Don’t let our lights go out

For over 400 years, our venues – Leeds Grand Theatre, City Varieties Music Hall and Hyde Park Picture House – have brought theatre, music, comedy and film to the people of Leeds. Until now. Now our future is uncertain.

We’re doing all that we can to ensure our survival throughout this period, as well as prepare for the economic uncertainty that we know will follow. Your support has never been more needed, or appreciated. Thank you.
