Step into Leeds' theatrical past with new heritage walking trail

Recent School of History graduate Dominique Triggs spent two summers investigating the city's current and past theatres for the trail.

The ‘Theatres Through Time’ heritage trail features 10 key sites that tell the story of Leeds, from the building of its first theatre in the late 1700's, to today’s thriving theatrical scene. Dominique Triggs, who graduated from the School of History in the summer was able to undertake the project after receiving one of our Undergraduate Research and Leadership Scholarships (UGRLS), which are awarded to exceptional first-year arts students.
