There are a couple of events listed that I wouldn't mind attending IF I still lived in Leeds.

Is the Compton Center what I used to call Compton Rd Library? That was the first library I ever joined (aged 9). I remember some gruesome exhibitions there ( shrunken heads and Nazi lampshades made from human skin ) -a far cry from the Rasberry Pi family robots competition scheduled this Feb.
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!

The Compton Centre is a new building next to the old library which is still standing.
