Mr. Nelson Mandela was made an Honorary Freeman of the City of Leeds on the 30th April 2001. The ceremony took place in Leeds Civic Hall before Mr. Mandela re-dedicated the nearby Mandela Garden and attended an open-air show featuring top South African artistes on the city’s new Millennium Square.

Mr. Mandela has numerous links and honours from the City of Leeds, including his being elected as Honorary President of the Leeds University Students Union in 1965. The 'Mandela Centre' opened in Chapeltown in 1984.

The new Mandela Gardens includes a cascading water feature and a 16ft high bronze sculpture of outstretched hands, by the Leeds-born sculptor Kenneth Armitage.
