36 times as North of England Regional Champion. A long running partnership with Ray Farr as Music Director introduced the band to a range of innovative concerts featuring the band alongside big band and swing style music.
