Support Leeds Town Hall


The loss of ticket sales for cancelled events during these unprecedented times is very concerning, 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: boxoffice@leeds.gov.uk 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 5pm). Please be prepared for 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 will continue to share content with you 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.


Our sincere thanks for your understanding and continued support during these difficult times.
Keep safe and well.


With kind regards
Leeds Arts Events & Venues Team

London Mozart Players
Howard Shelley – conductor / piano

Prokofiev – Symphony No 1 (Classical) Listen
Mozart – Piano Concerto No 25 Listen
Delius – On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring Listen
Haydn – Symphony No 104 (London) Listen

Free pre-concert talk at 6.15pm by Clive McClelland.

Upon graduating, Prokofiev began writing his Symphony No 1 in the style of Haydn, saying “...if Haydn were writing today... he would keep to his way of writing, whilst at the same time incorporating newer ideas. I wanted to compose just such a symphony.”

Mozart’s 25th piano concerto is one of his most expansive, weaving themes from the orchestra into the intricate solo part. The first movement seems to quote the French national anthem which, strangely, wasn’t yet composed, leading some to believe this concerto could have been its inspiration.

On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring is a fine example of Bradford-born Delius’ inspiration by all things nature; a hazy atmospheric sound-world depicting a forest. Listen out for the cuckoo calls at the beginning and end of the piece.

Haydn’s Symphony No 104 was the final symphony he composed – of the premier in London Haydn wrote in his diary “The whole company was thoroughly pleased and so was I. I made 4000 gulden on this evening: such a thing is possible only in England!”. The symphony closes with a spirited finale conjuring the cries of London street vendors.
