While January As You Are soundwalks have been postponed due to the latest lockdown, we look forward to re-opening when we can! See some of the social media reaction from those who took the walk last month…
Remember to tell us what YOU thought using #AsYouAreLeeds.

@Opera_North just on my way back from come to As You Are, a soundwalk around Leeds city centre. With music from South African cellist Abel Selaocoe to take us around Leeds City Centre what an achievement- The music! The singing -it felt like I had never walked round Leeds before!

We just went on the most wonderful soundwalk in Leeds. @Abel_Cellist bringing together the magic of @Opera_North and his South African heritage. If you’re in Leeds please go to the opera north website and book. Pay as you feel. I can’t tell you how it filled my soul with hope🧡

#AsYouAreLeeds #soundwalk was captivating and emotional for this ex-ish Zambian who woke up on this grey day homesick & shakily dealing with the fact my daughter’s not getting wed today. Abel Selaocoe @Opera_North thank you for bringing me home.

Absolutely delightful time wandering Leeds City Centre guided by the gorgeous music of Abel Selaocoe. The @Opera_North #AsYouAreLeeds sound walk was a melodic release at a hectic time of year #HereForCulture pic.twitter.com/BMuIuN4zGa

As my interests in normal times concern the performance of streets, we enjoyed exploring our own city streets with @Opera_North‘s #AsYouAreLeeds soundwalk. A good way to support the arts in our city during a time without theatres and museums https://t.co/FEgYHK3vOt pic.twitter.com/TbFumvh6a9
