Join the Great Get Together in Cross Flatts Park

Everyone is invited to a Great Get Together event on Thursday (15 June 2023) taking place in Cross Flatts Park, Beeston.

The event, which has been organised by Leeds City Council’s Care Delivery Service, is part of a national campaign inspired by the late Jo Cox MP and her message of unity. Every June, on the weekend closest to Jo’s birthday, people are encouraged to come together in their communities and make new connections. These community events bring to life her ‘more in common’ message.

“We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.” Jo Cox, first speech to parliament, 3 June 2015

The free event, which is accessable to all, runs from 11am-4:30pm and will incude:

  • Stalls
  • Food
  • Bouncy Castle
  • Live Music
  • DJ
  • Performances
