fbe Leeds - The New Leeds Playhouse:
Date:17th October 2019
Leeds Playhouse, Quarry Hill, LS2 7UP
The new Leeds Playhouse is one of the most important cultural projects our city has to boast about. It represents a £16m investment which has transformed the previous facility into three new theatres, public space, restaurants and event venues.
Leeds fbe is delighted to be able to offer the first opportunity to view both front and back of house facilities. You will be able to hear from the Client, Architect and Contractor before having a guided tour, followed by buffet, drinks and further networking.
Due to the logistics of delivering guided tours numbers will be limited so book early to reserve your place.
