Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update from 15 June

 

In order to protect the safety and well-being of our audiences and staff as we continue to manage the impact of COVID-19 in Leeds; to stay at home as much as possible to control the virus and save lives, our events through to the end of July have either been cancelled by the promoter or postponed to a later date.

 

These include the Leeds Food & Drink Festival, 80s Classical, Club Classical Anthems, Raiders Of The Lost Ark In Concert, One Night Under The Stars, Salute to Reggae, Will Young & James Morrison, The Popworld Festival, the Brutus Gold's Love Train and the Leeds Ska & Mod Festival. 

 

If you have bought tickets to any of our events, a member of our Box Office team will be in touch with you shortly. If you have any queries please contact boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk and allow our team to either respond via email or call you back. If that’s not possible, please call the team on 0113 376 0318 (Mon-Fri between 10am and 4pm). Please be prepared for a short wait as our Box Office team are now working remotely. Voicemail messages will be collected on a regular basis and someone will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. Please be assured that every ticket holder will be contacted either by email, telephone or post. We won’t forget you.  

 

Until it is safe to welcome audiences back to our events we’ll continue to share content on our website and social media channels, where we’ll also keep you informed of any changes and their implications as soon as we can.

 

Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times.
