THE LEOPARD – DONCASTER


The Leopard is situated in Doncaster’s town centre, within walking distance of the train station which is perfect for those later band slots. Although small in capacity it has hosted some of the biggest artists, in a variety of genres including Kasabian, Snow Patrol and Plan B. More recently it’s hosted bands such as Doncaster’s own Bang Bang Romeo and The Blinders who played some of their first shows at the 200-cap venue, before their rise to fame and releasing their debut albums.

The pub and the live venue also offer a range of drinks including cask ales, niche larger and draught beers, as well as live sport.
