    Details

    Surrounded by some of the city's most important buildings, including the Town Hall, Civic Hall, Leeds General Infirmary and the Civic Theatre, Millennium Square is the cultural heart of Leeds city centre.

    The site includes areas for staged performances such as outdoor theatre, pop concerts, operatic and orchestral performances, as well as civic ceremonies, fairs, markets and street entertainment.

    Also on the site, a giant media screen showcases major events, news and local information. This provides a great forum for broadcasting major national and international events such as Live8, the World Cup football tournament, Wimbledon and opera and ballet from the Royal Opera House.

    Millennium Square was Leeds' flagship project to mark the year 2000, funded by Leeds City Council and the Millennium Commission. The £12m project successfully transformed the old Mandela Gardens and a nondescript car park into one of Europe's most innovative and impressive civic spaces as well as providing the city's first new public square in over 60 years.
