WHO ARE WE?

THE LEEDS TEALIGHTS are the University of Leeds' oldest and most prestigious sketch group. Over the last decade they have grown to become one of the most well-received student sketch groups in Britain. 

They regularly tour a whole host of locations including London, Oxford and Cambridge and participate every year in a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe. 

As a springboard, they have launched the fledgling careers of some of Britain's most promising up-and-coming comedians and act as a hothouse for both comedic and straight acting talent. 

Alumni have gone on to LAMDA, RADA, Bristol Old Vic and Central, and have played The Pleasance, Underbelly, Bedlam Theatre and SOHO theatre. They have also been featured by ITV, BBC, Channel 4, Sky, Netflix, The Guardian, The Telegraph and The Times.
