Big hitters from businesses and organisations across the city united last night to hear how they could get involved in Leeds’ bid to become European Capital of Culture 2023.

More than 100 leading business figures attended the event, hosted by Northern Ballet, to find out how they can support the bid through sponsorship, help forge new links between the arts and business communities and build on the growing momentum behind one of the biggest cultural projects to ever happen in Leeds.

The evening was also a chance to showcase some of Leeds’ impressive cultural talent, with performances from a Leeds College of Music jazz trio as well as an extract from Northern Ballet’s spectacular new production of Casanova. For more details about getting involved, visit www.leeds2023.co.uk
