LEEDS 2023

Year of Culture

LEEDS 2023 is a year-long celebration of culture in our extraordinary city and everybody can be a part of it.

2023 will be a transformational year like no other. 12 signature events and a multitude of creative experiences will be happening all over our city. From dance to design, art to architecture, poetry to pop, sculpture to sport, grassroots community theatre to performances on our world-class stages, there’s something for everyone, no matter where you live or what you like.

We think culture is everywhere in this city and this is our time to shout about it. We’re working with local, national and international artists and communities to create a celebration that’s for Leeds, with Leeds and inspired by Leeds.

LEEDS 2023 will be an explosion of colour, noise and brilliance that will show the world in our city and our city to the world.
