Shears Yard tasting dinner

Music and food at OnRoundhay Festival

Roundhay Park is hosting a new festival on the 17th September in association with John Lewis and Leeds Indie Food.

There’s going to be live music, including performances from Primal Scream and Wolf Alice, but the real interest for us is the foodie highlights! There’ll be a cooking school and a true feast of food with 20 street food stalls. Kids go free, so there really is no excuse not to get the whole family down for a feast on the 17th!

Where it is: Roundhay Park, Leeds LS8 2ER

Tickets: £45 (under 12s go free)

Welcoming Vice & Virtue to the fine dining scene

Fine dining in Leeds has largely been restricted to The Man Behind The Curtain, but the arrival of Vice & Virtue should do wonders for the Leeds fine dining scene.

Opening on the 10th September, if you fancy a special meal out, it’s well worth checking out one of Leeds’ newest restaurants.

Where it is: 72, 68 New Briggate, Leeds LS1 6NU

Reservations: 0113 345 0202

Bossa brings South American food to Leeds
