Christmas in Leeds

Christmas in Leeds is an annual programme for all students staying in Leeds over the winter break, providing the chance to meet others, experience Christmas traditions and find out about help and support.

In December 2018, the programme included a range of events such as a trip to see a pantomime, a football and rugby match, and a meal on Christmas Day. Take a look at the Christmas in Leeds guide for 2018 (PDF download) for more information on the events and activities that took place last year. 

What students said about the programme: 

“I got a lot of information, recommendations and suggestions regarding the Christmas activities. I did not feel lonely when some friends went back to their hometown.”

"Attending the Rainbow Junk-tion Christmas Lunch was a great way to spend Christmas day. All of the other volunteers were very supportive and I had some great chats to people."
