Become a Neighbourhood Host!

Are you passionate about your neighbourhood? Do you want to make great things happen there?  

We’re looking for 33 Neighbourhood Hosts, one from each ward of Leeds, to help us champion LEEDS 2023!

Working with us approximately 1 day a week in the lead up to and throughout 2023, this paid role will help us let culture loose across the city and work with us to bring to life an amazing community event next summer.

We’ll be recruiting one host from each ward of the city, so we’re looking for people with a strong relationship with one of the wards, whether that’s through growing up, living in or working there. If you’re unsure which ward you belong to click on the map here

Applications to become a Neighbourhood Host will open in June but you can register you interest below to be the first to find out. The programme will begin in October and run through until December 2023.
