The researchers cited Opera North, the Northern Ballet, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Henry Moore Institute and Yorkshire Sculpture Park as cultural highlights, while advising house-hunters to look to buy in Chapel Allerton, which has its own arts festival and where the average home now sells for £221,445.
