IMAGES

We want to share our culture with the world and show what Leeds can give to Europe.

Our bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2023

Image Library

A picture can say a thousand words so we compiled a library that shows what Leeds is made of. From press images to events, performances, exhibitions and portraits, we would love you to use the images in this library to tell our story and all we ask in return is that you credit the images and photographers as they are labelled here.
