What’s the date of new Armley Festival?

Planning is under way for this summer’s Armley Festival – and local residents are being encouraged to take part.

The focus of the festival will be based around a multi-cultural bazaar along the Town Street, with hot-food tasting and cooking demonstrations.

Food will be available for sample and sale from tea and scones to Kielbasa & Baklava. Gifts and novelty festival crafts will also be on sale, interspersed with face painting, henna tattooing, hair styling, crafts and more.

There will be a staged area for live acts and music. Steel bands, folk groups, classical, school groups and rock music.

There will also be a performance area for children’s entertainers, dance groups and street performers.

It is hoped that Armley Moor will host a high energy area with a funfair, sports activities, challenge events such as climbing walls and animal events. The fire brigade and West Yorkshire Police with demonstrations.

The event is being put together by the All Together Armley community group, working in partnership with Leeds City Council, Citizens UK and other community groups and charities.

Residents and local community groups can email their  interest or questions to alltogetherarmley@gmail.com.
