Leeds is a hotbed of creative cultural talent, and it enjoys a reputation for producing spectacular and innovative shows.

Thoughout the year you'll find popular performers of stage and screen in a variety of venues across the city, such as The Grand Theatre and Opera House, and the adjacent Howard Assembly Room, home to Opera North.

Dance has always been an essential part of Leeds life, and we are lucky enough to have both the classical Northern Ballet company and the contemporary Phoenix Dance Theatre based here in the city. 

The Leeds International Film Festival is a major event on the world cinema stage with hundreds of screenings and events taking place over 17 days in November.

Enjoying amazing performances doesn't have to be expensive either. There are great discounts at the West Yorkshire Playhouse during the week, and annual free events such as Light Night offer everyone a chance to enjoy great entertainment.
