  1. Just noticed that the funfair is back. Your comments state that rides are £1 per ride midweek, however, their own website states rides are £1.50 mid week. Information needs clarifying and correct info publishing on either south leeds life website or the funfair website.

      1. The organisers have made the following statement:

        25 of the large rides will be just £1.50 when the fair is open midweek from 1pm until 6pm with visitors encouraged to log on to for free fun fair vouchers which are valid anytime and will reduce the large rides even further during this time to a staggering bargain busting £1 each.
