What’s On Roundup 28 May – 3 June 2022

Here’s a roundup of some the main events taking place over the coming week in South Leeds. For full listings go over to our What’s On calendar here.

We start on Saturday with a pop up event in Middleton Park, 10am-12pm, where the Love Exploring Leeds Team will on hand to help families with the Mega Mini Beast Hunt challenge on their smartphones and tablets.

Gone To The Dogs is a one woman show presented by Slung Low at The Holbeck club on Saturday night, 7:30pm. A theatrical song cycle at once both astute and absurd, Gone to the Dogs is a show about isolation and lost identity – both of self and nation; of the tyranny of memory and the fear of irrelevancy. Book at www.slunglow.org/shows

Get your dancing shoes on to join the Friends of Middleton Park, who present Hands Across Ceilidh band to celebrate Oak Apple Day at the bandstand on Sunday, 2-4pm.

Middleton Park Baptist Church hosts a Resonance Multicultural Concert with music and songs from all over the world on Sunday evening at 6pm. The church is on Middleton Park Avenue, opposite Middleton Primary School.

Tuesday’s Wild Play session at Skelton Grange Environment Centre is free (usually £30 for the day) so book before it sells out. The session runs 10am-4pm and will include outdoor games and bushcraft such as campfire cooking and woodwork.

There’s a chance to catch up with the Neighbourhood Policing Team and chat to the PCSOs over a cuppa at Hunslet Community Hub & Library on Tuesday 10am-12pm, organised with Hunslet Tenants & Residents Association.

The Friends of Middleton Park will be hosting free play sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, 1-3pm at the Visitor Centre.

On Wednesday St George’s Community Hub & Library in Middleton is running a bunting making workshop at 1pm, followed by a Jubilee tea party

Wednesday also sees Jubilee parties with MHA South Leeds at St Andrew’s Community Centre, Old Lane, Beeston, 1-3pm; with Middleton Elderly Aid at their Social Centre on Acre Road; and with Holbeck Together outside St Matthew’s Community Centre. Booking is required for all three events.

We will have a full run down of all the Platinum Jubilee events in a separate post this weekend.

And finally, our June newspaper will be out on Wednesday. We will be distributing it as usual, but as this takes a few days and there are two bank holidays on the Thursday and Friday, we might not get to every pick up point until next week.
