North Leeds Food Festival Announces Two Weekend Dates for 2021
The North Leeds Food Festival will return to Roundhay Park on 7-8 August and 11-12 September 2021, showcasing a variety of the best food, drink, performing arts and talented chefs in the region.
After being forced to cancel in 2020, organisers are bringing the North Leeds Food Festival back to Roundhay Park for it’s 5th anniversary celebrations on 7-8 August and 11th-12th September 2021, and promise a bigger selection of food and drink, alongside brand new performances and attractions.
Michael Johnston, Festival Director said: “We work hard to improve on the festivals every year, and for 2020 this was no different – we were so excited to showcase some amazing 5th anniversary attractions, but with the pandemic had no choice but to cancel. However, we’ve taken full advantage of this extra time to plan for 2021, and are thrilled to have been able to expand and develop even further! We know our wonderful traders are so excited to be back, and we can’t wait for everyone to get tucked in to everything we have in store.”
What’s On at North Leeds Food Festival 2021
The festivals focus on a huge selection of freshly made international cuisine, independent bars and breweries, an expansive artisan market featuring local produce, craft and wellbeing businesses, a main stage with live music, entertainers and performers, an extensive children’s activities programme and a selection of fairground rides.
Also returning after it’s success in 2019 will be the Cookery Theatre, sponsored and hosted by Leeds Cookery School, which will feature professional, internationally renowned chefs demonstrating their favourite dishes live to an audience of attendees.
Hannah Dewhirst, North Leeds Food Festival Coordinator said: “After the disappointment of the 2020 cancellations, we really just wanted to bring something back to the community that would inspire, entertain and give everyone something to look forward to. It’s been a difficult year for us all in different ways, and we want this festival to encourage people to come back together, support fantastic local businesses, and really get them enjoying the summer again!”
The festival will once again run additional activities to raise funds and awareness for Leeds based charity Leeds Mind, having raised over £18,125 over the past four years for mental health charities.
