Landmark hotel, The Queens in Leeds City Square, is lighting up each night from this Thursday, 7 May to display a colourful rainbow as a symbol of thanks and hope.

The rainbow light show is an appreciation display by the hotel to thank all frontline workers, and to serve as a colourful image to cheer up people who are passing by.

“Rainbows are often seen as a symbol of hope, reminding people that there is a rainbow that will appear after the rain. We wanted to light up our hotel to serve as a beacon of hope during the Covid-19 pandemic, and hopefully make people smile when they see the colourful display,” says Paul Rogers, General Manager of The Queens.

The hotel will display its kaleidoscope of colours every night at dusk.
