Don’t miss this years Kirkstall Festival on Saturday 13th July!


We expect this years to be the best yet with a special guest, some brilliant acts and every kind of stall you can think of.

The 2013 Kirkstall Festival will take place on Saturday 13th 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 16,000 people. It is not a Rock Festival, or a County Show, but an event that will entertain people of all ages with events including:Read the latest issue of Kirkstall Matters to find out about the special Paralympic Gold Medalist who will be opening the festival. Also, read about some of the amazing acts, both returning and new that will be performing at this year’s festival:

  • Fairground
  • Over 100 stalls
  • Youth Stage
  • Tea Dance
  • 8 performance areas
  • Comedy; Rock, Classical, Jazz, Folk and Light music
  • Food and Drink
  • Procession
  • Displays
  • Local Information
This year we are delighted to be able to present a new comedy club being performed in the cloisters of the Abbey.
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 approached to purchase a programme please do. The sales of the programme enable the festival to be put on every year and it is a small price to pay for a day of fun!
