We’d like to invite you to our Music:Leeds event to listen, think, shout and contribute to a day that will help develop a mandate to connect and support music in the city at all levels.

We are bringing over individuals from Europe and across the UK to talk about how they are creating a vibrant and supportive music scene and music sector for the benefit of the people and the city.
