Bag a pair of tickets to 5 of the best events of this year’s festival

Crazy P

If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll get a pair of tickets to 5 incredible events worth over £250. You’ll start with the opening night of Falling Light on Thursday 2nd May 2019 at Leeds Corn Exchange. It’s an immersive light and sound installation created by design studio Flat-e and it uses a translucent horizontal screen to reflect light around you with original music from producer Daniel Avery. Your next four events will all take place at the L19 Cube in The Village at The Tetley, starting the following day with BlaqueXplosion, a day of discussion and DJs that explores the black community in Leeds through music and culture – this is your chance to see Frank Bruno, Jermain Jackman and Iration Steppas in the flesh.

On Saturday 4th May 2019, you’re off to see Crazy P & Friends. This is a rare chance to see one of the best live dance music bands in the UK with support from DJs like Ralph Lawson. Fast forward to Wednesday 8th May 2019 and you can see the legendary punk poet John Cooper Clarke performing hits like ‘Evidently Chickentown’ and ‘Beasley Street’ alongside new works from his latest collection ‘The Luckiest Guy Alive’. Your final event is The Changing Face of the UK Film and TV Industry two nights later, as actor John Thompson, film director Adam Morse and casting director Nicci Topping tackle everything from the rise of video on demand to the future of independent film.
