Get ready for a special photohunt at Beeston Festival

Beeston Festival brings the community together each year.

Are you ready to photograph Beeston at its best tomorrow?

Beeston Festival draws thousands of people each year – and South Leeds Life is organising a special event to encourage local people to photograph the event and the wonderful people there.

We’ve teamed up with the Looking Good Beeston and Holbeck photography project, (run in conjunction with Exposure Leeds) and Leeds Photo Hunt to run the Beeston Festival Photohunt.

The aim of the photohunt is for people to come along and take positive photographs of the events and people that highlight Beeston at its best. Photographs could be of the people at the festival or its events (with permission from individuals concerned, of course!).

We’re also going to take a look around historic Holbeck Cemetery, which is one of the area’s under-rated gems and has fantastic views of the city centre and west Leeds – the Friends of Holbeck Cemetery will also be holding a stall to offer more information.

Meet at 1pm at the entrance to the cemetery off Beeston Road (directly opposite the park). For more details, email

Share your photos on our group Flickr pool or email them on the address above.

You may remember last November a similar photohunt was held around the Holbeck area. Fancy trying your own Beeston and Holbeck Photohunt? Find out how here.
