L19 – it’s back!

Today marks the launch of the full programme and official countdown to Leeds International Festival 2019 (2nd to 12th May).

The stellar line-up of cutting-edge stars and established names from across the worlds of art, science, technology, and, beyond was revealed on a high-octane trailer launched today.

The electrifying video – adding Olympic star Amy Williams MBE and Dr Almas Ahmed (the inventor of the world’s first acid-proof makeup) to the Festival bill alongside the likes of punk-poet John Cooper Clarke and Frank Bruno MBE – was unleashed on guests at the LIF19 launch party at The Tetley, the new location for The Village hub.
