With the summer months fast approaching, we thought we’d pull together a list of the very best things to see and do when staying with us at our Roomzzz Apartments in Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle over the coming months.
Starting with Leeds, here is just a small selection on the latest goings on.
Those seeking a little more culture should look no further than the Northern Art Prize at Leeds Art Gallery
Celebrating contemporary visual artists based in the North of England, the Northern Art Prize has established itself as an important award – recognised nationally as a relevant profiler of artists working in the North East, North West and Yorkshire regions.

Moving across the Pennines, those of you heading to Manchester are in for a treat, with a wealth of cultural, musical and sporting events all taking place over the coming month.
Here are just a few to whet the appetite.

On at Manchester’s Palace Theatre from 21 May – 15 June 2013, Dirty Dancing is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensationally sexy dancing.
If musicals aren’t to your taste, how about some all out rock?
Southern US rock siblings Kings of Leon will be playing two shows at Manchester Arena on 24 and 25 June 2013. The performances will start at 19:30 on both nights. The Tennessee quartet will be performing tracks from their sixth studio album, alongside hits from their decade-plus rock back catalogue.
For those of you heading to our favourite city in the North East (Newcastle for those of you who don’t know!), there is plenty for you to do over the coming month.
World famous musical Cats is making an appearance at the Sunderland Empire.
One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, Cats has enchanted audiences in over 300 cities around the world – now you too have the chance to experience this legendary musical phenomenon.
With an amazing musical score that includes the timeless Memory, spectacular set designs, stunning costumes and breath taking choreography, Cats is a magical musical like no other.
