What about listening on third party apps?

We are currently listed on two third party apps—TuneIn which you can use on most mobile devices and Radioline which is also available on the Virgin Media V6 digital box so you can listen through your television set up if you have one.

On both platforms just search for “East Leeds FM” and then click on Play. Obviously it will only work when we are streaming audio (currently Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays). You can also make East Leeds FM a favourite so you can quickly access the station in the future.

If there are other apps or services that you use, let us know so that we can make sure ELFM is available there too.


Access Details

We designed Chapel FM to be as accessible as possible for people with mobility issues. The whole building is wheelchair accessible with level access on the ground floor and a lift to the first floor. All doorways are wide enough for wheelchairs and we have an accessible toilet on the ground floor. There is level access onto the stage upstairs and two specific wheelchair spaces for audience and, depending on the type of event, we can accommodate up to 6 wheelchairs.

Lighting is good and consistent throughout the building which is good for people with visual impairments. We have very good acoustics in all the spaces and an induction loop installed in the radio theatre to assist people with hearing impairments.

We recognise there are other issues for people with learning disabilities, mental health issues, dementia, etc. We aim to be as inclusive as possible and have a dedicated worker who will discuss learning support needs with any participant and make sure that all staff are aware of individual needs.

Please contact us if you need any further information or would like to discuss any way that we can improve access for you to our facilities, courses or events.


Watching a video stream at Chapel FM

When we are broadcasting from the Radio Theatre we have a multiple camera setup there (like a television studio). We can stream through a number of providers but, at the moment, we currently use Facebook Live. If we are, then when you click to listen a little video thumbnail will appear at the bottom of your screen which you can expand and watch and listen live.

Alternatively you can watch through our Facebook page .


Getting to Chapel FM

The address is Chapel FM, Old Seacroft Chapel, York Road, Leeds, LS14 6JB (you will find us on google maps etc) and is set back from the main road down a short driveway. Tel: 0113 22 55 944.

How to get there…

By Car
From Central Leeds take the New York Road (A64), becoming York Road (A65) towards York. Remain on the York Road, taking a left shortly before the roundabout where it meets the A6120. 100 metres past the left turning to South Parkway you should see a driveway on your left leading to the Chapel (just past the Best-One corner shop). There is limited parking at the Chapel Please park on the York Road outside the Chapel; by the village green or at Tescos car park. If you are using a satnav and it demands a house number—use 1081 York Road (it’s a very long road!)

On Foot
The Chapel is just 5 minutes walk from the Seacroft Centre and Bus Station. If you are facing Tescos your go to the left down York Road. Continue past the village green, the village hall and a big church on your right. Take the turning on your right just before the Best-One corner shop – you will see the Chapel ahead of you.

By Bus
There are frequent buses to Seacroft Bus Station from Leeds City Centre – the 4 and 16 are the best ones and run every 10 minutes (and the 4 actually goes right past the Chapel—get off at the Village Green). If you are coming from Leeds the bus runs from stop T2 on Boar Lane directly in front of Trinity Church and Trinity Shopping Centre (2 minutes walk from the central station) and takes 25 minutes to get to the Chapel.

By Train
From Leeds main train station, you can take the No. 4 bus (see above) or you can take the train from Leeds to Cross Gates (a 6 minute journey and the train runs twice an hour—generally at 25 and 52 minutes past the hour). You can then walk from Cross Gates station to the Chapel (20 minute walk) or you can take the No. 9 bus from the stop on Station Road opposite the Shopping Centre (it only takes 5 minutes but only runs once an hour)
