Crypt Factor is rearranged for June 2022

The organisers of the property industry’s annual singing competition, Crypt Factor, say this year’s show has been postponed and will now take place on Thursday 30 June 2022.

The event was scheduled for Thursday 24 June 2021.

However, The Centenary Pavilion at Elland Road, which has become the Crypt Factor’s home, is currently being used as one of West Yorkshire’s largest Covid-19 NHS vaccination centres, and uncertainty remains about whether large indoor events will be able to go ahead from 21 June this year.

Crypt Factor typically sees a 900-strong audience from the North of England’s property and construction industries descend on Elland Road to raise vast sums of money for local charities St George’s Crypt and The Leeds Fund, which is managed by Leeds Community Foundation.

The event has raised more than £700,000 for charity since 2006.

The show’s organising committee and main sponsors comprise Gent Visick, Pinsent Masons and Town Centre Securities PLC. is 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 Candid PR and Anderson Advertising & Property Marketing.

Crypt Factor committee member, Garry Howes, said: “Elland Road is doing a fantastic job housing the vaccination centre and hopefully this will help us to beat Covid-19 and pave the way for large-scale events to resume next year.

“It’s very disappointing for everyone involved, and especially for Leeds Community Foundation and St George’s Crypt, that we’re having to postpone the event for a second year.

“However, all table bookings will now roll-over to next year and both the charities and the organising committee are extremely grateful for the generous support that we continue to receive from the region’s property and construction industries.”
