Christmas in Leeds

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

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.” 

"I stayed in Leeds almost every day. Thanks to the information in the Christmas in Leeds programme, I could make my holiday enjoyable."

"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."
