Convenient car parking for Leeds Arena

There’s been a real buzz around the opening of the long-awaited First Direct Arena and if you need car parking for Leeds Arena, Trafalgar Street Car Park is perfectly placed just a short walk from its entrance, giving you a secure place to leave your car while you head off to enjoy your evening’s entertainment.

The First Direct Arena gets ready to open its doors

Leeds has got its fair share of music and performance venues, but for such a large, vibrant city, it’s been lacking a high capacity events centre, such as the Leeds Arena, for many years. This new addition to the night life of Leeds looks set to be a popular attraction, so as the opening night approaches, with Bruce Springsteen confirmed as the first headline act, it’s time to start booking tickets for your favourites and looking at your transport and accommodation options.


First thing’s first; what do you fancy watching at the Leeds First Direct Arena? Plenty of acts and events have already been booked and you can be sure that seats will sell fast. There’s something for everyone, from old favourites like Elton John, Leonard Cohen, Depeche Mode and Rod Stewart, local band the Kaiser Chiefs and other modern groups such as Vampire Weekend and the Stereophonics.

There will also be a chance to rock with Nickleback this November, or scream like crazy for the boys in JLS just before Christmas – which may be your last opportunity to see them since they recently announced their intention to split. There’s also great comedy from well known TV stars Micky Flanagan and Russell Howard, or something a little more unusual, how about watching WWE Live or marvel at the super-human skills of the performers in Cirque Du Soleil. This is just a selection of what’s on offer, so check out the official Leeds arena website for more information.
