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: 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

A very warm welcome to the new Endellion Spring Series for 2019

It is a special year for The Endellion’s because forty years ago on 20 January 1979 we had our first ever rehearsal and began our concert giving.  Within a year or so we had played for the first time in Leeds— at The Leeds Grammar School series. Ever since then we have been delighted to be invited to return to Leeds, especially for our annual spring series at The Venue which began in 2004. The majority of the pieces which we have programmed this season are works which we have loved playing for decades. Such is their many-layered profundity, expressiveness and humanity that we can never tire of exploring and revising them; pieces such as Schubert Death and the Maiden or Beethoven Op 127.

We have also marked our fortieth year by commissioning Sally Beamish, Prach Boondiskulchok, Jonathan Dove and Giles Swayne each to write a short piece for string quartet. The unrivalled greatness, rich variety and sheer volume of the quartet repertoire have long nourished us and kept us going. However, there are relatively few short pieces for string quartet and we wanted to contribute to making good this deficit.  So each of these pieces is around four or five minutes long, and as I write this some of them are being delivered and my first impression is of the sheer variety of their idioms. 

The classical core of the repertoire is represented by Beethoven, early, middle and late; early-ish and late Haydn; Mozart and Schubert. We are also very happy to play the wonderfully communicative Bartók No 2, Ravel, and Dvořák Op 80 which we adopted towards the beginning of our quartet life.  It is our pleasure to welcome you to enjoy these masterpieces with us.
