Council: Opportunity to promote Leeds on an international stage

The debate has opened over whether Leeds should bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2023.

The title is different to that won by Hull last month, who will become the city of culture in three years' time.

Last held by Liverpool, the award can raise the profile of a city on an international scale.

Tom Riordan, from Leeds City Council, believes there is ambition among citizens to promote Leeds on an international level.
