Sir Tim Rice, multi-award-winning British lyricist, has received an Honorary Doctorate from Leeds Beckett University.

Sir Tim is best known for his collaborations with Andrew Lloyd Webber, with whom he wrote the renowned musicals Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita and for his work with Walt Disney Studios and Alan Menken which resulted in the soundtracks to a range of well-loved films, including Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King for which he collaborated with Elton John.

Sir Tim was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Arts on Friday 24 July, for his contribution to the arts.

On receiving his award, Tim said: ‘I am very honoured to be given any award at all in any circumstance and one from such a distinguished university is terrific. I’m an admirer of Yorkshire County Cricket Club and have been to Headingley quite a lot and I did Countdown here quite a bit ‘ I have a soft spot for Leeds.’
