Leeds to Innovation Online Exhibition
5 May 2020 - 31 Jul 2020
Leeds has long been an innovative place. Lying in the heart of Northern England, the city stoked the industrial revolution with fresh ideas and cutting edge technology. The growing city and mix of industries attracted people with bright ideas.

Those creative minds needed places where they could exchange ideas. Institutions like The Leeds Library and the Leeds Philosophical and Literary Society sprang up to support the spread of knowledge and skills. The University of Leeds, originally the Yorkshire College, continues to produce innovative research in the race for imaginative solutions.
Following the decline of our traditional industries, Leeds has re-invented itself as a city with flourishing finance, digital, media and medical science sectors.
Celebrate with us the people and inventions that have made Leeds such a creative city.
During this period of social distancing and lockdown due to Coronavirus we advise that you check directly with the organiser of this event that it is going ahead as publicised.
