Sponsorship - Leeds International Festival


Leeds International Festival (LIF) is the UK’s leading metropolitan festival of new ideas and innovation. Launched in April 2017 by Leeds BID, the festival combines an international programme of speakers and performers with the unshakable creative spirit of one of the North’s most vibrant cities.

Now approaching it’s third year, the impact, success and growth of this exciting, new international festival provides many opportunities for sponsors, investors and partners to work with us and become part of our journey.

Our mission is to grow LIF into the UK’s largest platform for global thinkers, innovators and pioneers to discuss the world of today and our future.

We hope you can join us.
