On behalf of the Leader of Leeds City Council, Councillor James Lewis, we are delighted to inform you about an exciting event – Team Yorkshire The Homecoming!
Olympic and Paralympic heroes will be given a homecoming to remember with a major event at the Leeds First Direct Arena on October 10. Olympians and Paralympians will take to the stage to talk about their exploits in an event hosted by 2016 Olympic medallist Nile Wilson and sports broadcaster Tanya Arnold.
Athletes attending include Jess Learmonth, Jonny Brownlee, Georgia Taylor-Brown, Jack Laugher MBE and Hannah Cockroft MBE among many others – with more athletes being confirmed daily.
Channel 4, who have just setup home in Leeds, are supporting the event – which will take place on Sunday October 10 from 3-5pm.
The event will include live entertainment including headline Yorkshire act, Starlights, along with Phoenix Dance, Yorkshire Prose live poetry and other fantastic acts.
Tickets are available to the public for just £5 per ticket (plus booking fee) which includes a donation to charity Sports Aid, an organisation that has supported so many of the Yorkshire athletes via www.firstdirectarena.com
Tickets are available from 9am Friday 24th September.
