The Leeds Dock digital community will pool its creative forces next month to showcase its credentials at the Leeds Digital Festival.

Tenants including Sky’s digital campus, EE’s digital app team, web developer Epiphany and incoming Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) companies will all take part in events for those in the digital, tech, creative and start-up industries.

The six-day programme of events, from April 25th to 30th, celebrates digital culture in all its forms. The city’s emergence into an innovation hub is the subject of a film by The City Talking, ‘Digital in Leeds’, which will premiere during the Leeds Digital Festival at Leeds Dock on 25th April.
