Due to Covid safety concerns we have made the difficult decision to move the #LeedForAll event online.

This means there will be no public access to the Leeds City Museum event space on Friday.

You are invited to join us online instead to view the performances and hear about some of the amazing support and services available for people with disabilities in Leeds.

Here is the revised schedule and Zoom links for the #LeedsForAll celebrations:
