City Varieties Music Hall is now closed due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Our Box Office team is currently working on contacting and refunding customers with tickets up to the end of April. If you have not heard from us or received a refund yet, please bear with us; as you can appreciate this is taking longer than usual due to remote working and the amount of people we must contact.
We are currently liaising with producers and promoters to find alternative dates for all shows and will contact customers either by email or telephone as soon as we have news on each show. For those customers who we don’t have an email address for, please find a link HERE to a form where you can add or update your contact details.
Listed below are changes to the current schedule up to the end of May. Tickets will be automatically transferred to the rescheduled date and valid for that performance. Refund options will be explained in emails or over the telephone.

These are unprecedented times for our venues. Together, Leeds Grand Theatre and City Varieties have remained open for over 300 years and our future is currently uncertain. If you can, please consider donating part or all of your ticket money to support us and the individual production Companies and artists who were due to perform at our theatres.
Leeds Grand Theatre and City Varieties Music Hall have been entertaining the people of Leeds and the wider region for over 300 years combined; closure for any reason is unprecedented in our histories. Now, due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), the future of our two magnificent heritage buildings is uncertain.
We are doing all we can to ensure we'll be able to raise our curtains on the best of the West End shows, dramas, stand-up comedy, musicians and a whole host of variety acts when we come through this, but we need all the help we can get. If you would like to donate to our venues, please click on the link below. We can't thank you enough for your generosity.
