We start this week at Hunslet Oval (opposite Morrisons) where Hunslet ARLFC take on West Hull on Saturday. It’s first versus fourth at the top of the rugby league community game, kick off at 2:30pm.

Liv Vicariously & Donna The Domme bring a jam-packed car boot full of queer oddities: clothing (sizes 8 – 24+), art, books and loads of Drag to Sheaf Street Cafe off Crown Point Road in Hunslet, LS10 1HD. Tickets are free, drinks and food from Sheaf St Cafe. Come down and browse on Sunday, 12-3pm.

The Friends of Middleton Park present the Corpus Christ brass band on Sunday, 2:30-4:30pm on the bandstand by the Visitor Centre near the lake.

Performed as a 12 track album, ‘The Gods The Gods The Gods’ is an exhilarating weave of big beats, heavy basslines, soaring melodies and heart-stopping spoken word. Performed on the outdoor stage Slung Low at Temple, 131 Water Lane, LS11 9UD (so dress for the weather) on Sunday at 7:30pm.

Football Freddie’ kicks off its community tour at Jamyang Buddhist Centre on Monday. The family friendly show starts at 6pm. Tickets are just £3, read our review here.

Middleton Community Group meet on Monday at 6pm at the Middleton Elderly Aid social centre on Acre Road. Representatives from First Bus will be present, although as some wag has put on Facebook, they may be late.

Trinity Network will be discussing local history on Wednesday morning at 10am. Trinity Network is based at United Reform Church on Nesfield Road in Belle Isle.

And finally, on Thursday the Hamara Healthy Living Centre and Carers Leeds are hosting a BME Carers Roadshow for unpaid carers from across Leeds’ diverse communities. The event, which runs 10:30am-1:30pm,  aims to raise awareness of unpaid caring and the information, advice and support that is available in Leeds. Free food and refreshments will also be available. Hamara is on Tempest Road in Beeston, LS11 6RD.
