Leeds is gearing up for a week-long series of arts and cultural events to commemorate the life and works of the late Nelson Mandela.

Held across the city from April 24th–30, Celebrate Mandela will help to honour the values and inspiration at the heart of the former South African President’s globally recognised achievements.

To boost the celebrations, Leeds City Council is making small grants available to groups, schools and organisations to stage public events which bring generations and communities together. Celebrate Mandela also aims to share with young people how the icon touched the lives of people of all ages so that his legacy and values live on in Leeds for generations to come.
