Behind the scenes of a Grand Depart arena extravaganza, a star-studded cast of world-leading creatives are building a show to remember.

Following the announcement of headline Yorkshire acts intended to make the Tour de France Team Presentation a memorable opening ceremony, including Brighouse indie band Embrace and Bradford’s Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh, a world-class cast of a different kind is working hard to make it all happen.

Yorkshire links will weave throughout the Leeds First Direct Arena ceremony on Thursday July 3, with Sheffield Hallam University students, an award-winning lighting designer from Hull, Opera North and Leeds-based film company Shot by Sodium working under the guidance of Martin Green, who was head of ceremonies at the London 2012 Olympics and studied at the University of Leeds.
