Popular Kirkstall Art Trail (KAT) returns for the fifth time this Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st as businesses and private homes once again open their doors to display local artists creations, writes Keely Bannister.
The eclectic mix of venues which will be hosting art includes Kirkstall Abbey, St Stephen’s Church, Headingley Allotments and a train station underpass!
As well as viewing local artists’ work, attendees can also take part in a range of workshops and events such as helping to create a community mural, enjoying a guided walk around the tranquil grounds of TCV Hollybush and listening to a poetry reading.
Accompanying the art trail will be a Duck Trail: 100 yellow plastic ducks will be hidden around the trail each day. If you find one with a number from one to five on the bottom and take it to a member of the KAT team, you will receive a goody bag.
Attendees will also have the chance to view the newly unveiled public art sculpture Latent Power outside Kirkstall Leisure Centre.
The trail is free, designed to be as inclusive as possible with families and children being welcome.
