From the abundance of recently established cafés, venues and artist-led spaces to pop-up restaurants, city-wide food festivals and digital innovators, the entrepreneurial spirit in the city is very much alive.It’s a place where the go-getters, the creative types and those with big ideas do well, and the community of independent businesses is strong. Working for yourself is increasingly seen as an attractive and viable option for young people starting out and the number of young businesses has boomed....

Leeds, along with the rest of Britain, has its club nights, bands, record stores and clothes shops dedicated to the music and fashion of the beats, the mods, the skins and the punks.
