Information regarding the Reading of the West Yorkshire Proclamation

Following the death of our late Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II, the formal West Yorkshire Proclamation of King Charles III will take place on Sunday 11th September at 12:45 at Leeds Civic Hall.

The High Sheriff will be accompanied by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Robert W Gettings MBE JP and Lord Lieutenant in proclaiming the reign of King Charles III in a historic moment for Leeds and West Yorkshire.
