What is a Summat?
Politicians are always heading off to summits about important issues. The creation of the Leeds Summat in 2009 gave everyday people the chance to discuss these issues too, but in a much more fun, more Yorkshire way!

Will it be accessible?
The venue is wheelchair accessible. We have travel bursaries, childcare bursaries, kids creche, and British sign language interpreting available. Please let us know if there is more we can do to help make the event accessible for you.
