Kirkstall Festival – Sat 11 July 15, 11am – 5pmBy Helen • Jul 9th, 2015 • Category: Community, Entertainment & events
The 2015 Kirkstall Festival will take place on Saturday 11th July in the picturesque grounds of the 12th Century Kirkstall Abbey. The Festival is probably the largest community festival in Leeds run entirely by volunteers. Last year attracted around 25,000 people. It is not a Rock Festival, or a County Show, but an event that will entertain people of all ages with events including:
• Over 160 stalls
• Battle of the Bands
• Tea Dance
• 8 performance areas
• Comedy; Rock, Classical, Jazz, Folk and Light music
• Food and Drink
• Local Information
The Festival receives a small proportion of its funding from Council grants, but is mainly self-financing raising money from the stalls, food franchises, fairground and programme sales.
If you are asked to buy a programme on your way in, please do not walk past, £2 is a small amount to pay for a days entertainment!
