Discovery Zone - Leeds International Festival

Discovery Zone

Located in a bespoke shipping container, The Discovery Zone will host an eclectic programme of activities throughout the 10 days of the festival, from talks and workshops to VR experiences and discussions.

The Discovery Zone

The Discovery Zone is located outside of Debenhams on Briggate, in the heart of Leeds City Centre. The 40ft long shipping container is hard to miss! Festival information will be available at The Discovery Zone every day from 10:30, call in and have a chat with our Festival Makers. Rest your legs on the pink deckchairs and take in the sights and sounds of the festival. Many events are free, and you can secure a seat with a small donation to Big Change Leeds.

Food & Drink

There’s plenty of eateries to settle your tastebuds, in and around the city centre. From street food to Leeds’ finest indies to high-end dining, you can be sure you’ll be in walking distance of an amazing food experience to suit your appetite and wallet.
