Talking Histories: Public Houses of Leeds
June 15, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us at Left Bank Leeds for an evening with local historian Ken Goor as he leads us through the history of some of Leeds’ most famous pubs & ale houses.
Ken will be giving you insight into how our pubs have changed over the years and regaling tales of strange and colourful events and a few gruesome stories too. You’ll find out more about the links between pubs and theatres, Buffalo Bill’s visit to Leeds and why a Leeds pub was mentioned in Jane Eyre.
It will be an informal evening with the opportunity to ask questions to find out about more about the history of your favourite haunts. Our bar will be open if you fancy a beer! (other beverages available, of course).
Tickets are £5/£4 (concession) +booking fee. Places are limited so please buy your tickets online via Eventbrite.
This is part of a series of monthly talks run by Left Bank Leeds that will explore the history of the buildings and people of Leeds from the monks of the 12th century through to present day. These events are part of a larger project celebrating the heritage of our amazing building. They have been made possible with thanks to the support from Heritage Lottery Fund.
