We're SO excited to announce the Big Creative Welcome Festival. Starting next week from Monday 20th September and running until the 3rd of October, we've lined up two weeks of awesome events, workshops and activities to welcome everyone to Left Bank and the surrounding area. It's an alternative freshers and you're all invited; whether it's your first year in Leeds or you've been here for a while, we want you to come hang out with us and celebrate everything about this city, creativity & culture.
Below you'll find a lineup of what we've got on. Some events you'll have to book, so we've included links to get your ticket or get on the guest list. We've also got a new menu out and some special offers on food & drinks so come try it out.
If you're in the space (and on Insta), we'd love for you to tag us at @leftbankleeds. It's going to be so much fun & we can't wait.
