Connecting with the arts in general and books in particular

An excellent new website has just appeared which connects up all the many and various arts activities in and around Leeds.  It provides news, reviews, profiles and links to dozens of cultural providers. It will tell you what’s going on and provide a platform for all things cultural. It’s called State of the Arts and you can link to it here

The BigBookEnd festival is about to break out – a jamboree of talks and readings from books by Leeds-based authors from 29th May to 8th June. Headlining is Alan Bennett (well, he’s from Leeds), plus Anthony Clavane (well, he’s from Leeds, too) and including Taking Soundings speakers Tom Steele and Max Farrar, plus Emma Healey, Frances Brady and SJ Bradley.  The full programme can be downloaded here Big BookEnd prog_bbe14 (2) and you can visit its website here
