What is a Summat?
Politicians are always heading off to summits about important issues. Leeds Summat's in 2009, 2011, 2014 and 2016 gave everyday people the chance to discuss these issues too, but in a much more fun, more Yorkshire way!
Will it be accessible?
The venue is wheelchair accessible via stair lifts. We have travel bursaries, kids creche (age 4+), and British sign language interpreting available on request. Please let us know if there is more we can do to help make the event accessible for you.
