As you walk into this historic building, just know that you’re treading a very well-worn path. Although it was built in 1841, Leeds Minster is one of four churches that have been built on the religious site which has been used for worship since the 7th century. As light enters the building’s stunning interior, the colours of red, blue and green reflect from the colourful stained glass windows onto the gorgeous mosaics that surround the church altar. Filled with so much history and grand architecture, Leeds Minster provides a brilliant setting for these candlelit concerts.
Built in 1907, Left Bank Leeds was originally founded as a church known as St. Margaret’s Church. The church was closed in 1995 but was later took over by Left Bank Charitable Trust in 2002 who renovated the space and made it the venue that so many locals know and love today. The towering pillars, high ceiling and dramatic archways are reminders of the building’s past and make this venue a great fit for these magical Candlelight experiences.
Thanks to the stunning architecture and gorgeous interior of both Leeds Minster and Left Bank Leeds, these venues offer visitors a window into the past. Make your way to these historic buildings located in the heart of Leeds and experience a magical evening of live music illuminated by hundreds of flickering candles.
