Hallelujah for Handel! - Leeds Handel Festival 2017

Loading Events

Join us for part one of this year's Leeds Handel Festival!

This year Holy Trinity Church celebrates 290years of existance (it was consecrated in 1727). Handel's music has been performed in this wonderful church since then and that's why we say: "Hallelujah for Handel"!
