Howard Assembly Rooms, 46 New Briggate, Leeds, S1 6NU – Visit Now

The Howard Assembly Rooms are performance and rehearsal spaces in the centre of Leeds. Originally opened at the Leeds Grand Theatre in 1879, the venue has undergone several evolutions – including screening adult films for a brief, risque period in the 1970s – with its most recent being a two-year, expert renovation that concluded in 2009. The 300 capacity space is now used by Opera North’s award-winning Orchestra for polishing their performances, as well as hosting gigs, films, talks and family workshops.
