A fresh addition to the Leeds cultural landscape, On the Edge aims to bring both new performers and audiences to Leeds; to highlight the talent in its varying communities; to fly the flag for the arts and to celebrate the city.
According to the organisers, this is not just another festival “but an event that encourages all the communities of Leeds to join together in lighting the wick for an explosion of art and cultural fireworks!”
