Leeds’s annual Breeze In The Park entertainment programme is set to put sunny smiles on the faces of young people across South Leeds once again this summer.

Leeds City Council’s roadshow-style extravaganza will see three interactive play events for children and teenagers taking place in parks and green spaces in South Leeds. Each one will feature Breeze’s famous collection of giant inflatables plus a packed schedule of sports, games, art, music and other fun activities, all designed to add some memorable extra sparkle and shine to the school holidays:

Saturday 29 July: Parkside Field, Belle Isle
Tuesday 1 August: Cross Flatts Park, Beeston
Tuesday 29 August: Middleton Park

The event in Beeston will include relaxed, quieter sessions for children with additional needs.

Councillor Jonathan Pryor, Leeds City Council’s executive member for economy, culture and education, said:

“We’re determined, through our Child Friendly Leeds programme, to make this the best city in the UK for children and young people to grow up in.

“Breeze In The Park is a great example of how we’re working to achieve that aim, with its events providing an inclusive, enjoyable and value-for-money way to spend time in some of the wonderful green space that we have here in Leeds.

“I know the organising team have pulled out all the stops to deliver something extra-special, hopefully everyone attending will agree that they’ve succeeded.

“The events are also the perfect complement to the activity taking place during our LEEDS 2023 Year of Culture and, in particular, the current ‘Playing’ chapter of those celebrations.”

The Breeze In The Park events will each have two main sessions, one running from 12-2:30pm and the second from 3-5:30pm. The sessions for children with additional needs will run from 11am to midday.

Sessions cost 50p per child and tickets must be bought in advance. Purchases can be made via Breeze In The Park – Breeze Leeds or, for additional needs sessions, from Breeze In The Park Relaxed – Breeze Leeds. A full list of event dates and locations can be found on the same web pages.

These Breeze In The Park events are funded with the generous support of Councillors on the Inner South Community Committee.

Further information is available here about the council’s wider Breeze programme and the work it does to help make Leeds a child-friendly city.
