City Varieties

Swan Street, Leeds LS1 6LW

The city’s original music hall and variety theatre has been spruced up and dusted down for a 21st-century audience, so while there are still ‘Good Old Days’ nights out, with ventriloquists, clog-dancers, crooners and vintage comedians, City Varieties is also a headline space for big-name bands, hip comedy, tribute acts and off-the-wall stage shows. Sing-along-a-Grease anyone? The building‘s an absolute beauty too – get there early for a pre-performance drink in the excellent bar.
