As we continue to follow national guidance around managing the impact of Coronavirus in Leeds, Leeds City Council have now closed a large number of buildings and facilities to the public. These include Leeds Town Hall, Carriageworks Theatre and Pudsey Civic Hall, where we have been able, until recently, to welcome visitors, but the safety and wellbeing of staff and the people of Leeds is always our first priority.

These closures will remain in place throughout March and April. Leeds City Council will be monitoring developments and following government guidance with regards to when it may then 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 of April have been cancelled or postponed. A member of our Box Office team will be in touch with you shortly if you have purchased tickets to any of our events. If you have any queries please contact and allow our team to either respond via email or call you back. Should this not be possible, please do call the team on 0113 376 0318 (Mon-Fri between 10am and 5pm), but please be prepared for a short wait. We would like to reassure every ticket holder that we will get back to you as soon as we can by email, telephone or post. We won’t forget you.

Events after the closure period are being reviewed on a weekly basis and we will keep you informed as soon as we can to confirm either way.

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
