As Capital of Culture, Leeds would have an unprecedented opportunity to showcase its rich and diverse cultural heritage and welcome an array of exciting events and exhibitions. 


Many people have already taken to twitter to express their support for a bid with the hashtags #YesLeeds and #Leeds2023.

"After we showed the world what we could do by hosting the Tour de France last year, I'm delighted the city is thinking of bidding for this title. We have so many cultural gems that deserve celebrating - my personal favourite is Kirkstall Abbey."
