Trafalgar Street Car Park is just over a 10 minute walk from the Grand Opera House – next week we’ll cover the best that the West Yorkshire Playhouse has to offer in March.
Grand Opera House – events in March
Romeo and Juliet: 4th – 12th March
Whether you’re a fan of ballet, a fan of Shakespeare’s most famous love story, or a fan of both, you’ll be blown away by this beautiful and heart-touching performance by the award-winning Northern Ballet.
Hairspray: 17th – 21st March
Staged by the Leeds Amateur Operatic Society, this musical is larger than life and full of catchy tunes and hilarious dialogue. If you enjoyed the film, then you’ll enjoy the live version even more!
Joan Armatrading: 22nd March
Tickets are selling like the proverbial hotcakes for this, Armatrading’s 1st and only solo world tour in her 4 decades of performing. Her incredibly distinctive voice will take you on a journey across her full career’s repertoire – not to be missed for fans of the songbird.
Brendan Cole – A Night to Remember: 24th March

A mix of Latin and ballroom, you’ll be jigging in your seat all night while being stunned by the energetic choreography and incredible talent of Cole and his cast.
Dara O’Briain: 25th – 27th March
Probably Ireland’s favourite comedian on the circuit today, if you think he’s funny on Mock the Week, then you’re guaranteed to love his live show! Smart, quick-witted and often sarcastic, join Dara for a night of laughter that will leave you clutching at your sides and drying your eyes.
The Hollies: 28th March
One of the biggest UK bands of the 60s and early 70s, The Hollies are set to perform a 2 hour spectacular, spanning their incredible career and covering all of their best-loved songs. A must for any Hollies’ fans, their harmonies are still on point and their hits sound as fresh as they did when first released.
