Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:


To manage the impact of Covid-19 in Leeds and ensure the safety and wellbeing of our audiences and all Leeds City Council staff, we must continue to stay at home as much as possible in order to control the virus and save lives.


The majority of our events until the end of July have either been cancelled or postponed to a later date. These include the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds, 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. All other scheduled events are currently being reviewed on a weekly basis and we will keep you informed of any changes and their implications as soon as we can. In the meantime we will continue to develop our online content and look forward to engaging with as many people as possible through our social media channels.  


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 5pm). 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.  


Our sincere thanks for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times.


Keep safe & well.

Millennium Square FAQs

For your safety, the venue security team will be running bag searches ahead of entering the arena for all events in Millennium Square. We advise you to plan your travel arrangements in advance and arrive in plenty of time.

Please note, you cannot bring your own food and drink (other than small 500ml water bottles with unbroken seals) into the arena. Free drinking water will be provided.

A selection of hot food will be available to purchase inside the arena along with a licensed festival bar offering beer, cider, wines, a selection of spirits and soft drinks. 

The Great British Weather 
It is an outdoor event – there is no roof cover and there will be no patio heaters. You are advised to dress warmly as, even on a nice day, the temperature will drop in the evening.

In the case of bad weather, you are advised to pack a waterproof as no large umbrellas are allowed, and umbrellas in general may restrict the views of others so you may be asked to put it down by a steward. Waterproof ponchos will be available to buy inside the arena at all three events.

​Cash Machines
Please note, there are no cash machines within the arena. The nearest is near Carriageworks, however due to long queues in previous years you may want to plan in advance.


The nearest secure parking is available at The Light (accessible via Great George Street) £8.50 between 6pm and 9am.

24 hour, 7 days a week parking is available at Woodhouse Lane car park. Price: £2.20 for 2 hours,
