LIF19 – it’s back!

Leeds International Festival has annouced its full 2019 programme of events.

Today marks the launch of the full programme and official countdown to Leeds International Festival 2019 (2nd to 12th May).

The stellar line-up of cutting-edge stars and established names from across the worlds of art, science, technology, and, beyond was revealed on a high-octane trailer launched today.

The electrifying video – adding Olympic star Amy Williams MBE and Dr Almas Ahmed (the inventor of the world’s first acid-proof makeup) to the Festival bill alongside the likes of punk-poet John Cooper Clarke and Frank Bruno MBE - was unleashed on guests at the LIF19 launch party at The Tetley, the new location for The Village hub.
