Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen will finally open its doors on 2nd October 2013 with a jammed packed exciting week of free events. Opening parties happen on the Wednesday and Thursday before the inaugural Belgrave Street feast begins on the Friday. Expect samples from the menu, which made an incredible debut at the recent Beacons Festival plus guest DJ slots throughout the week. The team are also delighted to be working with Laynes Espresso, Village Bookstore, Lord Whitney and Welcome Skate shop.
Latest shows to be added to Belgrave Music Hall include Simian Mobile Disco, Factory Floor, British Sea Power soundtracking the Man of Aron cinematic gem from 1934, East India Youth, Spector and Summer Camp. Full list below.
The venue will be operated by Leeds promoters Simon Stevens and Ash Kollakowski (pictured). Having created brands such as Constellations, Beacons Festival and The Iron Wagon and previously programmed events at Nation Of Shopkeepers, The Cockpit and other venues across Leeds, the pair have also launched a new promotions company Super Friendz which will manage the new venue's programming and provide a new home for their existing events.
Taking over the old Riley's pool hall, the building has been used for a whole host of different guises. The former assembly hall built in the early 1900s is located in Leeds' own Northern Quarter on Cross Belgrave Street.
