In a unique partnership, festival organisers LeedsBID (Leeds Business Improvement District), The Tetley and developer and land owner Vastint are collaborating to create a cultural hub in this iconic city centre location.
The alliance brings together the UK's leading metropolitan festival of new ideas and innovation with a pioneering venue synonymous with fresh and emerging artists and talent, showcasing and supporting original and exciting works, located in the heart of the city's South Bank transformation; all of this on land owned by Vastint, a company which values true mixed-use development and creative placemaking.
Leeds International Festival returns to the city for the third year from 2nd-12th May, with a programme packed with global creators, thinkers, speakers and performers sharing the stage with homegrown creative talent from Leeds' rich cultural community.
This year's festival, L19, will bring The Tetley site to life with an eclectic array of events and performances over a 10-day period; many specially commissioned as the result of an open call process introduced for this year's programming.
