Kirkstall Festival Promises Another Great Event

 

Kirkstall Festival returns on Saturday 8th July and this year’s theme is ‘All Singing and Dancing’.

From 11am the grounds of Kirkstall Abbey will vibrate with a variety of sounds, dancing, singing, and victorious Vikings. A great day of activities and entertainment aimed at the whole family is planned, with local community groups and organisations joining performers and stallholders.

Returning this year will be the world-famous dog show, fairground attractions, and Leeds Museums’ Battle of the Bands. There will also be the Festival Parade, with a pipe band formed by children from local schools and community groups.

 

 

Entry to the Festival is free, but please do buy a programme (£2) as this helps Kirkstall Festival to put on a fabulous event every year. The Festival is entirely organised by volunteers, and has attracted over 27,000 visitors in a day.

Festival organisers ask that people walk or take public transport to the Abbey if possible. Buses 33, 33A, 38, 49, 91, 508, 670, and 727 all pass within a five minute walk of the grounds, and both Kirkstall Forge and Headingley Stations are a short walk from the grounds.

If you are driving, there will be a free car park on the sports fields on Vesper Lane, and parking available at Kirkstall Forge. Please note that there is a time limit for parking at Kirkstall Bridge Retail Park and please don’t park on residential streets.
