Leeds Things to Do
Leeds is a busy city and there never a quiet moment. Visitors will find plenty to do whether it is theatre and comedy, live music or simply going to the cinema. Talking about cinema, Leeds has two annual film festivals including the Leeds International Film Festival, which is becoming increasingly well known. There are three major cinema houses in Leeds: Vue in The Light Shopping Centre, Hyde Park Picture House and Cottage Road Cinema, a cinema which is old and atmospheric near the centre of Headingly.
There is no doubt that Leeds has been the source of many of the world’s most famous music acts, and its music scene is always abuzz. Many big stars perform live in the city, and home-grown talent such as Corinne Bailey Rae and the Kaiser Chiefs are regularly present in the city. Millennium Square is one of the most popular venues right in the city centre with a seating capacity of 7,000.
If you are interested in good theatre, or have an affinity for British comedy, you will definitely be impressed with the range of venues and the fantastic shows and acts Leeds has to offer. The Carriageworks in Millennium Square is home to Leeds’ most impressive amateur music and drama groups. The Grand Theatre hosts the major shows coming straight from the West End, while Seven is a new theatre and arts centre due to open soon on Harrogate Road.
Hotels in Leeds usually offer great access to the most popular entertainment areas which is very convenient for visitors unfamiliar with Leeds. For those completely new to Leeds there is no doubt that they will have a fantastic time in the many entertainment venues Leeds has.
