Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

 

As we continue to follow national guidance around managing the impact of Coronavirus in Leeds, a large number of our venues and facilities (including Leeds Town Hall, Carriageworks, and Pudsey Civic centre) have now closed to the public and will remain so throughout March and April. The safety and wellbeing of staff and the people of Leeds is always our first priority.

 

A number of events due to take place at Millennium Square have now been postponed or cancelled. These include the annual Vaisakhi Parade, Tour de Yorkshire, the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds and the Leeds Food & Drink Festival. All other scheduled events are currently being reviewed on a weekly basis and we will keep you informed as soon as we can to confirm either way. 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.

 

For any ticket holders, including those who have purchased grandstand tickets for the AJ Bell World Triathlon, a member of our Box Office team will be in touch as soon as possible to let you know of forthcoming arrangements. If you have any immediate queries please contact boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk 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.  

 

 Thank you for your understanding and continued support at this unprecedented time.
