This event has passed.

Part of Open Day: Backstage Pass, a one-off chance to experience what really goes on behind the scenes.

See our new spaces and delve into what we do!

Join us on our Open Day for a guided tour of our building, including the brand-new Howard Opera Centre and newly reopened Howard Assembly Room. Discover the secrets of our costume department, take a peek at our sets and check out the Leeds Grand Theatre dressing rooms, as well as visiting our architecturally stunning new atrium space. You’ll get a chance to see our fantastic new music studios and if you’re lucky you might catch some rehearsals taking place…

Refreshments will be available in the atrium, so grab a tea or coffee and enjoy our new space in between Open Day activities.

Tickets will be available on the day but booking is advised.
