10 of the best things to do in and around Leeds in February 2022

Here’s everything you’ll want to do in the shortest month of the year.

Valentines Day, the Six Nations, the Superbowl and so many events to look forward to. And they’re all in the shortest month of the year. How ever will we fit them all in?

February is one of those months that’s unpredictable. Will it snow? Will we be so warm we can head over to the beach? Both have been possible in recent years. Regardless of the weather, this February marks the first non-restricted month in quite some time for the UK, and you can bet that Leeds is making the most of that.

There’s rescheduled concerts, long overdue nights out that mark the end of Dry January and a bundle of special occasions to celebrate this month, so here’s the best things to do to make the most of it.

Fleetwood Mac Night at The Wardrobe

Vice City is a DJ based club night paying homage to the greats from the 70s and 80s and they’ll be at The Wardrobe to play nothing but Fleetwood Mac all night. You can scream the lyrics to Go Your Own Way or dance to Rumours for those just as Stevie-obsessed before going for another round of Rhiannon, Don’t Stop, Gypsy and just about every other Mac-song you can think of.
