A hub for the Leeds student to relax in during the daytime, by night Leeds Beckett University's Student Union offers some of the best touring bands in the world as well as solid rock club nights such as FUEL and Slam Dunk.
In fact, while the University of Leeds may have its multiple venues and bars, when it comes to quality and number of live acts, Leeds Beckett University poses its rival a stiff challenge. Recent bookings have spanned such a variety of acts as Hot Chip, Eagles of Death Metal, The Staves and Killing Joke (and that was all in one month). Leeds Beckett Uni's large venue is well suited to bands with a big following – and its proximity to Leeds city centre means it's a good place to start the night, whether you're a Leeds student or not.
For fans of loud live music in a classic student union-style venue, it’s a hard push to find anywhere better suited than Leeds Beckett. [Edy Hurst]
