Armley Festival: More details emerge


More information about a major new event to bring the feel-good factor back to Armley has been released.

As previously reported, the 2016 Armley Festival will be held on August 6.

A prerss release issued by organisers All Together Armley said the event had the backing of Leeds City Council, the businesses who attended the Armley Business Forum and others.

Based on Town Street the festival will have live music, street stalls, food from afternoon teas to Baklava and Kielbasa. It will also feature demonstrations from West Yorkshire emergency services, amongst others.

A spokesperson for the group said it promised to be a great day out for everyone, whatever your age or origin:

‚ÄúThis is going to be a showcase of all that is good about Armley its history and diversity. We have had a massive response so far from groups and individuals but would love to hear from anyone who would like to take part in or help organise the event.”

The event will offer a boost to the Town Street area which last week suffered a blow with the news the Co-op store is set to close next month, with more than 20 redundancies.
