Leeds is a global destination for people, investment and innovation
That’s the city we know – one that welcomes your ideas, and provides the cutting edge skills, tools and infrastructure to bring them to life.
The city is the third largest in the UK, one of the fastest growing and one of the greenest too. Our ambition is to help Leeds to become the best city in the UK – distinctive, sustainable, progressive, fun and creative for all. But most of all, we want people to experience our home as a compassionate, caring and safe place to live and work.
Leeds is a major hub and the UK’s first city for health innovation. We’re striving to become a city where the poorest improve their health the fastest, and we’re proud of our unique health ecosystem. Collaboration is encouraged at all levels, across private, public and voluntary.
A city that’s full of energy, with a rich arts and cultural sector, a strong sporting legacy and a reputation for organising and hosting exceptional events. 2023 is set to be our landmark year of culture for Leeds and our wider region – a year-long programme of experiences showcasing creativity of all shapes and forms and a great retail experience.
Working closely with local, national and international artists, Leeds 2023 will build new connections, collaborations and creative excellence, all of which will play a vital role in our city’s journey to becoming an international cultural giant.
