Child friendly Leeds awards
On 30 January, City Varieties hosted the very first child friendly Leeds awards. Y Productions, our talented and dedicated planning group of young people planned and ran the event from start to finish, and celebrated people and places who are making Leeds a great place to grow up.
Our thanks go to British Gas for sponsoring the whole event and making it possible, and to City Varieties for not only hosting the event at no cost, but also supporting the young people’s planning group to run the event through workshops, training and much more. Thank you also to Leeds First Direct Arena for playing their part by offering tickets as prizes, and recognising the hard work that Y Productions have put in by giving them the opportunity to watch a selected show from a VIP suite at the Arena.
