Event description
The statue of The Barrel Man, or Drayman, stands in Dortmund Square. But why is he feeling sad? And what do the statues of Leeds get up to?

About this Event

Children from Beechwood Primary School and storyteller Matthew Bellwood launch their brand new illustrated (and bi-lingual) book, The Downhearted Drayman.

This programme is part of the Leeds/Dortmund 50 Festival. This year, 2019, the cities of Leeds (UK) and Dortmund (Germany) will have been twinned for 50 years. LD50 is a project that celebrates our golden anniversary through the arts, particularly literature.

A series of exchanges between writers in Leeds and Dortmund will take place culminating in a weekend festival at ChapelFM Arts Centre and other venues across the city. Click below to find out more, and to see some of the work being created: https://www.leedsdortmund50.com
