Amal brings a gift for the children of Leeds, from the children of Bradford.

She takes an evening walk through the city to learn about the many communities that make up Leeds.

In partnership with Leeds City Council and Leeds Playhouse.

This year, the people of Leeds have once again opened their hearts and homes to individuals and families fleeing unimaginable persecution and destruction in their homeland. This continues the city’s very proud legacy of compassion for those in need and we hope the visit of Little Amal will act as a symbol of solidarity and tolerance to all displaced people in Leeds as well as an expression of our shared wish for a brighter future.”Councillor Mary Harland, Leeds City Council’s Executive Member for Communities

“Cultural diversity is part of the foundation of what makes Leeds the incredible place we know today and we’re immensely proud to be a city which embraces the contribution and stories of those who have travelled here from other nations. Some of those people have faced quite astonishing hardship and suffering on their journey to Leeds and we hope the visit of Little Amal will act as both a celebration of Leeds as a cultural focal point and a powerful message of healing and hope.”Councillor Jonathan Pryor, Leeds City Council’s Executive Member for Economy, Culture and Education
