Fun Day

Fun Day

Our Annual Family Fun Day on Bank Holiday Monday 29th May 2017, to be opened by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, completes the Festival. This year it’s even bigger and better with craft and community stalls, food from around the world, music, displays, donkey rides,  lots of activities for the kids to burn off their energy and much more.

The Fun Day is held once again on the Cricket pitch, Parkside Road (next to the Myrtle Tavern pub) from 12 noon till 4pm.

Why not stay around after the Fun Day finishes for our Mini Music Festival featuring the fantastic Bassa Bassa and the best in blues with The Bluesharks from 4.30-7.30pm.

Please note: There is NO parking on site and parking in streets nearby is extremely limited. Please walk to the site wherever possible and respect our local residents and neighbours.
