Leeds Town Hall, HM Queen Elizabeth II at the Leeds Musical Festival
Description:
18th October 1958. Image shows HM Queen Elizabeth II meeting members of the chorus at a concert at Leeds Town Hall to celebrate the centenary of the Leeds Triennial Musical Festival. The festival had first been held 100 years previously on the occasion of Queen Victoria's visit to Leeds to open the Town Hall, and although the second festival did not take place until 1874 it was to become a triennial event after that.
