If you get the chance to attend a full orchestral/choral concert do so. Sit in the balcony. Needs some sort of catering concession/bar - that IS open. Parking is a problem and expensive at The Light. Can park on-street after 6:30pm

Leeds town hall is certainly a lovely building the architecture is amazing but the venue for comedy is appalling. I have seen a couple of shows there now and even though the first show had real sound problems and no atmosphere I decided to give it a second chance again I left disapointed the comedian may as well have been playing in a large empty warehouse. Good comedy shows need good atmospheres. The acoustics and sound are terrible the whole place feels hollow. I have seen both comedian before and at larger venues so I know their both capable of making large halls intimate. Although I live in Leeds I would rather travel to see a show than visit the Town Hall again.

I've visited the town hall three times. Once for the Leeds film festival, once for the vintage fair and once for a film fair. Without a doubt the town hall is one of the most stunning buildings in Leeds. The main room is beautiful! I'd recommend visiting!

this is now the venue for marriages, and has an amazing organ and central hall. Also was the emergency control room, and old bridewell.
