A Leeds Phil & Lit grant supported rehearsals and ten performances of a promenade version of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at Home Farm, Temple Newsam. Over 500 people saw the production, which deliberately aimed to engage a local audience in East Leeds and draw in people who had never seen a Shakespeare play.

The Society makes grants both to individuals and to organisations in support of cultural and scientific activities which increase innovation, outreach and diversity in Leeds and its immediate area. It also supports local museums and galleries and publications relating to the city.
Since 1819, the Phil & Lit has been inviting the people of Leeds to hear from knowledgeable and entertaining speakers. Many are leaders in their field of science, arts or current affairs. We also hold an annual Science Fair and organise occasional visits. Becoming a member means that you’ll receive invitations to all these activities. In future, we plan to have a mix of real and virtual events.
