For October’s art walk we are shifting the walk from a Wednesday to a Friday to take part in Light Night (if you haven’t heard of this before see: http://www.lightnightleeds.co.uk for all the details). Light Night happens all over the city but we will be touring the projects taking place around Holbeck and the Dark Arches. Places are limited so you need to book, but to try and accommodate everyone we are leading not 1 but 2 walks!
Walk 1 commences at Pavilion at 6pm and finishes at PSL at 9.00pm. Walk 2 begins at 8.30 at PSL and finishes at Temple Works where you can either stay for the after party or walk back with the group at 11.15pm.
Booking required on 0113 242 5100, maximum of 20 people per walk.

Round Foundry: Sue Me! with Together for Peace

City Inn: The Minutes by White Rabbit
The Minutes is an interactive immersive performance that will seek to solve across 14 consecutive meetings through the night agenda points such as why has nobody really done anything since the last meeting, if nobody takes notes in a meeting in the forest did it really happen and what would happen to the biscuit industry if we stopped meeting? NB – Looking out of the window during the meeting is not only allowed, it is positively encouraged.
Dark Arches: Journey to the Underworld by Storyhunters
Venture beneath Leeds to another world where The World’s Greatest Practical Storytellers, The Storyhunters, have unearthed a terrifying secret from Leeds’ murky past. Brave the tunnels of Granary Wharf and discover the truth about 10,000 years of lost boys, wayward girls and mysterious disappearances. Beware, though, the evil that has indiscriminately lured Leeds’ finest women and most desperate men to their dooms may still lurk in the running waters of the Dark Arches. Come and hear their tales.
Dark Arches: Light Maze by Bryony Pritchard
Down a dark arch there is a puzzle of tunnels and paths sculpted by light. Are you quick enough for this maze? Once inside the maze, light paths change and confuse you, corridors will disappear and dead ends will form. You need to be quick to get out.
Dark Arches/Temple Works: Underworlds Live in Leeds by Eleanor OKell and Robert Elliott
