What’s On Roundup 4-10 September 2021

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 with an apology. The open day at Eiger Studios was cancelled last week, but we weren’t made aware. It is hoped the event will be reorganised for October half term.

Active Leeds is hosting an Open Weekend at Middleton Leisure Centre. With lots of different sessions on offer from Football to gymnastics, there will be something for everybody. Try out the state-of-the-art gym for free. Already a member? Why not bring a friend along to work out with you. Feeling competitive? There will be a gym challenge to get involved with too.

Holbeck & Beeston Cemeteries Volunteers will be busy scything the meadow on Saturday morning. If you want to join in all tools are provided, but bring your own packed lunch. email Heather.wagstaff@leeds.gov.uk for details of the day

The Holbeck is holding a Board Games Night on Saturday from 7:30pm. Learn a new game or play an old favourite. Cards or Die will be there to recommend and teach the games. Solo players welcome.

If you enjoy a bit jazz on a summer’s day, get to Middleton Park on Sunday. Chris White and his Jazz Trio will be on the bandstand 2:30-4:30pm. As ever this is organised by the Friends of Middleton Park.

Hunslet RLFC are dedicating their final home match of the regular season to all those we have lost in the last 18 months under the banner Hunslet Remembers. The opposition are West Wales Raiders, kick off is at 3pm, tickets are just £5 and kids go free.

City Connect are celebrating the imminent opening of the Elland Road cycle route with a free bike checks session on Tuesday 10am-12pm. Bring you bike to the Moor (near Jenkinson Lawn). West Yorkshire Police will be on hand to provide security marking, which helps identify and verify the owner of a stolen bike.

And finally, Slung Low are hosting a New Age Fundraiser at The Holbeck club on Friday at 6pm. Get along and join them in support and encouragement of Young Creatives through their struggles as performers and creators.
