Out of Hours – Light Night Leeds, 2017

Thursday 5 and Friday Oct ober6, 2017, 6 – 10pm

Out of Hours is a site-specific performance, for visitors old and new to The Leeds Library.

The entrance is to be found on Commercial Street, in between the Co-Operative Bank and Paperchase. It is one of Leeds’ best kept secrets. Now there is an opportunity to uncover it, after closing time. It is rumoured that a Victorian ghost with a guilty past still haunts the building .

In small groups, over the course of 45 minutes, A Quiet Word will introduce you to those who can tell the story with a contemporary twist and who may want to ask you in return: what are you afraid of? What keeps coming back to haunt you? What are your hopes or fears – about life in Leeds or elsewhere, or the near or distant future? Where are the places only you know about and what is your best kept secret? You will be invited into the darkest corners of the library, where you will find books and perhaps something more….

The performance is free but booking is essential. Numbers are strictly limited for Health and Safety reasons.

The Leeds Library is a Grade 2 listed building. Access is via a staircase to the first floor. There is a stairlift to the entrance of the Main Room of the Library. Access to other parts of the building is limited. Please contact us if you have access needs.

Out of Hours was created specifically for Light Night Leeds 2017.
