The Lady Mayoress of Leeds, Edna Murray said:

"The response that we had from the public to the tours of the Civic Hall in February was absolutely fantastic, and it is great news that we have been able to put three more dates in the diary, beginning on March 29.

"There really is a lot to see, and with some great stories about the history of the Civic also told on the day, this really is an event not to be missed."

Notes to editors:

Three tours hosted by the Lady Mayoress will be held at the Civic Hall from 11am on: Saturday, March 29, April 26 and May 17.
