Leeds Town Hall: A bright red heart will land on the front of Leeds Town Hall, its purpose to 'take the pulse' of the city and its lovers. Be a part of this nocturnal interactive installation by stepping up to the desk with your partner to have your collective Beats per Minute measured and turned into a song.

University of Leeds: On Parkinson Court, an art installation will bring together several interactive pieces made by Brazilian Indigenous communities working with an international line-up of artists. There will be a cocoon-like light installation that offers a poetic diagnosis of the state of your heart, and a contact-sensitive fishing net that recreates the ocean soundscape.

Kirkgate Market: There will be a family-friendly silent disco at Kirkgate Market, where you can have a boogie under a disco ball.

The Royal Armouries: Huge 12-foot high illuminated armoured knights will engage in a battle outside the National Museum of Arms. You can witness the clash of giants for ten minutes, every half an hour.

Trinity Leeds: Cirque Bijou will deliver an aerial spectacular as The Flying Violinist takes to the skies, spinning and dancing in a colour-changing LED dress.
