You won’t want to miss Quantum Theatre’s enchanting adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s beloved children’s book. When a dragon is discovered up on the Downs, the Boy is not in the least surprised.

One of the most exciting cultural events in Yorkshire for art lovers, The Station’s popular open exhibition and art sale returns for 2018. A Spot On The Wall showcases an ever-changing display of work from amateur and professional artists, including painting, photography, sculpture, and crafts. Once each piece sells, it’s immediately replaced with another.

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that it isn’t the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers.

Millennium Square, Leeds

80s pop-rock icons The Lightning Seeds and The Pretenders continue to enjoy phenomenal worldwide success today. Don’t miss their stint in Leeds this summer, as they join forces on the same stage.
