What’s On Roundup 6-12 July 2024

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 this week with not one, but two Galas, both kicking off at 12pm. Belle Isle Gala takes place at Windmill Primary School and will include the official naming of neighbouring Coopers Field by the Lord Mayor of Leeds.

Holbeck Gala takes place on Holbeck Moor. Both events feature lots of free fun family friendly activities as well as stall, refreshments and live performances. They both rely on teams of volunteers so please get down and support them.

Hunslet Nelson Cricket Club’s First XI take on Buttershaw St Paul’s CC on Saturday at Gipsy Lane, Beeston, LS11 5TT starting at 12pm. Then on Sunday the Women’s First XI entertain Colton Institute at 10am.

Hunslet ARLFC entertain Rochdale Mayfield on Saturday afternoon at The Oval, opposite Morrisons. Kick off is at 2:30pm.

There’s a Strawberry Tea at St Andrew’s Methodist Church on Old Lane in Beeston on Saturday afternoon at 4pm. Tickets are £5 from (0113) 226 7393.

Leeds Dads are hosting a pram-fiendly walk in Middleton Park on Sunday morning. Meet at the visitors centre café by the lake at 10:45am for an hour’s walk and talk.

Sunday sees two concerts in two parks. The Friends of Cross Flatts Park host Atalanta playing a mix of country, Americana a rock tunes at the Watsonian Pavilion.

Meanwhile the Friends of Middleton Park host The King & I Band, a Leeds based jazz band playing your favourite tunes on the bandstand. Both concerts run from 2:30-4:30pm and refreshments, including homemade cakes, will be served.

On Tuesday Stronger Together, a support group for parents, guardians and adult carers of children and young people with disabilities meet at BITMO’s Gate (LS10 3QH).

And finally, we incorrectly said that Beeston Community Forum would be meeting last week. In fact they moved their meeting because of the election. They will now be meeting on Thursday at 7:30pm at Beeston Village Community Centre, off Town Street, LS11 8DQ.
