Hallelujah! Halo is reopening as ‘Church’

The second coming is here

Leeds’ most iconic club reopens on 7th October to house the UK’s longest running club night, state-of-the-art video mapping onto the walls and roof and a brand new music academy to support aspiring DJs and artists.

Years of making one of Leeds’ oldest churches the opening of every fresher’s adult life came to an end in December 2014. However, Dave Beer, creator of the country’s longest running night: Back To Basics has brought back the hallowed church with the help of Tokyo Industries.


Gone is the old alcohol-soaked and warped floor, spiral staircase and DJ booth stolen from an 80s pop video. Inside, a first-in-the-world video mapping system is being installed to turn the walls and even the roof into a screen. Former RnB room Quilted Llama has also now been renamed to Chapel and will house smaller nights and after-parties.

Future DJ sets from Fatboy Slim, Jamie Jones and Maceo Plex are also in the works to create a more music-driven event calendar to compliment Back To Basics.

Almost 25 years old and repeatedly highlighted in DJ Mag, Mixmag and Resident Advisor, B2B has gone all the way around the world. Now, it calls Church it’s new home with more student friendly tickets in the works.

Two tickets are up for grabs for the opening night on 7th October with the first of many confirmed live acts: Circa Waves. To enter, simply like and share this article from The Tab Leeds facebook page.
