Support Leeds Town Hall

The loss of ticket sales for cancelled events during these unprecedented times is of great concern, particularly as we look to the future and the redevelopment plans for Leeds Town Hall. With this in mind, we ask if you would consider making a donation to help sustain Leeds Town Hall – perhaps the most iconic and best loved building in the city, and one of such historic value to the people of Leeds and beyond. If preferred, ticket holders can choose to add credit to their account to use on a future performance. Refunds (minus the booking fee) are also available.

If you have bought tickets to any of our events a member of our Box Office team will be in touch with you shortly. If you have any queries please contact: and allow our team to either respond via email or call you back. If that’s not possible, please call the team on 0113 376 0318 (Mon-Fri between 10am and 4pm). There may be a short wait as our Box Office team are now working remotely. Voicemail messages will be collected on a regular basis and someone will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. Please be assured that you will be contacted either by email, telephone or post. We won’t forget you.

Until it is safe to welcome audiences back to our events we’ll continue to share content on our website and social media channels, where we’ll also keep you informed of any changes and their implications as soon as we can.

Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times.

Keep safe and well.

With kind regards
Leeds Arts Events & Venues Team

9th Leeds International Beer Festival

9th Leeds International Beer Festival

Thu 3 - Sun 6 September
Leeds Town Hall

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 we have taken the decision to cancel the next edition of Leeds International Beer Festival, due to take place 3 – 6 Sept 2020. This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make but the safety and well-being of all those that attend the festival is our paramount concern and given that things are rapidly changing from week to week we feel it’s impossible for us to plan and present a festival that will guarantee this. We know this will be frustrating for some but there are too many risks and unknowns in place for us to go ahead.

The good news is that we are looking at rescheduling the festival in 2021 and will announce new dates by this autumn. If you have purchased a ticket for this year’s event you will shortly be contacted and offered a refund (minus the booking fee as per our terms and conditions of booking), or if you prefer, the option of keeping your ticket – which will still be valid for our next event in 2021.

It goes without saying that we will miss you all in 2020 but we’ll be back with a packed and exciting line up for you all to enjoy next year. In the meantime there are loads of things you can do to support breweries across the country and we’ll be sharing all the ways you can support them through our website and social media. So keep an eye out for further details and updates!

We want to thank everyone: brewers, sponsors, volunteers, artists, musicians, street food vendors and the public for all your understanding and support over the years, and especially during this time. 

Take care, stay safe and we’ll see you on the other side for a pint!
