LeedsCAN membership is not directly open to individuals but is made from organisations and groups working together in the arts.
If you are an individual, learn more about each of our groups below and contact them directly if you're interested in learning more or get involved.

Leeds Arts Centre is a prestigious amateur theatre group which presents a wide variety of plays at the Carriageworks Theatre on Millennium Square in Leeds.
We offer opportunities to all who are interested in becoming involved with any aspect of drama, including acting, directing, stage management, props, design, costumes, lighting, sound, publicity and front of house.
Leeds Children's Theatre is managed and staffed by a team of dedicated volunteer members who offer their vast range of experience to our younger members, covering most aspects of theatrical production, performance and stagecraft.
The society not only produces stage plays, it also offers many of our younger members the opportunity to participate in drama workshops. We facilitate regular weekly workshops designed for our younger members aged 8+, and also a monthly drama workshop for members aged 13+.
We are a large musical theatre group with a long heritage. Leeds G&S is (probably) the UK's oldest G&S society. Established under a previous name in 1909 in Hunslet, Leeds.
Although the works of Gilbert and Sullivan are extreamly important to us, we now produce musicals from a much broader spectrum. We have won multiple awards for our most recent productions that include: Guys and Dolls, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and coming soon, Titanic.
Whatever you write, whether fiction, non-fiction, horror, romance, children’s fiction, humour, thrillers, or poetry – or if you just enjoy listening to other people read their work – everyone is welcome.
Every two weeks we have a manuscript evening where members are invited to read their work to the group, and receive constructive feedback from people who are writers themselves.
