Leeds Uni boasts three venues: Stylus, Pulse and Mine. Located in the large basement area of the Leeds University Union, Stylus offers an astonishing range of music and gigs for the massive Leeds student population. Its dark, crumbly walls frame a sprawling yet intimate landscape for acts as broad ranging as James Blake and Flogging Molly, through to club nights such as the notoriously messy student night Fruity.
With a fairly large capacity, the multi-level room strikes a sharp contrast to the rest of the Union building and, as you wander down winding stairs and dark corridors, you can’t help but feel that you’ve stumbled through a hidden doorway to a different building. Nevertheless, with a superb collection of bands and club nights throughout the year, it’s easy to see why so many students just stick to their University offerings, as unadventurous as that might be.
