Leeds City Varieties

10 August 2013 11:00am - 12:30pm

Guided tour of the theatre

 

Your chance to explore the intriguing, and often colourful, history of Leeds City Varieties.  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.

Suitable for all the family. Please note there is a minimum of one adult and one child per booking. You can book any combination of tickets, as long as the group includes at least one adult and at least one child.

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 (under 5s free but must have a ticket).  Tickets must be booked in advance.
