This year's Crypt Factor has been postponed due to the escalating spread of the coronavirus and will now take place on Thursday 25th June 2020.
More than 900 people from the North of England’s property and construction industries were due to descend on Elland Road next Thursday the 19th March for the sold-out annual singing competition. Candid PR has provided PR support to the event for the last eight years.
However, after following the advice from the Government and Public Health England on large-scale gatherings, the show’s organising committee and main sponsors, comprising of Bruntwood, Gent Visick and Pinsent Masons, understand that the health and wellbeing of guests must be the priority.
Committee member, Garry Howes, from Gent Visick, said: “We’ve obviously been monitoring the escalating coronavirus situation closely and have been left with no option but to postpone Crypt Factor.
“All our suppliers, including Elland Road and lighting and sound company Sparq, have been very understanding and have worked closely with us to enable the event to be rearranged for later in the year. All table reservations, dietary requirements and drinks orders will now be transferred to the 25th June.
“We’re always honoured and humbled to have such fantastic support from the region’s property and construction industries and we’re looking forward to putting on a superb show this summer.”
Crypt Factor raises vast sums of money for local charities St George’s Crypt and The Leeds Fund, which is managed by Leeds Community Foundation. TheBusinessDesk.com is the Crypt Factor’s official media partner and the event’s stage set-up, lighting and sound is provided by Sparq, which is a division of Saville Group. Additional support is provided by Anderson Advertising & Property Marketing.
This will be the second time the show has had to be postponed in its 14-year history after the ‘Beast From The East’ brought freak snow storms in 2018.

The Festive Season is almost upon us and for many, it’s an exciting time full of family, fun and frivolity, with the odd mince pie and secret Santa thrown in. But, for some it can be a lonely time fraught with worry about how to afford the perfect Christmas often portrayed online and on TV. Worse still, there will be children living in Leeds and West Yorkshire who won’t get a single present on Christmas morning.Read More
