Independent Venue Week: The Wardrobe, Leeds

Independent Venue Week: The Wardrobe, Leeds

Independent Venue Week returns once again this year, from Monday 27th January - Sunday 2nd Feb 2020, dedicated to showcasing the very best independent and grassroots venues in the UK; the venues at the very heart of every city's music scene.

At See Tickets, we are proud to work with some of the most important spaces for arts and culture across the country, providing support in the most crucial venues for nurturing up-and-coming artists.

Recently, See Tickets has been selected as primary ticket agent for new Manchester venue YES, which becomes the 50th in its portfolio of independent venues.

We have long-standing relationships with independent venues across the country including Alexandra Palace, Albert Hall Manchester, EartH, Lincoln Engine Shed, Chalk (formerly The Haunt), Omeara, The Leadmill, Village Underground, Electric Ballroom and The Brudenell.

In the latest edition of our Independent Venue Week series, we caught up with The Wardrobe in Leeds. Last year, The Wardrobe celebrated its 20th birthday with a series of incredible events including performances from Craig Charles, Submotion Orchestra and Gilles Peterson. The Wardrobe prides itself on providing quality food, great drinks and hosting a variety of live music, comedy and club nights throughout the year and has become a staple in Leeds' cultural quarter.

Tré Mealiff, Event Manager at The Wardrobe had a chat with us about his hopes for the future of this independent venue and the infectious nature of their regular gig-goers.
