Leeds’ latest music venue ‘Chapel’ opened last week, extending the Church brand to offer a new, more intimate space for live gigs, acoustic nights and DJs. Housed at one end of Trinity St. David’s Church, the 17th century building that stands proud next to the University of Leeds on Woodhouse Lane, Chapel is the result of a collaborative effort between the minds behind Church, Digital and Fac251.
Seeking to host the very best in street food and music that the North has to offer, Chapel will act as a hub for artists, students, lecturers and anybody else with an interest in the arts. It will also sell physical tickets to all Church events at its box office, and has a variety of nights already booked in.
First off, Back To Basics will make the move to a more intimate home on Saturday 25th February, with Levon Vincent as their talismanic booking. A Sunday speakeasy follows, with a second instalment of new series Confession on Thursday 2nd March. April will then see Basics return with a new ‘Generation X’ offshoot night, celebrating the new venture with a visit from the good folk at Cabinet Records on Saturday the 8th.
