I only heard of this 'cos the kind lady in the Civic Trust book shop gave me a card about it.

Has anyone heard of this free event?

This will never do Jogon - advance announcements about events in the city is strictly frowned upon.

Do you not know that the Leeds way is to read about such interesting sounding events in the YEP a couple of days after they've happened?

Seriously though it does sound like a good weekend of events and well worth a visit - thanks for posting.

Just one final query though from the list of events: "Granary Wharf, the Leeds Riviera" - really?

There is an article about the event in the June 2012 'North Leeds Life' free magazine that was delivered a couple or more weeks back. I don't know though if there are issues that cover other areas of Leeds.

The magazine has a 'They lived in Leeds' section and the subject of that in the June 2012 issue is a very interesting article on 'Leonora Cohen, 1873-1978. JP, OBE, Militant Suffragette' who died aged 105.

Just imagine if the Isle of Cynder had survived. Now that would be a cutesy bijou place worth visiting.

I remember one they had about 25 years ago it was a great day out and we woundered why they didnt do it again. I think it would be a great way of developing the city if we promoted the citys waterways more. As a side note the it looks like the waste disposal depot on Old Mill Lane Hunslet has removed it planing application so Miller Homes may now go ahead with its marina developement.
