Leeds International Festival Announces Full Programme

Leeds International Festival Announces Full Programme

29 Events, 45 Speakers, 13 Venues, 10 days. Leeds International Festival is back.

Leeds International Festival 2020 is proud to announce its full programme. Spanning many industries and sectors, L20’s Generation Future events showcase talent from an incredibly innovative and diverse line-up drawn from communities across Leeds, the UK, and internationally.

The line-up features thought-provoking talks, interactive workshops, premieres, installation pieces, a fun-filled family day, and more.

L20 The Cube
The Leeds International Festival Village hub is back at The Tetley. The L20 Cube will host headline talks and music events, whilst other events in the line-up are hosted at a dozen other venues across the city centre.

Committing to a L20 Legacy
Five events will premiere at Leeds International Festival this year. Requardt & Rosenberg’s intriguing secret performance, Selina Thompson’s political roundtable ‘Oh God! Not Another One!’, fabulous apoca-disco ‘The End is Queer: A Doomsday Disco’, and family-friendly ‘Future Fairness’ – which gives you the opportunity to decide on what roles culture plays in communities and what you want to see in the future.

Gemma Holsgrove, Leeds International Festival Executive says:
“Leeds International Festival has been growing each year since its inception in 2017. Our fourth year sees an even more extraordinary lineup of artists, speakers and innovators all responding to our theme Generation Future in their own individual way. I’m really looking forward to seeing Leeds host such an incredible array of talent this May and hope that some of the conversations, performances, workshops and performances challenge, educate and inspire audiences to make their own positive changes to our increasingly complex and interconnected world.”​
