The Love Train virtual Disco ball will take place on Friday, December 18.

The Love Train virtual Disco ball will take place on Friday December 18, streamed directly from Carriageworks Theatre overlooking Millennium Square in the city centre.

Pay-per-view video streamers will be able to boogie the night away from the comfort of their own home to a soundtrack of A-Z disco classics led by DJ ‘Brutus Gold’, along with his dance troupe and collective of 70s throwbacks.

The virutal disco ball is organised in partnership with Leeds City Council and is suitable for people of all ages with parental discretion.

Leeds City Council events manager, Craig Shackleton, said: “After sadly missing out on this year’s live summer event in Millennium Square due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, we are really excited to be able to re-imagine the ultimate disco party night directly into people’s homes.

"Leeds has a long-standing association and a special relationship with Brutus Gold and The Love Train and following an amazingly successful sell out show in the summer of 2019, it simply wasn’t enough for us to only reschedule to next year."

He added: "We appreciate in these tough times that everyone needs a bit of escapism from what is going on around them and what better way to put some smiles back on people’s faces with a Friday night full of fun, laughter and 70s disco on board the legendary Love Train”

Pay per view tickets are priced at £9.99 and are available from today. (November 16).
