Festivities return to South Leeds this Christmas

With most Christmas activities cancelled last year due to Covid-19, Beeston & Holbeck Councillors Angela Gabriel, Gohar Almass and Andrew Scopes are delighted to see the return of two Christmas light switch on events in the coming weeks, funded by the Inner South Community Committee.

The first event will take place on Thursday (25 November 2021) at 6pm in Beeston, (outside the Nisa store, Town Street) with the Salvation Army Band will lead the carol singing followed by a selection of food including burgers and hot dogs available to takeaway.

The second will take place in Holbeck on Sunday 5 December at 5:30pm with a variety of food and refreshments available afterwards in St Matthew’s Community Centre.

Councillor Angela Gabriel said:

“Following the cancellation of the events last year due to Covid-19, we are delighted that we can now bring the festive cheer back to Beeston and Holbeck in the coming weeks.

“There’s a real community spirit in South Leeds, even more so at this time of year. We’d like to encourage the local residents to come along and enjoy the festivities and help us to begin the countdown to Christmas in style.”

In addition to the above events, Thursday (25 November) will see two more local Christmas lights switch on events at 4pm at Belle Isle Circus and at 5:30pm at the Bile Beans sign on Balm Road / Belle Isle Road. Then on Friday (26 November) at 4pm at Middleton Park Circus.
