Pre-meeting trip to Leeds


Ahead of IETM Hull 2019, you’re invited to stop off at Leeds as we gather to walk, talk and dine our way around the city.

We will entertain you, stimulate you and, most importantly, feed you as we travel around the city, meeting artists, visiting venues and discussing innovative ways of working, pioneered by nationally and internationally renowned practitioners.

Hosted by Leeds Dance Partnership in collaboration with Walking Talking Project and artists and programmers from across Yorkshire, Walking with Leeds is a day of opportunities, designed to make connections across the region.

Your port of entry to the UK may bring you to Manchester or Leeds/Bradford airports, so why not take in some extra Yorkshire hospitality while you’re there.  

The route includes both outdoor and indoor spaces and is suitable for wheelchair users. Please contact us if you have any other access issues: [email protected].

Price: free  

Reserve your place

Deadline: 26 March
80 participants

A detailed programme will be available soon.

If you decide to travel from Hull, the easiest way is by train, and return journeys can be booked from as little as £11.30. Book your journey, and any journeys from neighbouring airports at www.nationalrail.co.uk.

This pre-meeting begins in Leeds at 12:00 and finishes at 19.00 when minibuses will return you to the city centre. You will need to arrange your own accommodation in Leeds that evening or travel to Hull after the event.  Unfortunately, we are unable to provide transfers between Leeds and Hull for this pre-meeting. Direct trains depart at 18:48, 19:48, 19:55, 20:48, 21:48, and last train at 22:48 at a cost of £7.70 standard fare. The journey is 95 kilometres, which makes a taxi very expensive.

If you choose to stay and spend an evening in the bustling city, you can find signposts to great accommodation and cultural experiences there.

Walking with Leeds has been made possible with support from Leeds City Council and Arts Council England.
