A celebration of creativity and well-being in Leeds.

Love Arts 2017 is over! Well done and thank you to everyone who took part. 2017 was our biggest and most ambitious festival yet. Art, music, dance, theatre, cabaret, poetry, craft – and more.

We’re very grateful for the support and enthusiasm of our many funders, partners, and supporters, without whom this Festival couldn’t happen. BIG thanks to all of you.

Love Arts Patron, Rob Young* says, “This Festival is about the human, not the condition, because let’s face it, that’s not what defines us. And it’s fun! It makes you look at this city with a fresh pair of eyes: THINK Leeds with a sprinkle of glitter. SO why not join us on the journey? To a world of wonder, where caravans and buses morph into theatres and it’s not just toast that pops up in a cafe. It’s a story AND a good one at that. Love Arts? Love Leeds? What’s not to like?”
