And She Built A Crooked House
by Gemma Anderson-Tempini.
It can be seen at 17 Burton Crescent, Far Headingley, Leeds, as part of the year of culture.
A very thought-provoking but also fun and engaging installation in a house with a lot of history. It is particularly appropriate for a half term visit with Halloween in mind.
For more information go online for Leeds Arts Attractions, where you can book tickets.
It's free !
