The Leeds is a truly international competition. We represent the very highest levels of music-making, with the Competition and our winners making a huge impact across the world.

We are proud to bring the world’s very best pianists to Leeds, and showcase the city to an international audience. With the inclusion of free-to-view live streaming of the whole of the 2018 Competition, and with the first rounds to be held in New York, Berlin, and Singapore, The Leeds will reach an unrivalled national and international audience.


We look forward to working closely with our corporate partners to best reflect your particular aims, objectives and interests. Each of our partnerships are unique and may include


  • Hospitality, tickets and events surrounding performances at the Competition
  • Advertising and branding at the Competition, or in association with our international streaming
  • Sponsorship of our 2018 Leeds Piano Festivals, which will take place in London and Leeds prior to the Competition


Please contact David Ward (Development Director) to discuss options for supporting The Leeds.
