Leeds City Varieties Reopening in the City
30 August 2011
The Grade II listed Victorian music hall has just received a £9 million makeover...
And scores of contemporary performers are vying to tread the boards of its historical stage.
Leeds City Varieties was also featured as the venue for the thirty year run of the BBC's The Good Old Days - featuring Leonard Sachs. Good Old Days music events are set to make a return to the venue this year - and will see a welcome influx of classic music hall to the city.
The famous theatre will reopen its doors on 18th September 2011 with a SOLD OUT Gala fundraising event featuring Ken Dodd - who has been one of the powerhouses behind this grand refurbishment.
Once the grand reopening is out of the way, a host of great and good talents will be taking to the stage over the coming months to provide the city of Leeds with a plethora of comedy, music and theatre.
Massive List of Contemporary & Classical Talent
Singers, performers, plays and players rushing to take to the newly refurbished stage include: Mark Thomas, Pam Aryes, Al Murray The Pub Landlord, Elkie Brooks, Ed Byrne, Marc Almond, Andy Hamilton, Andy Parsons, The Vagina Monologues, Howard Marks, Jack Whitehall, Jerry Sadowitz, Dean Friedman, Stephen K Amos, Le Théâtre de Décadence, Omid Djalili, Arthur Brown and Rob Brydon.
