Parklife: When Roundhay Went Pop

Dr Peter Mills discussed the pull of major artists to Roundhay Park in Leeds.

In the 80’s and 90’s Roundhay Park became an international pop venue, attracting stars like Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and more. How did this series of events begin? What impact did they have on the city? Why did they stop? And why might they yet return?

This event was part of Leeds Cultural Conversations, a series of lunchtime talks organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts. For more information on the series please visit the website.
