Concert of Irish music in Cross Flatts Park

Members of the Beeston, Holbeck and Hunslet Leeds-Irish community recently attended a collaborative inter-generational participatory event of traditional Irish music and song at the Watsonian Pavilion in Cross Flatts Park, Beeston.

The event on 7 July was co-hosted by Leeds Irish Health & Homes and the Irish Arts Foundation, supported by Councillors on the Inner South Community Committee. Councillors Gohar Almass, Angela Gabriel, Andrew Scopes and Paul Wray – pictured with DesHurley from Irish Arts Foundation, Phillipa Dowson from Leeds Irish Health & Homes and musicians from Irish Arts Foundation – attended the event and enjoyed ‘the craic!’
