We recently went to watch a show at the Leeds Grand Theatre. It was my first visit to the venue and I was gobsmacked by the size and the architecture of the building. The outside of the building doesn't do it any justice considering what's inside.

There are some beautiful old theatres around the country.

Have you ever been to the Leeds City Varieties? This theatre was home to an iconic regular entertainment programme The Good Old Days that ran for 30 years from 1953 on BBC1 (when it began there was only one tv channel in the country) and featured old-fashioned (it was old-fashioned then!) musical entertainment, with the audience dressed in period costime.

Funnily enough I was just discussing that with the other half a few days ago. No, we have't been to the City Varieties. It's hidden down a narrow cobble street. It's another one to add to the list of things to do.

Had a trip out to the Leeds Light Night a couple of weeks back. I was surprised at how large the event has grown. The city centre was busy and it had a great vibe.

Here's a few photos I took on the evening.
