Issue 10 – Work and Play

At this time of year when thousands of students arrive in Leeds to work hard and play harder, the importance of how to balance these two apparent opposites is as relevant as ever before.

In 1944, Jonathan Lockwood Huie suggested “a time for everything: a time to relax and a time to be busy, a time to frolic and a time to labor.” In 2017 these word remain true, yet the boundaries merge, as Arnold J Toynbee claimed 20 years later: “The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between work and play.”

Wherever the distinction lies, modern day Leeds is catering for all definitions of work and play, and in this issue we discover the array of options the city provides for newcomers and locals alike to make their living and make their life; for if all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, Leeds is one exciting city.
