What’s on this spring?

Posted on:

This month an array of worldwide megastars from the music industry head to Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle. With events in plentiful supply, and the spring weather now warming up our weekends, it’s the perfect time to head for a city break. So if you’re planning a trip to one of the UK’s major cities, coincide it with one of these concerts to make the most of your break.

Katy Perry

The Prismatic World Tour which is the third of Katy Perry’s career sees the pop megastar promise to ‘take it to the next level’. The world-renowned superstar will be gracing Newcastle with her presence for one night only on the 10th May at the Metro Radio Arena, followed by two nights in Manchester at the Phones4U arena on the 20th and 24th May.  Current rumours suggest that Katy will be getting up close and personal with members of the audience so whatever ticket you manage to get your hands on its going to be a fantastic atmosphere; definitely not one to miss!

Kings of Leon

American rockers Kings of Leon head to Newcastle’s St James’ Park  to perform to the crowds in open air surroundings as part of their Mechanical Bull Tour on the 31st May, before heading to Manchester on the 18th June to play the Phones4U Arena. The first leg of their tour started in February and, as is always the case with the popular Americans, it has received a massive response from fans to date. The Kings tour comes after their sixth album release ‘Mechanical Bull’, the group’s fourth UK number one album. Supporting the tour are up and coming indie rock band ‘Young the Giant’ and alternative South African rock band ‘Kongos’.

Prince

Yesterday saw some huge news on the concert front for the UK; as rumours circled for a while and fans whipped themselves into a frenzy, Prince lovers can now relax, as it’s now finally been confirmed that Prince will be performing his first tour in the UK since 1995 this May. The exclusive tour will only be stopping at four cities across the country; which makes it especially exciting that Prince will be performing in Leeds for the first time ever on 23rd May at the newly opened First Direct Arena. The musical superstar will also be performing at Manchester on 16th May at the Phones4U arena.

Our guide to a refined evening in Leeds

Posted on:

As one of the UK’s most vibrant cities, it’s hardly surprising that visitors travel from all around to spend time in Leeds and enjoy a weekend break. Whether you’re heading to the city for a weekend with friends or your partner, you’re likely to have plenty of entertainment on offer for the duration of your stay. However, the popularity of the city also means that, on a weekend, bars can get rowdy and restaurants will inevitably get busy. With rambunctious groups of friends, stag and hen parties and large numbers of students about, it might be the case that whilst wanting to go out, you’d rather keep your evening more refined. If this is what you’re opting for during your evening in Leeds, then we’ve got you covered.

360 Champagne and Cocktails

Start your night off in one of the city’s newest and most trendy locations – Trinity Kitchen. Part of the year old Trinity Shopping Centre, Trinity Kitchen brings together a wide range of cuisines, from permanent residents to street food style vendors. Located in the heart of the kitchen area sits 360 which, as you can probably guess from the name, is a circular bar offering some of the best quality champagne and cocktail options in the city. The popular nature of the area means that you can enjoy your favourite drinks in a buzzing but not overly loud environment.

Restaurant Bar and Grill

Restaurant Bar and Grill, situated on Leeds’ City Square is a good old fashioned grill, and whilst it isn’t exclusively meats on the menu, the quality of the steak cuts on offer along with the overall ambiance of the place makes it a prime Leeds destination. Restaurant Bar and Grill offers customers classic seasonal dishes, with amazing steaks and an assortment of exquisite sides. You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to the drinks menu, but we recommend one of their brilliant cocktails. Serving only the very best, natural, British beef reared on farms selected farms, the restaurant takes great pride in putting out a top quality product.

Epernay

Whilst many head to Leeds for a loud and energetic night, it isn’t to the taste of everyone.  If you’d rather relax and enjoy a more elegant evening, then there are plenty of refined bar areas available to enjoy. Epernay, located just a short walk from Millennium Square in Leeds’ Electric Press is a high end champagne bar frequented by those wishing for a quieter and more laid back environment.  Offering a selection of high end wines, spirits, champagnes and cocktails, as well as artisan beer and cider options, heading to Epernay is a classy way to end your evening.
