Millennium Square Leeds – What’s On Summer 2015

In the heart of Leeds city centre, Millennium Square is the place to be this summer. Playing host to a succession of great events and festivals, the city will be rocking throughout the (hopefully) sunny months. Let’s have a look at five of the best in time for you to book your tickets!

10cc – 17th July

In the heart of a city and county with an almost unrivalled passion for cricket you can be sure that a band who’re partly famous for a song (Dreadlock Holiday) with the lyrics, “I don’t like cricket, oh no. I love it” will get a great reception! Still going strong after over 40 years, 10cc kick off the summer series at Millennium Square Leeds this year.

An Evening with Alfie Boe – 24th July

Star of the West End and award winning tenor, Alfie Boe performs songs from his new album along with favourites from both his own back catalogue and the classical world. To capture the magic of Alfie’s incredible voice, Millennium Square will be turned into a 3000 seat open-air theatre ─ a fitting venue for the most popular tenor voice in the UK.

Leeds Ska, Mod and Punk Festival – 25th July

If Alfie’s a little too civilised for you, Millennium Square cranks up the skank the following evening! Returning this year, the Leeds Ska, Mod and Punk Festival gives lovers of great music a chance to really let their hair down and party. Featuring punk visionaries The Buzzcocks, original rude boy Neville Staples, mod legends The Lambrettas and one of ska’s longest serving and most loved bands The Aces, it’s sure to be one of the most popular and colourful evenings of the summer!

Union J – 26th July

Headlining a day that’s set to be a fantastic feast of pop is X-Factor’s finest, Union J. This gig offers great value for money featuring local lad Luke Friend, Sophie May Williams fresh from The Voice, Only The Young, and duo Bars and Melody. Breeze card holders will receive a £2 discount on the ticket price too.

Leeds Pride – 2nd August

The biggest annual one day festival in the city just got bigger! Community driven and completely free to attend, Leeds Pride is colourful, loud and bags of fun, celebrating LGBT culture throughout Yorkshire and the north. Although the musical acts are still to be finalised, you can be sure of a great day out, so dress up in your most outrageous glad rags and join in the fun!

When planning your day or evening out at any of these events we recommend leaving your car with us at Trafalgar Street car park. You’ll be just a short skip away from Millennium Square, without having to traverse the Leeds loop road – the stuff of nightmares for many motorists!
