Leeds City Varieties theatre tour

8 May 2013 10:00am - 12:00pm

Your chance to learn some of the secrets of Leeds' own theatrical jewel

 

Following the recent restoration, City Varieties Music Hall is now offering backstage tours which explore the theatre's intriguing, and often colourful, history.  From a music room above a pub, to the world-famous home of The Good Old Days, the City Varieties has welcomed the best comedians, musicians and performers for more than 140 years.

Come and hear how the music hall, one of only four surviving in the U.K., has been restored to its former Victorian glory and learn about the improvements that have been made to ensure the City Varieties continues to entertain audiences for many more years to come.

The tour will transport you to the magical backstage world to see behind the scenes and ‘tread the boards’ of this much loved venue.

Tours last 1hr and cost £5 per adult and £3 for under 18s.  Tickets must be booked in advance. Please note that as the City Varieties is a working building, access is not always available to all areas.

Price:   £5 per adult and £3 for under 18s
