Christmas with Us (2016-)
You are invited to take a seat at the table, enjoy a moment of reflection and share in an intimate conversation over a warm drink. The creator of The Weather Café, David Shearing, invites you to find stillness in the midst of the festive chaos. Presenting the stories of people living in and connected to Leeds, Christmas with us reveals personal stories, highlighting the beauty and the difficulty of the Christmas season. The installation brings together different members of the community: some showings include one-on-one conversations between the audience and Heydays members (West Yorkshire Playhouse).
Christmas with us has been made possible through funding from Leeds BID. Supported by East Street Arts, Leeds Station and Heydays (West Yorkshire Playhouse).
