    Very good venue for interesting artists and events. There is a small bar for pre-show and interval drinks, but not food. Parking nearby is easy to find, and not overly expensive for evening shows. Toilets were excellent.

    Howard Assembly Room is a great venue for intimate performances. My husband and I have been enjoying the place ever since we moved to Leeds. We went to see different concerts and artists and were never disappointed. My understanding is it was recently renovated and I think it definitely benefited the place. You can still see and appreciate the old building and its structure yet it’s well lit up and has wide staircase and an elevator. The seating is new and convenient which helps you relax and focus on the stage. The staff is always polite and helpful. Great place all around.

    The Room is a really special venue. It looks stunning, great acoustics and a stage large enough to fit a lot of people on. It can be configured in a very flexible variety of seating options.
