Wanted: your unpredictable desires

Wanted: your unpredictable desires
Written by Amy Letman  11/12/2015

If you could make anything happen on stage tonight, what would it be?Given the time and space and resources, what would you really truly want?Chris Goode & Company (the makers of ‘9’ and ‘The Albemarle Sketchbook’) are making a brand new show, and right now, they know nothing about it at all. It's a totally blank canvas. Anything could happen.They're breaking this currently empty show up into three-minute segments, and through the first few months of 2016 they'll be working with a diverse range of individuals, families, schools, workplaces, community groups and local organisations from across Leeds; each of whom...

Leeds Indie Food, the city’s first independent festival of food and drink culture, will be returning next year from 12th to 20th May for #LIF16.

This time around we are keen to get even more independents involved and to spread the word...

Putting The Band Back Together

Putting The Band Back Together
Written by Dick Bonham  04/12/2015

I’m sitting at Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley. The sound of a man singing a new song fills the air.The man is Ross Millard, a member of renowned north-east bands The Futureheads and Frankie & The Heartstrings. He’s working with Unfolding Theatre to create a new theatre show called Putting the Band Back Together, the development of which is being supported by Leeds Inspired. Across the UK there are thousands of people who have stopped playing. There are guitars propped up in bedrooms that haven’t been strummed in years. Trumpets that got packed away after the brass band played its last...

It's a wonderful place
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  02/12/2015

If there's one place in Leeds that gets us feeling festive it's Hyde Park Picture House. Surely the building was designed to be dusted with snow, festooned with fairy lights and popped in its very own snow globe? Image: Hyde Park Picture House Snowglobe / Beth DawsonThat's why you'll find us there this Christmas watching It's A Wonderful Life, Carol, Lady In The Van, Doctor Zhivago, Black Mass and Joy. Much more fun than stuffing a turkey or doing the shopping. So grab a sherry and watch this handy trailer for a peak at what's in store at Hyde Park Picture...

Design Something More
Written by Something More  30/11/2015

Hello, we’re Something More – a design studio based in Leeds, but working up and down the country. At the moment we are made up of three partners, Jon, Si and Stephen. We’ve been set-up for just over a year, although we have all been working in the design industry for over ten years now. Our belief is that every brand should be a wonderful experience. We think it’s important that design and creative thinking are a central part of how any organisation works. The best brands are the ones that have strong ideas and principles that run through everything they do....
