my arm at Leeds

The performance on Wednesday, 1 December was cancelled because of the crazy weather. Just so you know, though, Tim did battle his way up to Leeds in time, but the snow continued to fall, and Leeds was almost whited out. There will be a replacement performance on Monday April 11 at 7.20pm at the same venue.

A rare chance to catch Tim in a UK performance of my arm.

It’s at Northern Ballet, Quarry Hill, Leeds, LS2 7PA, promoted by Leeds Met.

Book now to avoid deep disappointment.
