A popular annual West Leeds event is calling for volunteers to help out on the day.

Kirkstall Festival on July 11th urgently needs more people to join the programme sales team.

The festival, based in the grounds of Kirkstall Abbey, is now in its 35th year and last year attracted over 25,000 people during the course of the day. It’s one of, if not the, biggest community festival of its type in the city.

One of the organisers, volunteer Richard Honey, said:

“One of the main ways we keep it as a free event is through selling programmes.

“Even an hour of your time is valuable – if you can manage more then even better – offer half a day of help or more we will provide you with a food voucher usable at one of the many outlets on site offering delicious lunches and snacks.

“Plus it’s good fun, working with a great bunch of volunteers. Let me know if you’re interested by emailing richard.honey@ntlworld.com.

“Once you’ve signed up I’ll get back with an acknowledgement, information on where and how to sell, plus reminders nearer the day. If you need further information, contact me.”

This year’s festival promises:

  • Fairground
  • Over 100 stalls
  • Youth Stage
  • Tea Dance
  • Eight performance areas
  • Comedy; Rock, Classical, Jazz, Folk and Light music
  • Food and Drink
  • Procession
  • Displays
  • Local Information
