Festival of Arts - public events

The University's Festival of Arts is currently taking place on campus and various other locations across Leeds, with an array of public events open to staff and the general public until Friday 19 July


The University, the city of Leeds and the county of Yorkshire as a whole have a rich and varied heritage of arts and culture dating back hundreds of years. The Festival aims to celebrate this heritage and make accessible the fantastic variety which the University of Leeds in particular has to offer to both those within the region and from further afield.

Along with an exciting and engaging schools programme for children from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5, a number of events and activities are open to staff, students and the general public. These include: public exhibitions and performances such as Elle Harrison's 'The Ettiquette of Grief', self led activities such as the Museum of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine campus trail, and public talks like 'His Greek Materials': Philip Pullman's Use of Classical Mythology at the Leeds City Museum.
