Beeston Festival 2024 in photos

The sun shone and the crowds descended in their thousands to Cross Flatts Park to enjoy Beeston Festival yesterday (22 June 2024).

Revellers commented on the fantastic atmosphere and the range of activities and entertainment on offer.The Festival was open by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Cllr Abigail Marshall Katung and the Deputy Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Yvonne Stocks.

On the main stage the Maz Bonafide stole the show with his bhangra raps. There was much more to enjoy with sports, children’s activities, the fun fair and the scores of stalls in the bazaar. A diverse range of local groups performed dance routines in the Arena, along with displays of freestyle skateboarding. Musicians from around the world performed on the Emerge stage to entertain diners in the Food Court.

One festival goer commented:

“What a lovely, fantastic day it was at Beeston Festival, thank you. Lots of families I know enjoyed the day. The day was full of fun and enjoyed by so so many.”

We have two selections of photos from the day, one taken by Paul Whitehurst of PBW Media and one by myself, Jeremy Morton.
