The venue, which was originally a textile mill and has recently been used a creative arts and music hotspot, can host a maximum of 1,400 guests for a standing event. Seated banquets can also be arranged, for groups of up to 350.

This developing space also caters for outdoor events, with a large area able to accommodate a marquee along with wooden decking and seating. The venue can also host streetfood vendors for summer events and BBQs in the city.

Matt Long, venue and events manager at Canal Mills, said: "With four successful years under our belt as a music and arts venue, and having already hosted companies such as Spotify and Red Bull, we’re now officially launching Canal Mills as a multi-functional events space, which we hope will be a great addition to the events scene in Leeds."
