A bit about Alex, Allied London’s Event Manager at Leeds Dock:
I have lived in Leeds for 15 years and am passionate about the city and get excited about the development of new restaurants, bars and buildings. I love the fact Leeds is like a large village and see faces I know and recognise all over the city. South Bank is an exciting place work and can almost see the development daily! It’s starting to get its own identity now and feel we can help shape this part of the city!
